The accident has left him in the Surgical Intensive Care Unit with both of his legs broken. His left leg has been saved for the moment, however, it is on moment-by-moment basis, and it is looking like, even in the best case scenario, he will have to wear a brace and will not have full functionality of his his left leg.
Thaddaeus's spine is fractured, which will put him in a brace for a while, and his lungs are very badly bruised and keep collecting fluids which are drained out. He is on a respirator due to the bruising and his right lung collapsed, so he has a chest tube.
Thaddaeus is one of the most genuine, kind and loving people you could ever meet. He's smart, funny and hard-working. He loves to make people laugh. He was about to begin classes at Mount Saint Joseph University in just a few short weeks. He had also just signed up to do a recorded stand-up comedy performance (his dream since we were teens). He's resilient. He recently lost his mother, and he has been fighting for happiness since. He is the type of person who makes the world a better place.
This fundraiser is for his recovery, and to cover his living expenses while he's out of work, which will be a very long time. He has a very long road ahead, including several surgeries and extensive physical therapy. I know how go-fund-me's are. I see a lot of them, and donate to a few, when I can. But, if you even gave a couple of dollars, know you'd be giving to the kind of person who would do the same for you. Thank you.
