Help Michael Legatie & Family

As many of you know, Mike Legatie (a NJ State Trooper, husband, father, son, brother, relative, and dear friend to many) was struck by a vehicle on the evening of Friday, March 2nd while clearing a tree limb from a road. Mike is a 'first-in' type of guy who's always there for his family, friends, and squad members no matter what the situation or the call. This was the case once again, as Mike was off-duty and driving home from dinner with his family when the accident occurred. 

By the grace of God and the hardness of Mike's head, he's still with us. The doctors hope and expect he will make a full recovery. But in the mean time, Mike is facing a prolonged hospital stay, corrective surgeries, rehab, lost time at work for both him and Staci, medical bills and deductibles, and additional miscellaneous expenses. There's no way of knowing at this point exactly how much all of these expenses will be. But we do know that there are so many of us that want to support Mike, Staci, Griff, and the whole family, to make certain that whatever their worries are right now, finances don't have to be part of that. 

No matter how much or how little, please give to help this family through a very difficult time. Thank you!
