On Janurary 7th our family got terrifying news that would not only change our lives but his life forever. Kurt was involved in a fire accident at home while attending to the wood burner. Burns covered 70% of his body with 25% of those being third and forth degree burns. He was taken to a local hospital where they stabilized him and was then life-flighted to Toledo Mercy St. Vincent Hospital. He is currently listed in critical but stable condition and on a ventilator. He is making progress but will have to undergo multiple surgeries and skin graphs. This fund is to help cover any and all medical bills. The hospital has not informed us how long his stay will be just that it will be a long process. As most of you know emergency room stays are very expensive and when he returns home we want him to concentrate on getting better and not be faced with a pile of bills. Any and all donations will be greatly appreciated by his family, and we thank you all in advance. If you are unable to donate we simply ask for him to be in your prayers. Thank you!
