Leroy Purrier Family Recovery Fund

On October 4th, 2018, LeRoy was seriously hurt when attempting to move a deer stand.  We believe he fell around 15 feet and landed on his back. There was a miracle that day as he didn't lose consciousness and was able to call for help.  He was brought to St. Mary's hospital with a back/spinal injury. The night of the incident he had back surgery as he fractured four vertebrae and ruptured one vertebrae.  LeRoy had no other major injuries, broken bones, head trauma, etc.  We are all so lucky that he is alive and is with us to continue this amazing journey we call life.

Hunting is LeRoy's passion, it brings him such happiness and peace in his life. Unfortunately he got hurt in a freak accident working on something he loves. LeRoy is driven, strong willed, and loved beyond belief. He will get through this, I have no doubt he will do what is needed so he can be back with his family, friends, and out in the woods again. Nothing has ever stopped this man from achieving what he wants and this will not be the first.

  He's got a long road ahead of him.  He's been in the ICU for 8 days and there are many uncertainties at this time in terms of his prognosis.  At a minimum, the doctors expect he will be recovering for several months.  His wife Cindy has been at his side since the accident.  As you can imagine, their lives have been turned upside down for the time being.  You can help Leroy and his family avoid the financial stress of lost income and medical bills as they spend the time needed for him to overcome this adversity.   Can you lend a hand to help Leroy and his family get back on their feet?  

For everyone that knows Leroy....you know how often he's eagerly helped so many others.  It's our turn....
