Skin Graft and Medical Expenses

Yesterday morning our daughter Justine and son in law Shane with our 1 year old grandson Liam left for their first family trip to Pismo for a weekend of family fun with friends. Unfortunately this morning the fun turned into tragedy when Liam tripped and fell into the fire pit, even though there was no burning fire there were hot coals left from the night before, he has sustained 2nd and 3rd degree burns on his hand, fingers and wrist, he was taken to the Pismo ER where he was treated, they felt the injuries needed to be treated by a Pediatric Burn Specialist so they had him transported by Ambulance to Grossman Burn Center in Bakersfield, after being seen by the Burn Specialist they said he will need to have Skin Grafts for his injuries, Although insurance will cover some of the costs there are going to be large out of pocket expenses that no one is prepared for, Shane and Justine will be staying in Bakersfield all next week and will both be missing work, any donation would be greatly appreciated to help Shane, Justine and our wonderful Grandson Liam. Thank you everyone for your Prayers and Donations!!    33544994_1538888513679728_r.jpeg33544994_1538888683356046_r.jpeg
