Mobility and independence for John

On December 2nd, my husband Jonathan was in a severe car accident a few miles from our house. He sustained numerous injuries including a shattered clavicle, multiple broken ribs, a punctured lung and a broken spine. His spine injury has affected his spinal cord and has left him paralyzed from the waste down.

Those of you who know us know we are proud people who would not normally ask for help, but my family needs all the help that we can get right now.

Many of you have asked how you can help so please know your donations will truly make a difference. All donations will go towards medical expenses, physical therapy, travel expenses and any future modifications we may need to make to our home or car to make sure John can be as independent as possible.

Many of you know that we have a 3 month old son, John Jr., and your donations will also be used for formula and diapers for him as well.

The outpouring of love and support has already touched our little family in a way that I can't even put into words. Please know how much we appreciate and love you all.

John, Sarah and JJ O'Toole
