Kenny Cope's Road to Recovery Fund

Dear Friends, Family, and Visitors alike,

As many of you may know, Kenny Cope was in a severe accident, where he was hit by a dump- truck on Tuesday night, August 14, 2018. He is currently in the hospital with a very lengthy recovery ahead of him. We ask that you please keep him and his family in your prayers.

That Monday before the accident started like any other day. Kenny had just taken a couple of days off to spend with his family. He drove up to North Florida, with his daughter Katelynn (14), his son Blake (9), and his wife Ursula. Kenny had been planning this mini get-a-way for a while, and just wanted to spend as much quality time with his kids as he could before the school year started. This was just a small testament to the love and dedication he has for his family. He knew the vacation was to be over the next day, Tuesday, so he wanted to get a head start and drive out to town to pick up a few things before the drive home. Unfortunately, his plans were changed drastically when he was hit by the dump truck.

Kenny was found unconscious, with his legs broken in multiple places, broken ribs, punctured lung, and a severe concussion, along with many other small injuries and bruises. The police and fire department had to use the jaws of life to get him out from under the rubble. He was immediately taken to St. Mary’s Hospital in West Palm Beach. While at St. Mary’s, his condition was far worse than they initially thought.

Aside from the previous injuries, he also had compound fractures in his hips, ankles, and had a fractured femur, which he needed a metal rod to be placed from his hip to his knee, and he needed reconstructive knee surgery due to this injury. This will be a very long recovery, with doctor’s estimating 9-12 months before he will be able to walk again.

Kenny has an incredibly positive attitude. Even throughout the struggles, he is still smiling and extremely positive. His family is trying to stay just as positive, but it is proving to be difficult because their insurance is giving them a hard time, which is delaying a lot of his medical needs.

It has been a month already since the accident, but due to the delay and the seriousness of his injuries, he won’t even be able to start physical therapy for another 6 months. Kenny and Ursula did not want to start a GoFundMe page, but we here at Big Red Communications, realize how dire his situation is, and how much help they will be needing these next few months. Ursula, Kenny’s wife, will now be the sole-provider of their family and this will take a tremendous toll on her and their children. The Cope family has been there for so many of us and has never asked for anything in return. Kenny has literally given the shirt off his back to someone who needed it, and he would do that again in a heartbeat. It’s time for this family to see how much they are loved.

We have set up this page to raise funds for Kenny’s medical expenses, and to help relieve the pressure of upcoming expenses that his family will have to endure. Any amount would help this family in tremendous ways. We appreciate everyone’s time and donations.

Thank you again, and God Bless.

Big Red
