Jeff Goranson Medical and Recovery Fund

On December 23, 2019, Jeff fell through scaffolding from the fourth floor of an apartment complex.  He broke his pelvis, six ribs and received multiple staples and stitches in his head and left leg.  His pain is extremely severe.  He has started physical therapy and realizes that his road to recovery will be a long one.  Doctor's have stated that physical therapy could be a long process and Jeff will likely be bound to a wheelchair or a walker, once advanced, for the next two to three months.  Lesa, Jeff's wife has not left his bedside and will be assisting in his care until he is strong enough to care for himself.    The goal of this fundraiser is to aid in living expenses due to the lost wages for both Jeff and his wife as they are unable to work for the next few months.  Any donation is much appreciated.
