Workman's Medical Fund

$42,625 of $50k goal

Karen Workman  PROVO, UT
Jared Workman waited for Audrey, his best friend for several years, to complete her LDS mission in the Philippines and proposed to her the weekend she came home in February. They were going to get married and sealed together for time and all eternity in the Salt Lake temple this Friday, May 1st, 2015. Unfortunately, Jared suffered a horrible accident on Saturday, April 25. 

Jared's skull was fractured by a kick to the head from a horse. He had immediate surgery for internal hemorrhaging but suffered a harmful injury to a large portion of his brain. He was in a coma but has now been transfered to a specialty hospital and is on his way to recovery.

Please help us raise money to pay for Jared's medical needs. 

Jared is 29 years old and a lifelong South Florida native. He obtained his Eagle Scout, graduated from early morning seminary in high school as a master scriptorian and served his mission in Pocatello, Idaho. Jared is currently enrolled in a business strategy program at Brigham Young University.

All donations will go towards therapy and rehab equipment..

Jared had his right ankle casted today to try and force it to straighten. He needs prayers that his muscles, particularly his hamstrings, but also hips and feet, will relax and not be so spastic. He needs brain healing. Thank you friends and family, for all your love and support! Jared and Audrey will marry in April. Nothing will stop this couple, they are awesome!

Jared decided to forgo the baclofen pump that we were considering having surgically implanted yesterday. He has begun weaning off the muscle relaxers for more energy and we are hoping to be approved for Botox treatment to battle the resultant spasticity. He has begun water therapy and we're hoping his right ankle will straighten out and be able to hold his weight.

Jared's ankle surgery was a success! He has been standing and even took a few supported steps! Our next hurdle is a surgically implanted baclofen pump on Feb 1. It's a big step and we need lots of prayers about whether or not to go forward with it. More importantly we need approval for funding botox, a very expensive yet important tool to fight jareds spasticity from the injury. Thank you all so much for your donations to help him get back on his feet. We love you all!
