Fundraiser for Thomas Saunders

The family of Charlene Saunders had tragedy stike their lives on the morning of Friday, January 9, 2015. At 7:02 A.M Charlene Saunders' son- Thomas Saunders was struck by a vehicle and thrown 20+ feet while crossing the road near Dow High School.  Thomas is in Critical Condition at Mid Michigan Medical Center.  Thomas has had 2 major surgeries so far, and has sustained injuries to his:  Brain, Orbital Sockets, Jaw, and Lungs as well as multiple other fractures.  Thomas  is currently using a cooling blanket and ventilator while in Intensive Care.  Thomas continues to make progress daily, but there is still a long road to go for both him and his family.  Thomas' mother (Charlene), has been at his side 24/7 since the accident, and as you can imagine, this is a very traumatic time for her and her family. I simply ask that you please take the time and donate/help however you can.  Being such a close community, I am hoping that we can help relieve some of the financial burden that comes with tragedies such as this.  Let's all pull together with some donations as well as prayers/good thoughts.  Thank you for your time.

For those of you wondering...I am a friend of Thomas' mother, Charlene. I started this fundraising campaign to help out the Saunders family in this time of need.
