Help Mark Stenberg recover from his broken leg

$1,625 of $5,000 goal

Raised by 22 people in 1 month
Mark Stenberg, 66,  has been our handyman and friend for 28 years.  Last week, while working for a past client of Golden Real Estate, he fell off a roof, 12 feet to a concrete driveway, severely breaking his right leg in two places. The picture shows how an external rod was screwed into his bones above and below the knee to keep his leg in traction for two weeks. Obviously, Mark is homebound, unable to earn a living, probalby for many weeks or even months. The agents at our brokerage as well as many of his clients are helping him with food and money to get by until he can resume earning a living. He has no savings.  If you know Mark, you know he's a special person, but he has no family -- just us!  We can't relieve his pain, but we can certainly help to ease the financial burden he is facing.  Thank you for contributing!  He would like to hear from you. If you need his phone number, call me.

Mark's stitches were removed on Wednesday and he's becoming more mobile, although he can't bear any weight on his right leg for several more months. He's getting cabin fever, as you might expect, and would like to get a wheelchair so he can get out and about. Unfortunately, where he lives (Golden Hours Motel on Colfax), there aren't good sidewalks, so he needs an all-terrain wheelchair! We haven't raised enough money to afford this luxury and are looking for a loan or donation of such an uncommon wheelchair. The cost of a new one is over $800! Your help is appreciated!

We have passed the half-way point of our original goal of $2,500, but it's clear that we'll need to increase that goal, since Mark's rent is $1,200 per month and he won't be able to work again for a minimum of 3 months -- the length of time he can't even bear weight on his broken leg. Thanks everyone for pitching in!

Mark's surgery on Tuesday to remove the exterior metal rod was successful. Here are the notes from the procedure: He had a bicondylar fracture of the right tibi. Tuesday's procedure was an open reduction and internal fixation at the tibial plateau. His bones were put together with plates and screws. He now has an immobilizer from the foot to the mid-thigh. Whew!
