Army veteran recovering from surgery

Many of you know my brother Ryan! He fell off a hoverboard a couple weeks ago and fractured a vertebrae and his sternum. Upon doing a cat scan they found some of his intestines and bowels were leaking waste into his body. He was suffering from acute blood poisoning with high levels if bacteria. They had to do emert surgery at the Veterans hospital in Asheville, NC.  Thankfully, they were able to remove the infected parts and give him a colostomy bag till everything heals. In 8 weeks, he will have to undergo surgery again.  He will be out of work for a few months, and we are looking for some help paying his bills.  We've got this month taken care of, but he also has a dog and a cat that need taken care of also. Any little bit helps, I know most of us are struggling right now, but I hope we can pull through for Ryan. He is the type of person that will help anyone anytime. Thanks guys!!
