Richard Zimmer Injury Fund Raiser

My brother Richard Zimmer was helping his sister repair her roof on Friday, 10/27, when he fell from her 2 story home. He has suffered major injuries and is in serious condition. His injuries include: fractured skull, shattered pelvic bone, a broken rib, 3 broken discs in his back, and 2 in his neck.

He is in ICU and after 2 surgeries had titanium plates put in his head and metal plates and rods in to hold his pelvic bone together. We are waiting on what we hope will be his last surgery to put the metal plates and rods for his pelvic bone inside where they will stay permanently. He is in a lot of pain and is not out of the woods yet but seems to be getting a little better every day.

Unfortunately he does not have any medical insurance and is unable to work due to his injuries. Additionally, his wife lost her job earlier this year so they currently have no source of income.

Richard and his wife Sharon are 2 of the most caring and giving people. They are always helping out those in need without hesitation.

We are asking anyone that is able to please help them in their time of need. Even if they are able to get assistance with the medical bills, which they have applied for, they will still have no way to pay for bills, food, and other every day expenses.

We are praying every day that he makes a full recovery and can turn back into his normal self. Richard had just started his own home improvement business this past summer that he loves. Even if he recovers, we have no way of knowing if and when he might be able to work again.

Every little bit will go a long way and help them get through this terrible ordeal. We appreciate all the support, love and prayers that are sent their way more than we can express.


Sincerely,

Joan McCormick (And Family)
