Car for the Metevier's Tragedy

$1,645 of $15,000 goal

Raised by 17 people in 17 months
Created September 12, 2017
My best friend, Ben Metevier, and his two sons, Jack (8, left) and Owen (5, right) were evacuating Tampa last Saturday when they were struck by a pickup truck which has left both boys with skull fractures, Jack with some brain bleeding and Owen in a coma. Things are very touch and go at the moment, especially with Owen, and there are three specific immediate needs that the family has:


1. Massive prayer is needed that Owen will wake up and that there will be minimal to no brain damage for both boys. 

2. Prayer and resources to help with the medical expenses. 

3. Prayer and a vehicle donation. The car they were driving was the only vehicle they had. 


The goal of this campaign is to raise enough money for them to buy a safe, reliable vehicle by the time the boys are eventually discharged (roughly by September 26th).

Any update from Ben on how the kids are doing:

"Jack - Jack is doing good, he is such a fighter. Jack was awake right after the crash and saw some pretty disturbing things. Even so he has been so patient and understanding. The front of his face is swollen today and he can barely see. He will probably be discharged tonight or maybe tomorrow. Total recovery from home may take some time.
Owen - My little owee is still not awake. after the crash he was knocked out. He has responded off and on to us with thumbs up and moving his toes. Basically we are waiting for him to wake up and then we will start to see how his brain damage has affected him. He has just a little swelling in a part of his brain.
The wreck- we were on the interstate and traffic came to a sudden stop, I stopped and the person behind me did not and hit us very hard. Honestly I feel lucky that we have all survived and the road to recovery is starting to look clearer. Again I cant thank everyone enough for all that your doing.
Love you all."
