As many of you may have heard already, my 18-year-old brother Dominic Gregory was in a car accident earlier this month. He was thrown through the windshield of his truck after hitting a patch of ice and rolling the vehicle several times. The police were nearby so he was quickly airlifted to the nearest major hospital in Jackson, Mississippi. They discovered that he had suffered a skull fracture and severe traumatic brain injury, and since then he has been recovering in the ICU.
In the first few days, we did not know if he would survive, but I’m so happy to say that my brother is making an astounding recovery! He continues to surprise his medical team with his progress. They did not expect him to be able to speak right away, but he was singing Christmas carols with his nurses only one day after being taken off the ventilator.
Dominic is so strong, and has come so far already, but he still has a long way to go. He needs to go home to Minnesota where he will have the best chance for a full recovery. There he will be close to his parents, brothers and sisters, aunts, uncles, cousins, and all of his friends and neighbors whose love and support will be critical to regaining his strength and memories.
Dominic will need a medical flight to the rehab facility in Minnesota. This means he needs a private flight directly from the hospital in Jackson to St. Cloud with a medical team at his side to ensure his safety. The hospital is organizing a flight through a program that has volunteer pilots and medical staff. Even with their generosity, the cost of fuel is not included, and this alone is expected to be $13,000. If you could chip in a few dollars to help cover this expense to bring him home, it would make a world of a difference.
Many thanks again to all of you have been keeping him in your thoughts and prayers, and thank you for considering supporting his trip home. We would be forever grateful for your generosity.
