Support Seth Whitmer's Family

Donation protected
Do you know where you were on March 9th, 2021 at 3:46pm EST?  No?  Our family does.

A split second in time changed our lives forever.

While riding home from work on his motorcycle, Seth was involved in a life threatening accident.  He was immediately identified as a trauma alert patient and was rushed to Halifax Health Medical Center.  Seth remains in critical condition - with multiple surgeries still to come to repair his broken legs, pelvis, wrists and jaw.  As we are still in the critical stages of recovery, more injuries may be discovered as the days go on.

What about spinal cord damage, you ask? None so far! He has even shown early signs of reflexes in his toes reinforcing this -- thank goodness for helmets!

Seth is a father, a son, a husband, a brother, a cousin, a nephew, a grandchild, and he is so very loved by us all.  We know that his first priority would be to ensure his children and his wife are provided for, and with the significant injuries he has endured, it is unlikely he will be cleared to return to work for many, many months

‘What is broken can be mended, what hurts can be healed, and no matter how dark it gets, the sun is going to rise again.’  Today feels dark, but we know Seth is strong. He will continue to overcome whatever is thrown at him.

Our family has had an outpouring of support from our friends and family asking how they can support financially, or otherwise, and we are so touched by this thought.  

While he has medical benefits through the VA from his time served in the Army, he does not have short term disability or accident coverage to help with the expenses outside of medical.  Since the full extent of his injuries are unknown still and the path to recovery will be long, this will be the largest financial burden to his young family.

All money will be used to lessen the stress on Seth’s wife while she manages the day to day expenses of a family of four on her own in the coming months.

Anything raised over and above this will be placed in an education fund specifically for Seth’s two young children.

From our family to yours, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your love, support and positive thoughts during this stormy time.
