Driving home the following Thursday, he lost control of his vehicle on the winding, wet road to his house and went into ditch . His Explorer hit a culvert and rolled over. Rich was airlifted to the University of Missouri hospital. He had shattered his C4 vertebrae and is currently on a breathing machine. He has been heavily sedated for the past 4 weeks with little progress. He has battled pneumonia and staph infection. Rich is still not stable enough to have surgery on his neck.
Rich works at Optic Armor. His colleagues wish to raise funds to pay for items that insurance doesn't cover. House payments, items for his children, and medical expenses are just a few of the items that we hope to help with.
Thank you for your support !
