John Vcourt: Cold Days- Warm Hearts

On Monday May 21st John Vaillancourt was playing softball in St. Paul, Minnesota. After running up the fence to catch a fly ball, he came down with more than just that. 

John severely broke his tibia and fibula in his left leg. An ambulance was called while he laid in agony on the outfield surrounded by his team mates. Later the next morning around 2:30 am John was sent into emergency surgery suffering from Compartment Syndrome which is very rare and immensely painful! After 4 hours of surgery John was sent to his room with a wound V.A.C., still in extreme amounts of pain. 

John has yet to undergo another surgery as well as a skin graph. He will be also be receiving physical therapy for the next weeks to come. 

The costs of his medical bills are far more than we can undertake alone, so we are reaching out to his friends and family to financially support our beloved John. These funds will go into assuring that John gets all of the medical treatment he needs so he can go back out on the field to do what he loves. 

If you can't help financially please send your thoughts and prayers his way and please keep sharing this so we can reach our goal! 

Every little bit helps. For us every penny counts.
