Mackenzie Jensen-facial reconstruct
$23,745 of $15,000 goal
We are looking to recover medical expenses in addition to his lost wages. Any funds in excess of these projected expenses will be donated to "Secondhand Hounds Rescue."
Hi there, I am so disheartened to hear about this horrible act of violence. I work in billing and coding for an oral surgery practice. With assaults resulting in jaw fractures, I often refer patients to a program funded by the state of MN called the Crime Victims Reparations Board. In my experience they are very helpful in paying medical and dental expenses and even lost wages. Here's the link! Best of luck in his recovery! https://dps.mn.gov/divisions/ojp/help-for-crime-victims/Pages/crime-victims-reparations.aspx
Saw this article on Huffington post that led me to this page: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/minnesota-bicyclists-cement-brick-attacks_55ca4294e4b0f1cbf1e67a3e?kvcommref=mostpopular I appreciate the intention to donate the excess money raised to charity, but I'd prefer my donation to go to Mackenzie. Just making up for lost wages and medical expenses doesn't account for the horrible injuries that he sustained from a random act of violence.
Anthony, thank you for your donation and support. Mackenzie's wages and our medical expenses will absolutely receive the majority of donations. We will donate some funds to the rescue being that we made that proclamation right off the bat. Due to the overwhelming response to this fundraising initiative we are looking at other ways to support Mackenzie on his path to becoming whole again. He is starting school this fall and our plan to allocate some funds for his tuition as well. Consider your requests granted. Best...
Met you today getting on the elevator (interpreter). if you want some sign language practice I'd be more than happy to lend a hand (bad pun). Seriously-I'd be more than happy to hang out and teach some practical signs. Best of luck with your surgery. Text me if you want 6512082209
Take care brother hope you get back on that bike soon.
