Keith Thomas Jr Recovery Support

If you know Keith Thomas Jr (and good luck finding someone who doesn’t!) you most likely can’t help but love him.  Whether you’ve known him for years or for just a short time, I’m sure he’s made you smile more times than you can count.  I think I can speak for all of us when I say that Keith’s larger than life personality has impacted our lives for the better in one way or another.  Now it’s time for us all to send some positivity back his way.

As most of you know, Keith was involved in a devastating accident this past July and suffered a severe spinal cord injury leaving him currently paralyzed from the chest down.  He has spent the past 2 months in the ICU and is now transitioning to a rehabilitation facility.  While we are happy to hear he is moving in a positive direction, we also know he has a very long and challenging road ahead of him. 

His parents Keith Sr and Gloria, and his sister Michelle, have been focusing non-stop on finding the best care for him.  His parents will need to do an extensive remodel on their house in the next month to modify for Keith’s needs and safety when he returns home from rehab.  This will include installing ramps, adding and widening doorways, and adding an additional bathroom that will be accessible.  Equipment such as a customized wheelchair, a hospital bed, a lift system, and an accessible van may also need to be purchased. 

Many of you have asked how you can help.  As you can imagine, the road to recovery and everything that goes along with it, is very expensive.  In addition to major home renovations and necessary medical equipment expenses, Keith will be responsible for hospital bills, rehab bills, medical transportation costs, home health care, and more.  We all want to help make sure he receives the very best of care and has every possible resource available to him to help with his recovery and quality of life.  The best way that we can do that right now is to help alleviate the financial stress this has put on him and his family. 

Let’s show Keith and the Thomas Family that they are not alone and how much he is loved by his family of friends!
