Recovery for Casey

Casey is from Savannah, Georgia, one of the prettiest cities in the south. He has spent most of his life here having also lived in a few smaller towns around the country. He grew up with a curiousty for exploring and a natural talent for the arts. Casey used his talents to dable in photography, wood working, found art projects, ect. He is a bit of a "jack of all trades", I have found that there's not much that he is not good at or cannot learn. He works full time as an electrician with Next Generation Electric which is locally owned and together he and I, long term girlfriend aka the other/better half, have a small screen printing buisness that we run out of our home. He is a very hard worker who loves to stay busy working with his hands. Everything that he makes or builds goes directly back into our business.
        On November 29th 2017 Casey had just left work heading home on his motorcycle when a woman traveling from the opposite direction turned in front of him cutting him off and causing him to hit her.  He was thrown from his motorcycle causing him injury and totalling the bike.  Upon my arrival he was being put on a stretcher and rushed to the hospital.  He suffered a broken wrist, a large laceration on his leg, and multiple wounds on his hands and back.  He is incredibly lucky to be alive.  
       We met in September of 2012  and there were instant sparks.  Since then, Casey and I have built a beautiful life together; we have a home, 3 amazing dogs, our art, and our screen printing  business.  Our future goal is to be able to quit our jobs so that we can focus on our business and on our continued committment to be apart of an ever growing artist community here in Savannah.         Since he has been home, Casey has undergone surgery on his arm and is now in a cast,  got the stitches out of his leg, and most of the wounds on his upper body have began to heal.  However, his fight is not over the medical bills are coming in, and while he was not found at fault for his accident, going back and forth with the insurance companies is a battle of its own.  He has been out of work and will be out of work for some time while he continues to heal and undergoes therepy to gain movement back in his wrist and hand.  Not only has he been in constant pain since he's been home, but his nights have been sleepless, the medications make him sick, and he's gone back and forth with despression. Our buisness went from a two person operation to a one person and while this time of year is slower we still have to fill orders and set up at art markets. We also went from a two person income to a one person household income.  I work as a bartender but with it being the slow season this time of year finances are tight.  
    Casey is regularly going back and forth to doctors and getting medications, there's a co-pay or a new prescription every time all of which comes out of pocket. This is only the beginning of a long journey to full recovery and getting back to work. We have been so forturnate to have so many friends and family who have stepped in to help in our time of need.  We understand that the holiday season has just passed and for many this time of year can be tough but we are asking for your help.  Even a small amount will assist with bills, doctor's visits, and medications. Not only will your donation help with medical costs but they will also assist in taking care of other household bills.
     As a token of our appreciation we are offering incentives for those who can and are willing to help.  Thank you for taking the time to read our story. 

It is during our darkest moments that we must focus to see the light. —Aristotle Onassis
