Serious Semi Accident Help Needed

Our son-in-law, James Boardman, was involved in a near fatal semi accident in Pennsylvania on Tuesday
May 30 2017. James (Rusty) is a self-employed long-haul trucker and his wife Kristin stays home to help run his business. Due to this accident, they do not have any income coming in and she needs to be with him out of state the entire time in order to help with his healing and multiple surgeries that are needed. James has always been self-sufficient, hard-working, motivated, and generally... just a loving, kind helpful guy who would GIVE the shirt off of his own back to help someone else in need! James, is basically crushed and broken from the waist down. Many people have asked how they can help this young couple through this tramatic and difficult situation, so we created this page to let others help and also stay informed on his various medical issues. They will be at Shadyside Presbyterian , UPMC, Hospital in Pittsburgh for a matter of time unknown to us at this point.
We are just asking that if you find it in your heart or are wanting to help this young couple, that you donate to this page we have set up for them! They have a long long road to recovery, which means a long long road of stress, ups and downs, surgeries, rehabilitations and emotions! Any possible way to relieve some of that through donations, is greatly greatly appreciate it! Thank you very much in advance for your help !
