Help Him Dance Again

Everyone that knows my brother Sam knows how great of a guy he is. Loving father, son, friend and brother. Sam just started a new job last week. He went out to dinner this past Friday to celebrate. On this way home, he was struck by a drunk driver, driving on the wrong side of the road. He was hit so hard that the car hit a tree and the car rolled over. The fire department had to take him out with the jaws of life. At the scene he wasn't able to feel his arms or legs, while the drunk driver was out of his car walking. He was arrested at the scene, but now he’s out on bail. While my brother is in ICU.51547026_1601362607193783_r.jpeg
Sam started to feel his legs and arms within a few hours after getting to the hospital. The doctors are saying this was a miracle. Unfortunately, he has severe spinal damage. His 1st surgery was Sunday, Sep 27 which they had to reconstruct the entire cervical portion of his spine. He has severe damage to his lower spine and
also has fractured ribs. Once he is out of ICU he will have to endure a long rehabilitation process. Most likely with future spinal surgeries to help him walk again. I believe that with everyone's prayers, support and love he will be able to walk and hopefully even dance again. Since he had just started a new job, Sam will have no income during this time. I have been bombarded with texts, calls, and emails all showing support and love for my brother. That lead me to start this gofundme account. Whatever you can donate will be appreciated. He's everyone big loving teddy bear and we need to get him back. Thank you and please continue to pray for him. Much love to everyone.
