Support The Haywood Family

As many of you already know, Shawn Haywood was in a terrible 4 wheeler accident this past Sunday. He was air lifted to Arnold Palmer Hospital in Orlando where he has been in PICU. The result was fractured T3, T6, T7, and T10 vertebrae, a ruptured spleen, a damaged kidney, and bruised lungs. Doctors are trying to avoid surgery for the removal of his spleen and kidney; however, the option remains on the table as a last resort. Although he is improving daily, the process is slow-going. As of this writing, his doctors are hoping to have him home by Christmas.

Needless to say, the medical expenses for the family are going to be astronomical. This campaign has been started to help his family with the costs of the hospital stay, medications, medical equipment, general expenses resulting from a loss of work for his parents, and they do not have health insurance. Even if he is home for Christmas, there will be many follow-up doctor visits in the future.

Shawn plays lacrosse at Sebastian River HS, has played many baseball games at the Barber Fields, loves to camp and fish, and is a third generation Fellsmere resident.

Any and all donations will be greatly appreciated by the family. Thank you for your prayers and support!
