Last night on his way in to work our friend Garrett was the victim of a hit and run. The accident resulted in a serious leg injury and Garrett is now fighting to keep his foot.  

He is a young Southern California law enforcement officer with roughly 4 years on the job, he also has a girlfriend of several years and is eager to get back to work and normal life.

Please help us in taking some of the financial pressure off of him during this already difficult time so he can focus on recovering. 

Thank you!

An update from Garrett (posted 8/21/18):

So my main doc just came in and told me they had their meeting and my foot doesn't look that good. He said that I will need muscle transplants and they will need to reconstruct my foot and after that I will never be able to run again. Which means no work and no playing with kids when I have them. So basically I have a choice to make. To I keep my foot and never do anything again except walk or do I get a prosthetic and live a normal life with some phantom pains. So I decided to amputate it and the surgery is tomorrow afternoon

Garrett had his second surgery yesterday, which gave some good news! The likelihood of him being able to keep his foot is higher than they originally thought. He still has two surgeries ahead of him this week to find out more.

We genuinely appreciate all of the donations and love you’ve shared here for Garrett. Please keep sharing!

Picture of him after his surgery yesterday is below... it includes his foot so just a warning if you’re squeamish!
