Help Mike Turner after a Near-Fatal Accident

Mike Turner was in a Near-Fatal Accident when a backhoe pinned him against a storage container. He was working alone in a remote area of Illinois when he was crushed. With no one around for miles, he had made his peace, knowing that his life was ending.

After a painful eternity of time had passed, a string of miraculous events led a friend to find Mike. He was air-lifted to a trauma unit hours away. His condition was critical but he survived!

Mike has been in the hospital for 7-weeks and counting! He is making huge strides in recovering from life-threatening and crippling injuries. He is making amazing progress but he will need long-term care, extensive rehab, and a lot of medical intervention and equipment.

The work that Mike has done for years has benefited so many. As a hard-working provider, loving husband, father, and friend, he has been taking care of others for decades. He's the last person to ask for help from anyone, so I'm here to ask on Mike's behalf and on behalf of his family to please share what you can.

Your generosity will allow Mike to concentrate on his recovery. It will also help his wife, Stacey, focus on being his full-time caregiver without either of them having to worry about being able to put food on the table because of their drastically reduced income.

Mike's life has been forever changed by this horrific accident, but we can lend him a hand, ease his mind a bit, and let him know that his friends (old and new) and his family love him and are there to help.

Please donate what you can.

Thank you!
