On August 18th 2017 Kyle was involved in an accident involving a motor vehicle while riding a bicycle on hwy 47 in Hawk Point Missouri. Kyle suffered a broken leg as well as a severe brain injury known as Diffuse Axonal Injury (DAI) and has been in ICU in a coma for several days. He is beginning to respond to very minimal commands but doctors are indicating he has a very long road to recover ( many months ). Brain injuries are very traumatic for everyone involved and the family is still trying to understand themselves what the future holds. At this point there are still many unknowns to the extent of the brain injury but the family is being very hopeful that a full recovery is possible.
Kyle has always been a very caring person that literally would give the shirt off his back to help another person even though at times he needed more help than they did. We want to give Kyle the opportunity to heal and not lose the few things in his life that are important to him. His Loving fiance which has been by his side for many years has continued to be with him through his struggle to recover day in and day out.
Luckily Kyle does have health insurance but will still have a deductible to pay. Kyle may be without work for a very extended period of time. During this time there will be expenses incurred to insure he gets the medical treatment he needs.
Kyle was also the main financial supporter of his family which means while he is in the hospital and being cared for by his fiance his bills are going to begin to pile up. The family has already begun to try to make responsible decisions in preperation of all of this through these hard times but a little help to keep up with necessities would be very much appreciated.
Kyle and Katelynn are very good people whom are worthy of help. Katelynn fully accepts the sacrafices she needs to make to help Kyle through his recovery. She has already taken steps and been willing to reduce her bills as much as posible in order to be by his side. Know that the help you provide will go for important things such as rent, car insurance, health insurance to cover Kyle's medical bills and food. Any help is appreciated no matter how small. If you want to help personally or give in person you can message Aaron and I will give you his father or fiance's contact information.
