Please pray for Mitchell Reidy, an 18-year-old FAU student who was the victim of a hit-and-run while walking back to campus the evening of February 24, 2017. Mitchell sustained a life-threatening blow to the head and is in critical, but stable condition at a hospital in Delray Beach. His family is asking for prayers.  His mother, Lauren, says, "I love you all for lifting us up and asking for healing and recovery for this sweet, wonderful, smart boy who is loved by all who know him."

The Reidys are wonderful, kind people well-loved in our community; please join me in supporting them during this extremely painful time. We have faith that Mitchell  can make a complete recovery, but there are certain to be hefty medical bills for his care and recovery. Mitchell's family also needs help. They are holding vigil at his bedside, away from their home and their jobs. The family needs immediate help with day to day expenses such as accomodations and food.

Your donations will help relieve the family of financial worries during this difficult time, and allow them to focus on getting their sweet boy better.

We would love to reach our goal this week--please give any amount you can.

Thank you and may God bless Mitchell and his family.

Many of you have been following Mitchell's progress through reading his mother's heartfelt daily updates on her Facebook page or via Caring Bridge. For those of you in need of an update, Mitchell is finally beginning to "wake up" after being unconscious for 3 weeks. On Monday morning, Mitchell will be transported to Atlanta by med flight, where he will begin the next phase of his recovery at one of the best rehabilitation facilities in the South. Mitchell's trip to Atlanta is being fully funded by your generous donations to his Go Fund Me page ( https://www.gofundme.com/mitchellreidy?u=13106982). This next step of his journey is, thank God, full of hope and promise, but the medical bills are accumulating, as is time away from home and work for his parents. Please continue to share Mitchell's Go Fund Me page to at least help ease some of the Reidy's financial worries as they continue to focus on their precious son's recovery. Please also continue to lift them all up in prayer. Thank you, friends!

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for the tremendous outpouring of support for our dear friends and their son. It's now been 10 days since the accident, and though still sedated, Mitchell is showing signs of improvement, thank God! The road ahead is likely to be a long one, but his brain swelling is reducing and other vital numbers are beginning to fall into line, and the doctors have begun talking about the next steps. The Reidys are hearing encouraging words and discussions of positive outcomes, but a lengthy stay in the Trauma ICU is likely, followed by more time in Step Down care and then even more time in rehab. At this point, it's all estimates and speculation, but it all seems to mean he's healing! We've increased our fundraising goal as the Reidys face mounting medical bills and extended time away from their home and jobs as they support their boy through his recovery. Thank you again for your continued prayers and support. Every little bit helps so much!
