Standing Tall with Jimmy

On July 7, 2017 our brother Jimmy thought he was having routine, but emergency, gall bladder surgery. His gall bladder did come out, but not until July 17, 2017. The doctors discovered a Spinal Epidural Abscess in his thoracic vertebrae and he had emergency back surgery. The initial prognosis was paralysis from the waist down.
Anyone who knows Jimmy, knows that he is a fighter and over the past month he has been undergoing intense rehabilitation with success.
We are asking for your support to help offset the medical expenses that include long term physical and occupational rehabilitation, medical supplies and equipment for his return home as well as necessary structural home adaptations.
The road to recovery will be long and our faith will remain as strong as Jimmy.  Jimmy is determined to stand tall and walk again and we cannot wait to walk with him. We hope all of you will join us in helping Jimmy stand tall.
