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.

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!

We are so happy to share that the owner of the negligent tree company, Cory Howard, was arrested yesterday on multiple felony charges including theft and fraud. We look forward to our day in court and seeking justice for my Papa, George. His health continues to improve slowly, but he still has been unable to walk or come home.

Thank you to all that have donated. Our family is eternally grateful.

These past few weeks for George at the rehab facility have been stressful but productive. He is continuing to make great progress recently- he stood with a walker for 6 whole minutes! He couldn't even do 30 seconds last week. Thank you all for your continued support and prayers.

This past Friday, George was discharged from Metro to go to a rehab facility. Metro left a voicemail at my nana and papa's house, where construction is going on, that he was being discharged. They also gave the wrong address to the driver and took George to the wrong facility at first. After getting him settled in Euclid, they realized the mistake that happened and sent him to Sagamore Hills.
Now he is at a rehab/extended care facility in Sagamore Hills. He's still in pain and cannot bear weight on his broken leg for what looks like another 3 months. He is still recovering from his broken shoulder, hips, ribs, and spine. But his strength is slowly improving with simple PT exercises. There's a long road of recovery ahead.
