Help Shane walk again

Shane Macleod is a loving father, son, grandson, brother, fiancee, and friend to many. On November 15, 2017 on his way to work, Shane was involved in a tragic car accident resulting in serious injury. After some difficulty extricating Shane from the wreckage, he was med flighted to Mass General Hospital in Boston where he underwent extensive surgery for a broken back, multiple broken ribs, and a punctured lung. As a result of his injuries, Shane was left paralyzed from the waist down. Fortunately, Shane survived the ordeal and is on the mend. Soon he will be released to a rehabilitation center where his long, hard road to independence begins. Shane jokingly says he will be competing with his 5 month old to see who will learn to walk first. Although said with a smile and a chuckle, thoughts of not being able to provide for his family must weigh heavy on his mind and the prospect of a future in a wheelchair must be terrifying.

Shane was just entering a new chapter in his life. Within the last couple years, he met the true love of his life and fiancee. Together they have a beautiful 5 month old son. Shane beams with pride and happiness at the mention of his new baby boy. Shane was thrilled to have just started a new, exciting career in the biotech field. He was so pleased to be able to tell his son that he has a job with a title! Shane, his fiancee and son had just moved into their first apartment together and were eager to start building a life and a future together.

Shane was the sole provider for his family. Unfortunately, the accident has left him unable to work and with a long road to recovery and mounting medical expenses, they need help. His family and friends are doing what they can but a situation such as this is more than they can absorb. Donations of any amount would be greatly appreciated.

Thank You, Drive Safe!
