On February 10th, 2018, Aaron was in a horrific car accident in Southern Mississippi on his way to Mardi Gras (naturally, he loves New Orleans!). He was stat flighted to a trauma hospital in Hattiesburg, MS where he is currently in the ICU in critical condition. Aaron suffered a brain bleed, collapsed lung, a skull fracture, a broken shoulder and collarbone, multiple broken ribs resulting in a "flail chest", and is now battling the repercussions of those injuries with kidney issues and other variables.
It's true that the world shifts on its axis when you watch someone you love dearly claw their way back to life, and then dismantle that by truly exemplifying their strength and will to live. Aaron will have a difficult and tumultuous road ahead. But he is NOT giving up. In true Aaron fashion, he's taken his prognosis and surpassed where anyone thought he'd be. His zeal for life is simply bionic, and he continues to surprise his medical staff and all his loved ones.
Now, Aaron needs your help. Beyond his astronomical medical bills, he has extensive rehab ahead and he will not be able to work for the foreseeable future. Please help us help this exemplary human, just as he would do for us. We've placed this amount at a very small fraction of what he will currently owe, and will shift the goal as we raise more funds. Thank you all and keep the good vibes coming. He can feel them! Aaron Thomas, thank you for being a friend to all of us. It's our turn to take care of you.
A note to campaign contributors: Eric Casanova, Aaron's former partner and dear friend, will be obtaining the money from this fundraiser to establish a secure account for Aaron to use as he needs. Thank you all so much.
