Help Tyler "Smitty" & his family

My husband Tyler recently got into a car accident. He was driving down 512 and 89th to pick up a beehive when an animal came out into the middle of the road, he swerved and flipped and totaled his truck, when doing so he broke his shoulder bone, collar bone, 6 ribs on the right side 3 on the left, he fractured his sternum and the base of his head, he also has 2 collapsed lungs which he still has chest tubes draining blood. He was driven in an ambulance from the crash site to mesa park where he was air lifted to Holmes regional hospital where he was put in a medically induced coma for 3 days with a ventilator. Tyler is a father and husband and worked a full time job as a propulsion tech at Parabel, an algae farm, he is also a 3rd generation beekeeper. Tyler was our family's only source of income, as I am a full time student at Keiser University studying radiologic technology. We have a beautiful 2 year old son Jacob Tyler Smith. I am asking for anyone to donate anything even $1 will help. Tyler will be out of work for the next 6 months from his injuries and will have extremely high medical bills. Please anyone all Tyler wanted for me was to go to school and get my dream job. I really don't want to have to ask for help but I am in a really desperate situation financially. Thank you in advance for any assistance, thank you all for your prayers.
