Carly Kirkpatrick is organizing this fundraiser on behalf of Carrie Kirkpatrick.
Scott suffered from a massive heart attack while driving on the morning of July 1st, 2017, resulting in a pretty severe car accident. As a result of the crash, he had a collapsed lung, liver lacerations, rib fractions, a pelvic fracture, shattered ankles, and a broken leg. Amidst all this, however, the heart was the primary concern. He lost consciousness during a heart arrhythmia called Ventricular Tachycardia in the ER which required medications, CPR, and 2 shocks. After this, he was rushed to the UW Cath Lab where 2 stints were placed in the left anterior descending coronary artery as well as a temporary pump in his heart called an Impella which helped to offload the work of the heart muscle.
He is continuing to be monitored by cardio, trauma, and ortho specialists, but there will likely be multiple treatments and surgeries required in order to fully restore him to health.
We appreciate any help that you can offer to our family to help offset the stress of medical finances. Thank you for all your support and love!
I have added my mother as the beneficiary of this campagin as she will be the one dealing with my dad's medical expenses. Her ability to stay strong throughout this has helped his healing progress, and I so appreciate all of you helping her focus on my Dad's health rather than finances during this tough time.
