Devon is a 17 year old senior at Wayne County High School. On his way home from his after school job, he was involved in a single car accident. Devon went off the road and over corrected which caused the truck to flip three times end over end.
Devon was ejected from his truck and thrown 30 yards. He suffered two broken shoulders, a broken collar bone. He also had a small brain bleed and his T2 thru T7 vertebrae were broken leaving him paralyzed from his chest down.
After 10 days in ICU at Memorial Hospital in Savannah Ga, Devon and his family arrived at the Shepherd Center in Atlanta, GA on October 2, 2017. The family has been there a week and Devon is getting geared up to work as hard as he needs to in order to regain what independence he can.
His short term goal is to graduate on time this year and “walk, roll or stroll across that stage.”
He is such a strong kid but for his family it is the hardest thing in the world to have to watch him struggle and hurt and know they cannot fix it.
His mother has said, “No matter what, there is no doubt in my mind he will come out stronger at the end of this journey, getting to that finish line just seems like it will never come.”
In difficult times such as this one, the last thing anyone wants to worry about is money and financial obligations. The goal of this page is for those who are willing and able to give towards helping the family with medical and other expenses incurred since the accident and still future cost to come. Currently the ICU cost are $300,000 and the emergency air left cost are $50,000.00. Any amount you are able to give will be greatly appreciated and helpful for the family during this stressful time.
