Unfortunately, it is an unusual location for the fracture and less common in someone in their 30's. He was transferred to Mayo Clinic where they are trying to keep him comfortable while the orthopedic team is working hard on the best strategy to repair his hip. He currently has his leg on traction while awaiting surgery planned for June 8, 2017.
With rising medical bills and likely recovery of greater than 3 months where he will be unable to bear weight on his leg and be unable to work, they could certainly use a little help!
Jerrod is married to my sister, Dana and they have 2 young daughters, Laney and Riley. Jerrod is the sole income earner for their family as my sister is a stay-at-home mom and caregiver for all their animals.
Jerrod is a jack of all trades but his main job is as a farrier shoeing horses. He just started his busy season and he will be unable to work for the majority of the summer.
They would never ask for help so I thought I'd ask for a rally to help them cover some medical bills so they can work on healing and getting Jerrod back home!
Thank you sincerely for all who donated or have already reached out to them offering help and prayers. Let's show them what family and friends can do!
