Last night, March 22, Nate was in a head on collision with a semi truck near Perkins, OK on Highway 33. He is lucky to be alive but is not out of the woods yet. He and his family have a long road to recovery.
He made it through his first surgery this morning to remove his spleen. He has a broken nose, crushed face, broken vertebrae in his neck, broken collar bone, air and blood in his lung, broken foot, gashed knee all the way to the joint, and major cuts from the glass.
We will update this page as we get more information, but the costs of this initial surgery, ICU, recovery room, and all of the upcoming physical therapy will be astronomical. Please, if you can donate anything, even $5, everything helps. Above all, please pray for Nate!
Also pray for Chris and Tiffany Calavan, Nate's Dad and stepmom, and Nate's little brothers who will be missing their hero, and his younger sister Kayci, who misses him dearly, and his mom, Kim Howell . Also, pray for Tammy Nguyen, Nate's girlfriend, who has not left his side since she got to the hospital.
