Travis Friel Family Fund



This is my son Travis Friel and his two daughters Mea and Emiliana ages 5 and 9 months. On Sunday he was on his way home from North Dakota after working a week long hitch on the oil field, he was involved in an accident that broke his femur and shattered his knee resulting in having a rod placed from hip to knee.The driver of the other vehicle fell asleep at the wheel which caused a head on collision. Doctors have said it would be about a year recovery and alot of physical therapy. His fiance Deidra got the initial phone call that would change life for their family. Travis is one of those people that everyone just loves. He has always been a hard worker, doing anything necessary to provide for his family even working two jobs and 600+ miles from home. Making sure his fiance and girls were taken care of has always been his top priority and they became first time home owners at age twenty-three. Watching him play with his daughters is something that would make the observer laugh out loud. He was not afraid to have his toenails painted or wear a tiara because Mea was always the princess and he was her prince. She was his favorite fishing partner. This accident has been devastating, he now has so much pain, stress and guilt for his family. He has been sole provider but now Deidra will have to carry that load. He needs around the clock care as well as the girls so Deidra can provide. If you have ever had the chance to meet Travis you will know this isn't an easy reality for him to accept. This is a man that has always been a leader and supporter of anyone who is close to him. His younger brother and sister easily admit he is the greatest man they know, he has always been an amazing role model to them. As his mother I cannot even begin to describe how proud I am of the man he became. Neither Travis nor Deidra are asking for anything but as family and friends we need to help soften the blow. ANYTHING will be greatly appreciated.
