Brandon and Mary (Cartier) Walter are a young, beautiful, hardworking married couple, with two (2) wonderful children (ages 1 & 4). Below is Mary's account of what happened to Brandon on the evening of June 4th. By the amazing grace of God, Brandon should fully recover but the Walter family will need a lot of help going forward. Brandon is the primary earner and without his paycheck, their financial situation looks grim. Although medical expenses should “hopefully” be covered, they have a home, a car and a family to feed. Mary also had some medical challenges. While pregnant with their second child, Mary had some costly complications that were not covered. With those bills there is an added financial strain. It’s not known how long Brandon’s recovery will take. Our goal is to raise enough, with your support, to help for at least the next 12 to 24 months. Your generosity in this time of need will be smiled upon by our Heavenly Father who wishes all men the greatest good. As it says in the Holy Bible; “Amen I say to you, as long as you did it (a good, charitable work) to one of these my least brethren, you did it to me.” Mathew 25:40 Please, in your charity donate to this most worthy cause; even a few dollars will be much appreciated and fill a great need. If you are not able to donate now or in the future, anything you can do to relieve this young family's suffering will be greatly appreciated. Whether it’s watching the children for a few hours, cleaning or preparing a meal, every little bit will help.
It was 7:00 at night, Brandon wasn’t home from work and just missed my 3rd call. I had just pulled into the driveway as the state trooper walked up. “Mary Walter? Your husband is Brandon? Can we step inside?” I was told that on Brandon’s way home he was struck by a semi-truck going 65 mph, causing him to be ejected. His car then rolled on top of him and dragged him. It took 8 people to lift the car off of him. By the Grace of God, Brandon survived. Not without major injuries though. Third degree burns caused by the car, lacerations on his head, road rash covering his body,bruises & cuts, broken sternum, and a broken neck. Tomorrow is the start to a very long road ahead for Brandon, and our family. Beginning with a skin graft & spinal surgery both being performed at the same time. Please keep him in your thoughts & prayers! Thank you so much for all support & love we have received. We will keep everyone updated. -Mary
Note: Miraculously, there were two ER Doctors who witnessed the accident and were on scene, rendering aid even before the dust settled. You know that God was truly watching over Brandon and his family that day. Thanks be to God!
