Support Mike Loy and his family

Mike Loy is a talented musician, and a father of three. When he is not working, he is taking on other projects to benefit his family, and add to the community of LeClaire , where his family lives. . Mike fell while restoring the ceiling of his old church in LeClaire  , and dropped  about 15 feet to the floor.

Everyone who knows him is so relieved he survived this fall, and will recover from this . But he  has suffered great injuries including a serious concussion,  two broken wrists, a broken jaw, skull fractures, multiple facial fractures, and a minor fracture in his spine.  He has undergone surgery to rebuild his jaw, and will have surgery on both wrists.  Many tests, x-rays, and CT scans have been required, and took two ambulance rides because he was transferred to Iowa City.  Once he leaves the hospital , he will also have regular follow up appointments  to make sure he is healing as expected.

Now Mike and his family are not only facing the long road to his physical recovery ahead, but  also the incredible expenses that go along with such a severe accident.  His wife Ally's full time job is being an amazing mother to their 3 children, so Mike is the sole income provider for the family.  He also does not have medical insurance to cover any of  the hospital bills. Since he  will not be able to get back to work for some time,  there will be no money coming in to support his family or to put towards the huge medical bills that are still being added to. 

Please help make sure this family's  main concern is not money, but is what is most important.....Mike's recovery.

Hi Everybody,
It's been a month since my accident, and I wanted to thank everybody from the bottom of my heart for their support, positive vibes, and help with my medical bills. It's been a painful recovery, but I'm happy to say that despite all that happened , I feel pretty good , and in a couple months I should be back to business as usual. It's been funny, and interesting having a liquid only diet. Begging my wife to get me a McDonald's milkshake everyday is weird, but I promised my Penny Serfs band mates that I'd lose some weight for our upcoming shows. As a blessing in disguise, I've lost 25 pounds. BOOM!!! I'm going a little stir crazy, but being around my family, my wife, and my children has really been a lucky break , and with all your support and well wishes, I've actually smiled more lately than before I was hurt. I've had cynical doubts about humanity , and I'm happy to say I'm humbled that I've finally seen there is so much good in the world. My family and I want to thank you all so much , and I will try to post more updates as soon as I can use my hands.
Much love to everyone,
Mike

Mike is my brother in law, which makes him my family. He has survived a terrible accident...thank goodness. But while he recovers he is unable to work, and that leaves my sister and Mike with no income and huge medical bills. Please help however you can, and share if you are willing. Help me to help my family.
