Support for Joey and Nikki

Joey and Nikki Hyatt are dear friends of mine (Todd Smith).  They are newly weds as of a few months ago and, like most young couples, are starting new jobs and trying to make ends meet.  Yesterday, Tuesday March 28th, Joey was involved in a terrible accident at Miracle Hill in Traveler's Rest, where he works as a donation attendant.  At 9am, Joey went out to begin his day by starting the fork lift truck. When he turned the ignition on there was a deafening explosion that rocked the surrounding buildings.  Joey was in an enclosed, small metal building, and the blast lit him on fire and burned 40% of his body with 2nd and 3rd degree burns.  Other employees assisted him and put out the blaze, but not until Joey was badly burned.  Joey was air lifted to JMS Augusta Burn Center where he remains in critical condition.
My hope is that people could reach out with prayers and financial support for Joey and Nikki Hyatt.  He is expected to remain at the JMS Burn Center for at least 6 weeks where he will go through extensive skin grafts.  This procedure is long and painful. Since both Nikki and Joey's family will have to be at the burn center in Augusta for the foreseeable future, we want to help them with any outstanding costs that might arise due to this situation. In turn, we ask for any financial support you might be able to give at the moment. You can donate to this page.
Thank You in advance for your prayers and any donations.
