On December 31st, 2018, Jeremie Dunlap was burning garbage in their firepit when the gas can caught on fire, exploded and caught he and his clothing on fire. He was taken by ambulance to Sacred Heart hospital in Spokane to assess his burn injuries. He was quickly flown to Harborview Medical Center’s burn unit in Seattle  for treatment.


He has 2nd degree burns on 35% of his body and a 3rd degree burn on his right arm that will most likely need skin graft surgery. His face has what is equal to a really bad sunburn as well. He is in a lot of pain and will need many therapies and treatments in his future. He will be at Harborview for AT LEAST 3 more weeks.  

The Dunlap’s are self employed and have had to temporarily close their business due to the accident. There is no paid sick leave or employee assistance funds for them to draw from in their time of need. Tammy is the caregiver for their oldest son, Cameron, who has MD and requires 24/7care; she therefore cannot run the business while Jeremie is recovering.

Family and friends are hoping to raise money to help with Jeremie’s medical bills and help with the family's living expenses while Jeremie recovers from this tragic accident.  Thank you in advance for anything you can do.

Tammy spoke with Jeremie this morning and said he is still in a lot of pain so having to continue on pain meds. We all know those are no fun and create other issues. He was able to get up and walk a little yesterday to wound care with the help of a couple nurses. It was a very slow and painful walk. Poor guy. He is pretty frustrated because they still are not letting him move his right arm yet and the surgery has caused a lot of bleeding on his legs so more dressing changes each day. He is very anxious to get moving around because he knows when he can do that on his own they will start looking at when can come home. Keep in mind he has been in the hospital since 12/31, please pray he starts healing and gets more mobile soon.


Your continued thoughts, prays and donations are very much appreciated.

Tammy got a call from the doctor who did Jeremie's surgery and he said everything went well and that Jeremie did good. It was about a 4 hour surgery, they had to do both of his calves, which the donor skin for that came from thin layers of skin from his thighs. He had to do the entire right forearm, back of the right arm/shoulder and small part of his back, he removed the damaged sections and then sutured it together with no extra donor skin from what Tammy was told and understand. Earlier before the surgery they told him he will have immobilizing boots on the legs and arm, but did not say for how long. Please pray for a smooth recovery for him.

Thanks for all the continuing thoughts, prayers and donations....everyone has been so kind and generous.

1-15-2019 Jeremie Update
Tammy talked to Jeremie a few hours after his debridement he had done this afternoon, he was feeling pretty upset. He will have 2 skin grafts for sure, possibly 3. The skin graft surgery is tomorrow about 2pm and done maybe about 6pm so I will probably not hear back from him until Thursday morning. It typically takes about a week and a half to recovery from those if all goes well. He is probably still looking at least another 2 weeks there after the surgeries tomorrow before he can come home. He will still have outpatient therapies once back home. We don't know how much long his recovery will be or when he can return to work.

Please keep him in your thoughts and prayers tomorrow while he undergoes the skin graft surgeries tomorrow. And give him patience to hang in there a while longer.... he really wants to come home.

Thanks again for all your thought, prayers and continued support it's very much appreciated.

1-12-2019 Update W. Jeremie Dunlap
Not a big update today but Michael (his youngest son, shown in the latest photo) did get to go over today to see him with David Reis and Tanner. One of my aunts, Barbara Norton that lives over there stopped in as well. Jeremie said it was great seeing everybody and that he really appreciated them doing that. Today he just did his normal routine they have him on for the daily treatments, pt and stuff. He called me about 5pm to see how things were here and to check on our little Pat dog who had to go to the vet, who is doing very well today. He did not talk long though he was obviously worn out-Hopefully he did get some much needed rest.

THANK YOU for your thoughts, prayers and support!
