We started this go fund me for my sister and her family in hopes to help ease
some of the financial weight they
currently have off of their shoulders.
Last week my brother in law had a
terrible fall. He was moving a pump that was in their pool and the hose broke
causing him to fall 8ft down onto
concrete. He shattered his leg from the
knee down to his ankle and ankle joint.
( A Left tibia fracture that extends
through the ankle joint and ankle)His leg is still in the same shape except he has an apparatus holding it in a stable position
until some swelling subsides and he can
hopefully undergo surgery next week.
The surgeons have been very honest in
explaining that he may come out of
surgery with no natural bone in that part of his limb. They have also explained that there are many things he will not be able to do that he has done all his life.
My brother in law is the sole provider for their family of 4. They have two kids
Jordan (15 years old)and Payton (5 years old). My sister just closed her business of 9 years almost 1 year to the day of this.
After a crazy year , they were finally in a good place and now this happened. My
brother in law is a very hard worker. He
just moved up in the company he works
for after being with them for only 1 year. He was also given the option to stay
home during the COVID-19 pandemic
but he chose to go to work everyday. He and his company played a huge part in
building “The field hospital” for Stony
Brook Hospital -which was meant for the overflow of COVID patients. My sister
and brother in law have come so far in
their lives and are now faced with this.
They are taking all measures they can
financially but we know realistically that still will not be enough to get them
through this. The best case scenario has him out of work for a minimum of 6
months. He will have to pretty much
learn how to walk on that leg again. With an injury like this, the doctors need to get in there and really see what’s going on to know if he will actually be able to go back to his current job in the future. We are
asking if any of you would find it in your
hearts to donate a little something to
help them out during this time , it would
truly mean so much. Thank you all for
taking a minute out of your day to
consider helping them ❤️
