Ethan Layton & Family Fund

On Friday, September 14th, 2018, Ethan was involved in a motorcycle accident.  His accident occurred as he was getting on to the freeway at Morada and Hwy 99, in Stockton, CA. Ethan sustained injuries that include a compound fracture to his tibia and fibula, as well as several broken bones in his foot and 4 broken toes.  Ethan was rushed to County Hospital ER were he underwent surgery to clean and repair the breaks.  He had two plates placed in his leg to reconnect the breaks, and several pins in his foot and toes to help those breaks heal correctly. 

Ethan and his girlfriend, Kristin, own a home together, where they raise their beautiful 4 year old daughter, Paisley Rae.  Ethan works as a Scale House Manager at the Port of Stockton.  He is an incredibly hard worker and prides himself on being able to provide for his family.  Ethan is the primary provider for their family, which allows Kristin to be able to work less hours so that she can be home with Paisley Rae. 

Due to this unfortunate incident, Ethan will be completely immobile for at least two weeks after his surgery, and unable to put any weight on his foot for at least 6 weeks.  After that, he will likely need physical therapy and may suffer chronic pain for 6 months to a year, as the bones in his leg and foot heal and muscles around them rebuild themselves.  

We know Ethan will do everything in his power to get back up on his feet and get back to work to provide for his family, however, in the mean time, Ethan, Kristin, and Paisley could really use our help.  Ethan will need 24 hour assistance in the initial 2 weeks of recovery.  After that, he'll still need help getting around and caring for himself and their daughter until the Doctors clear him to begin putting weight on his leg.  We are certain all our family and friends will do everything we can to help and support their family, but any financial assistance you can offer could make a tremendous difference, to insure they will be able to keep their home and help them provide for Paisley through this season.  All donations will go directly to any medical expenses and to any financial need that may arise due to the loss of wages caused by this accident.

Thank you so much for your generosity and your prayers.
