During the Collegiate National Championship Rugby Match on May 6 , Robert suffered a sports injury that has left him paralyzed below the chest. He had surgery that evening for his best chance of regaining movement of his arms and hands. Robert is a strong young man with incredible faith, a wonderful family and friends to help him recover.
According to the Dana and Christopher Reeve Foundation, the average expense for the first year with high tetraplegia can be about 1 million dollars and with low tetraplegia, about $769,000. This was stated in 2016, and we know how much medical expenses went up last year.
So many of you have reached out asking how you can help this wonderful young man, outside of your prayers.
Robert's road ahead is long, and very expensive. Supporting Robert with whatever you can give and help relieve the financial burden would be greatly appreciated. With financial assistance, Robert and his family can focus on his rehab and getting healthy and strong.
If you have any questions on making a donation, please don't hesitate to contact the email on the right.
