 SAINT GEORGE, UT
On April 7th, while on vacation with his family in St George, UT Jim Andersen suffered a serious fall. As a result, Jim and his family are facing significant unexpected medical expenses, and need some support to get back on track.

Jim makes everyone he meets laugh. He has always been the guy that jumps to help anyone in need. His generosity and warmth to others have been felt by all who know him. He is a much loved and admired father, favorite uncle, brother, neighbor and friend. Jim is a hard worker, and was just getting ready to start a new job on his return from vacation. Jim will be unable to work now, while he is rehabilitating after the fall.

Jim's wife, Jeanmarie, has been teaching our children in the Nebo school district for 12 years now. She is going to be stepping away from her classroom duties for a time to support Jim in his recovery.

This wonderful family really needs our help so that they can focus on recovery without the worry of financial difficulties that will come with this life changing accident. Your donation is of crucial importance to this family's peace of mind.

There is no way to know exactly what the medical expenses are going to be at this time, but they will be significant. If there are funds left over, they will be paid forward to another family facing a medical challenge. Thank you for your generosity.

After two months Jim was released from the hospital and inpatient therapy. He is improving daily! He is happy to be home and his family loves having him back! It is a HUGE adjustment for everyone and lots of work but they are so thankful to have him home. Jim's pets couldn't be more delighted!

Jim and Jeanmarie are so grateful for all of the generosity shown their family. Your contributions have helped with medical bills and the remodel of their bathroom to make it accessible, the purchase of a chair lift for the garage...(didn't have enough length space for a ramp) and a rolling shower chair... Thank you all for your help with these much needed items.

We are all so grateful for the support of our friends and family on Jim's behalf.

The next hurdle is the custom chair thatJim was was recently measured for. This chair will take about 60-90 days to be delivered . Home health is starting to come for the next month and then he will start out patient physical therapy.

Your continued prayers are so appreciated right now, and If you can help with a donation, that would be wonderful. Please share this on your page, so that we may reach others willing to help,

The Andersens are back together under one roof and are counting their blessings. Lets keep those blessings coming.

The last three weeks of recovery have had its ups and downs for Jim. He is back at rehab after an intermittent stay at Dixie Regional's main medical campus ( due to some internal complications). The Andersens are in hopes that he will be able to finish up his therapy at the IHC rehab center in Provo, they are hoping for a return home to Utah Valley. The care in St. George has been wonderful and Jim has become attached and very appreciative of his nurses Troy and Vicky, but the distance from his family has been much too difficult. His doctors have recommended that he be transferred, but along with that, there are traveling expenses for the family. Jim continues to show improvement and is looking much better. GO JIM, we are all praying for you and your safe and happy return home.
