Zaden Maddux needs your help

Imagine that you and your two young sons are driving home after a long day. You are taking a winding highway with many blind curves. While going around one of those curves you see a vehicle in your lane and they can't move over because they were trying to pass 4 cars at once. No time to react. They hit you head on. All you can think about are your two sons in the back seat. You turn around and see one there in the seat. The other is twisted and contorted in unnatural ways, pinned between the seats.  He and the passenger from the other car are airlifted to the hospital. This is where you find out the guy driving th other car was drunk.
This is an actual story and the boys name is Zaden. He is 9 years old. He has 4 sattered vertebrae, every muscle and tendon that holds the head on snapped and is head was only attached by his spine. He had internal bleeding and injured organs. Doctors only gave him a 40 percent chance of living and 20 percent chance of walking.
Zaden has now had 2 surgeries on his spleen and kidney and to stop the internal bleeding.  He has approximately 9 more surgeries to go before this is over. He is in a back and abdominal cast and a ridgid neck brace that he will have to wear for about 6 months. He is very scared and confused. He cries everyday from the pain he is in. All his parents can do right now is sit with him and be there for him. 
As it turns out, the drunk driver did NOT have insurance. This means all medical bills will have to be paid by the family. $26000 is what the bill is currently at. Any help at all will greatly be appreciated.
