So many people have reached out to me to try and help Jakob. Here's your chance and here's his story...
Jakob Plummer is a 20 year old rodeo student at Vernon College. On March 18, 2017, he was in a tragic vehicle accident with three other friends on the way home from a rodeo. Two of his friends lost their lives in the accident and Jakob is still fighting for his own life.
He has lost his spleen and one kidney. He has several broken bones, including ribs, coller bone and shoulder. He is currently unconcious, with swelling and bleeding on the brain, luckily not requiring surgery. Doctors are optimistic that he will wake up when his body is ready but he will have a long road of recovery ahead of him.
I cannot imagine the medical expenses that will start coming in, beginning with the careflight, the surgery to remove organs and a bed in ICU until he regains conscousness. As most of you know, Jake is my nephew. He and his brother, Ethan, have lived with their Nanny & Papa (Randy & Deloras Plummer) since their mom passed away in 2007, and this will be a huge financial burden on his grandparents. Jakob is worth every penny!
We appreciate all the prayers, all the love and all the support. For the Grace of God that our Jake is still here with us.
