Medical Fund for George Homa

On Sunday, November 19th, my grandpa was severely injured in an "accident" caused by the negligent actions of "Alternative Property Management." My grandparents were having storm-damaged trees removed. The employees of the company who were there (Erik Herford, Jordan Adkins, Donald Cochran, Corey Keller, and James Maiolo) failed to clear a safe zone, cut any branches off the tree before they cut it down, and they failed to top it off.

While they had it roped off, my grandpa was expressing his concerns about this huge tree not falling properly - and it didn't.

This tree was over 100ft long- It crushed the house, demolished their screened in gazebo, and struck my grandpa. My mother and grandma were in the house when it fell it; my father was outside and barely missed being crushed.

My grandpa has been in the hospital since, with a broken patella, tibia, hips, ribs, scapula, and thoracic vertebrae fracture. He's been through hip and tibia surgery already, with more tibia surgery to come. Plus months of rehab.

The tree company has stopped returning our calls and is not insured for damages/accidents like this like they claimed. 

Thankfully my grandparent's home repairs are going to be covered by their homeowner's insurance; but their medical expenses for my grandfather's surgeries, hospital stay, life-flight, and expected rehabilitation and therapy costs are quickly overwhelming us.

I have set this up due the requests of generous and wonderful people wanting a way to donate and help our family. Any donation would help with the deductable cost for my grandfather's medical expenses for this year and next year, along with the rehab costs.

Thank you.

After weeks in the hospital and rehab from complications with pneumonia, George returned to staying with family again yesterday! He’s stronger than ever, walking a lot with his walker. He and Lois hope to be back home shortly. Repairs are still dragging on at their house.

George just got out of surgery for removing the mass of liquid/unknown mucus from his pleural cavity that was causing his shortness of breath. Additionally, aspiration of food into his lungs was noted during the surgery. It is not sure when this happened. It seems it did not occur immediately prior to or during the surgery. Prayers and well wishes are much appreciated.

Big changes-

Today, George left the nursing home/rehab facility and is now staying with family! His home is still not habitable, as the extensive damage from the "accident" is still being repaired. He is still 100% wheelchair bound and is not allowed to walk. Unfortunately, he is suffering from drop foot on his damaged leg. We pray that this improves and hope for the day that he can walk again, as he was so active prior to this "accident!"

Thank you all for your kind wishes/donations!
