Help the Rob Atkinson recovery fund

While making a breadboard Rob suffered some major injuries when a piece of wood kicked back off the tablesaw and before he could respond he cut several of his fingers off.
After some time at Stanford in Pleasanton he was taken to San Francisco to a trauma center that specializes in reattachment surgery.
The medical team was able to do a vein and skin graph to help attach the middle and ring finger but unfortunately they were not able to attach the pinky finger.
Rob will spend the next several days in the hospital.
We should know in a few days if the surgery was successful and if the fingers will permanently be saved.
It is expected to take Rob over a year to recover in which he will need to return to the hospital  twice a month for the next year also  for more possible surgeries as well as physical therapy.
 ****With Rob being a self employed handyman and a mechanic he will be out of work without any pay for quite some time. Here is where you can help.  
Any funds you can donate will help Rob pay his bills, rent and all these unexpected medical cost  while he is out of work.
