Since the shooting, Tyler has suffered a stroke, a brain bleed and swelling. He is currently sedated and being monitored round-the-clock by a nationally recognized medical team dedicated to emergency trauma care. The way Tyler's body responds in the next 24-48 hours will be critical in determining his long term prognosis. Please continue to contend and pray for Tyler. Pray specifically for the swelling in his brain to go down, vision in his eye and a full recovery from his stroke.
Since he is still in critical condition, we have yet to fully understand what the financial impact all of this will mean for him, his wife and two children, Bennett and Knox. In addition to the extensive medical bills this will incur, Tyler and Abby will be remaining in Minnesota to be close with family for a while, with Tyler unable to work. Like many of us, his family relies on steady income.
The weeks and months ahead will certainly be challenging both emotionally and financially. We first ask for prayers for Tyler and his recovery. Additionally, we would like to help ease some of the financial burden and show the King family how many people love and support them. With so many unknowns, let's rally around Tyler to financially support him and his family. Any level of support will be greatly appreciated.
Note: 100% of the proceeds collected will go directly to the King Family to defray financial burdens to come.
