Help Victor walk again

$3,365 of $25,000 goal

Raised by 53 people in 1 month
On April 15th, Victor Mattson was in a tragic accident when a van towing a trailer was impatient to make a left turn across oncoming traffic.  He tried to turn in front of the truck that was in front of Victor causing the truck to swerve to avoid being hit.  He looked in his rear view mirror because he knew there was no way for Victor to stop in time. And as the trailer cut in front of him, he hit it.  Victor’s motorcycle was beyond totaled and he is alive only by the grace of God.  He almost bled to death as his leg was almost amputated at the scene.  He suffered catastrophic injuries that included traumatic brain injury, 2 broken hands, humerus, shoulder blade, jaw, multiple facial bones, sternum, 6 ribs, pelvic bones and the loss of all of his front bottom teeth and the loss of a leg. He was only recently removed from ICU but due to the traumatic brain injury he is not yet responsive.

Victor and his family have a long, hard road in front of them. Victor will need a prosthetic leg, bottom bridge (teeth), physical therapy, etc.... the medical bills are going to be astronomical.  Carlene will also need to find a different place to live as they currently live on a 3rd floor with no elevator.

When Victor becomes aware of his injuries he will be met with a life altering future and a long term recovery process with an unknown outcome. Every component of his life for the foreseeable future will be affected. 

Carlene and Victor will be grateful for any help as this will be a very long and difficult road. They are thankful for the outpouring of support and prayers and ask for continued prayers to help them overcome this extremely challenging time.

Almost 7 weeks.... baby steps and a long road ahead. A new leg is thousands of dollars...the brain takes a year to heal...loving someone means caring for them 24/7 and figuring out the rest as you go...

If you are able to donate any amount, it all adds up and every dollar is greatly appreciated. Many thanks to those who have donated and to everyone for the continued prayers and sharing! Count your blessings ❤️
