Hi.  This fund raising effort is for Roberta and Matthew Creamer.  Matt and Roberta were helping a friend learn how to defend herself.  They had removed the magazine, but didn't realize a bullet remained in the gun. Roberta was accidentally shot in her wrist and chest area. She was care flighted to the hospital and underwent three hours of surgery.  She has a hairline fracture and had her artery repaired.  Thankfully, she is recovering now at home but will miss work for a long recovery.  This fund site will help with lost wages, potentially for Matthew as well as he cares for her, and also for medical bills.  The funds are needed as soon as you are able to donate.  This means more to Roberta and Matthew than you can imagine.  We will be so thankful if you can remember them financially and in your prayers.

It's been a while since we've posted an update. Roberta and Matt continue to make progress slowly, but neither are back to work since their surgeries. Roberta still has significant medical bills. Specifically, one bill is due mid-May for almost $1,000. Will you consider sending a gift? Every dollar counts! You can stay anonymous if you choose. Thank you!

The Creamers are still in need of your financial help. They have a double deductible since care crosses over 2015 and 2016. The careflight was SUPER expensive. Roberta is set to have surgery today to remove 2 pieces of shrapnel. She goes back for her wrist on Feb 4. Matthew will have shoulder surgery on Feb 5 and will be out of work for 6-8 weeks. We probably need more than $10K but let's get there first. Please pray and donate. And share!

Update from Roberta: "Got my stitches out today. Wound is healing. Found out the injury was worse than I thought and will take quite a while to heal. Lord willing all my movement will eventually return. I have to do OT to help. Bone is healing , am in a smaller brace. I have to see a surgeon for my chest wound...there is a piece of shrapnel left in it. I would really appreciate if you would Pray for no infection anywhere. The bad thing about getting injured just before the new year is now we have to pay the deductible twice. Life is full of challenges, I am just so thankful to be here so I can be challenged! God is good!"
