Mark's Traumatic Brain Injury Fund

On the morning of January 31, 2018, my husband, Mark, was in a roll over accident in which he was trapped inside the vehicle and EMS had to cut open the top of the vehicle to remove him.  He was found unconcious and has remained so since the accident. He was admitted to the Trauma ICU with a traumatic brain injury, where they found six lesions on his brain in various spots, but a majority is in the left frontal lobe. In addition to the brain injury, Mark sustained broken ribs and a broken finger. The full side effects won't be known until some time after he wakes up. The neurosurgeon said there will likely be lasting effects, if he wakes up at all. The hope is that he will wake up though  due to him being young and healthy prior to this unfortunate accident. What comes next after waking is still a mystery, but it's been told to me that he will require a great deal of medical therapies to try and restore his health as much as possible.

This fund is being set up to lessen the burden of his current medical-related expenses and future recovery/therapy expenses. We have already received so much love, support and prayers and that has meant the world to me and it will do the same for him. If you have the means to donate any amount, know that it will be used to ensure Mark has what he needs. His recovery, however long it may take, is my priority. 

Thank you so much for donating and praying for his health. Words cannot express how much your generosity and concern means to both of us.
