Help Chris Drake

Many hands make light work:

Chris had a catastrophic car accident in December, 2016. Now, he is struggling to move forward — but he can't do it alone. Chris is suffering under the crushing weight of accumulated medical bills as well as ongoing, pervasive pain. He has a long way to go to recover his basic mobility and ability to work. If you can, please consider helping Chris. A little can go a long, long way.

What happened to Chris:

On December 2nd, 2016, Chris' car hydroplaned, causing him to lose control of the vehicle and careen across an intersection, rolling over completely three times. As the car rolled, Chris was ejected through the windshield and thrown 60 feet. He landed in the open road, knocked unconscious. A good Samaritan pulled over, staying with until an ambulance arrived. He was rushed to the ER with life threatening injuries, including three shattered vertebrae, a fractured pelvis, a broken and tailbone, and multiple contusions on his head, hands, and lower body. Chris was initially hospitalized for one week. Later, he was forced back to the hospital to address a painful spine infection related to the original accident. This second hospitalization lasted another 6 weeks.

What Chris needs:

Chris is uninsured and unable to cover his medical bills. As an uninsured person, these bills have been significantly reduced. Still, the amount Chris owes is staggering, and Chris' health is still gravely impaired.

Chris owns a home, has 4 children, and is unable to work fulltime due to pain. 

Paying the total he owes is simply not possible for him or his family. It would be an incredible blessing if you would consider helping Chris clear his medical debt at this difficult time.

Cost summary:

The current medical balance due is: $124,924.18

Total need: $124,924.18

How soon does Chris need funds:

Chris needs funds as soon as possible. That said, any amount given at any time will help a great deal, and will be dearly appreciated.

With sincere thanks ~
