The Forbes Family

On Thursday, November 2nd, Jim Forbes suffered extensive spinal cord damage when he was involved in a traffic accident. He underwent spinal cord surgery the following morning to relieve some of the spinal cord pressure. On November 7th, Jim was accepted as a candidate to go to the Shepard Center in Atlanta. The Shepard Center is top notch treatment facility that specializes in rehabilitation of patients with spinal cord injuries and considered one of the best in the nation.  Kristy Forbes, Jim's wife, is a teacher at Buckhorn Middle School. I am asking that you do what you can to help this amazing family get through this difficult time. Please keep them in your prayers constantly and give what you can to help!
