Severely injured in Mexico!

Hello friends.  While Duane was on vacation in Mexico for a friend's wedding, he suffered a very bad accident!  He fell 30 feet off a ledge. He is in a private hospital near Sayulita Mexico. He has suffered 5 fractures, which include his femur, his hip, and three ribs.  He has undergone a 5 hour surgery to repair his pelvis, but that was unsuccessful and he will need a prosthesis to repair it. The surgery to put a plate on his femur was a success.  As you can imagine, not having insurance it has been an incredible task to get the money for the first surgery and the expensive daily hospital stay so far. Immediate family and friends have been extremely helpful. His hospital bill is growing and we are lacking funds to complete the second surgery.  Our goal is to get Duane well enough to fly home where he can be under our care.  We are asking for your help to donate as much as you can toward the hospital repair of his pelvis; however, anything that you can give will be greatly appreciated. Without this immediate surgery, he is unable to fly and get home where he can start healing. Duane is humbled by all of you that have helped and can help. We will keep you updated on his progress. Please keep him in your thoughts and prayers.
