Austin's Army

On May 30th Austin Aanrud was involved in a serious car accident and sustained critical injuries. Austin underwent emergency brain surgery to stop the bleeding and swelling of his brain,  and has  had two surgeries to stabilize a broken femur. Austin remains in critical condition on a ventilator in ICU.
Austin is the beloved son of a single mom, Annie, and a wonderful loving and  supportive brother to his sister Michelle.  He is a hard-working loyal member of local 399 and loves working on cars and dirt bikes.

In addition to your prayers, Austin will need a a lot of help as he works hard to recover. It is impossible to imagine the costs that will be involved in Austin's recovery as he is being evaluated daily for progress. His mom is on a leave from work and needs to maintain her health insurance since Austin is carried on her insurance. Any financial assistance is greatly appreciated.
