Jeff Moxham or "Mox" as most know him by; friend, brother, father, son, one of the most giving individuals we have ever known, is now in need of your help. On January 14th, Jeff was severely injured. He was leaving the garage where he works when the 14 x 14 industrial garage door let loose, fell, and hit Jeff. Jeff was pinned under the door. A Good Samaritan nearby, Herb Jacobs, came to Jeffs aid, in what could only be explained as super strength, with one hand lifted the massive door and with the other slid Jeff out from under it. The falling door severely broke and dislocated Jeffs back. Jeff is recovering in the hospital at this time, while the full extent of the injuries are not yet known, Jeff has a long road to recovery ahead of him.

For those that don't already know Jeff, he is a devoted family man. He and his wife Tara have a daughter Hannah who attends Brookfield High School. He has 2 brothers and 2 sisters who live around the country and a mother in Arizona. He is a small business owner in Brookfield CT, he runs a landscaping and snow plowing business and has two employees. He has run this business for almost 30 years in Brookfield.

As stated, Jeff is one of the most giving people we have ever known. For the past 8 years Jeff has run a charity golf tournament in New Milford CT to benefit a friend of his named Keith James, who had ALS. Jeff participates every year on the Handy Dandy Man Ministry project to provide yard work for those in need. He is the first person to help when asked and even more importantly he goes above and beyond when he is not asked, he steps up and does for others when they are not able.

For those that know Jeff, they realize what is stated above is truly an understatement, just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to Jeff's giving and support of others.

Jeff and his family need your love, your thoughts, your prayers, and your support. As a small business owner Jeff will face challenges to run his business and provide for his family all while trying to recover from the injuries sustained.

Jeff would never ask for monetary support, but please take a moment to donate what ever you can, any amount helps. This money will be used for medical bills, rehab, recovery, and other expenses surrounding this random accident.

Thank you for your support, your thoughts and prayers.

It's hard to believe that 365 days ago Jeff's life, and that of his family, was forever altered. Jeff sustained a life threatening injury in a freak accident, leaving him a paraplegic with his life forever changed. Over the course of this past year, Jeff has found comfort in the incredible outpouring of support from his family and friends near and far. They say it's during times of trouble that you find out who your friends are - and Jeff found out just how wide and deep his true network of friends goes. He remains forever humbled by the generosity, kindness and compassion shown by so many. He continues to say "I don't know how I will ever repay.....". And that is Jeff, always thinking of someone else, how he can help someone else, and not be a burden to others. Even now, a year after his traumatic injury, he remains awed by the support he has received, and feels unworthy.

While Jeff's struggles are real, his constant pain is real, living with the pain and inconvenience (for lack of a better word) is real...there have been some bright spots. His daughter, the true apple of his eye, is readying for college. She has grown up, and is an intelligent, beautiful and tenacious young woman. In support of her dad, she spearheaded a local charity event this summer in honor of her father that proved to be a big success -- the apple doesn't fall far from the tree. Jeff is now driving! This has given Jeff back a tiny slice of independence and that's a good thing.

Jeff faces a long road ahead. Your continued support is beyond appreciated and needed. Keep it up and thank you. He has made it through the first year. It has been brutal. But YOU make his fight worth fighting.

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!

Today, of the many things I am thankful and grateful for, I am very thankful and grateful for each of you. It has been just over 10 months since Jeff was paralyzed. In that short time frame, there have been may emotional days, there has been ups and downs, there has been some laughter and there has been lots of crying.

On this Thanksgiving day, from our family to your family, thank you very much for all the thoughts and prayers, for all the love and support you have shown in so many ways. It is very much appreciated!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Jeff continues to find strength in his many friends who have visited, in their support, kind gestures and prayers. Jeff remains in the very beginning stages of figuring out the next phase of his life, and how to live as a paraplegic. One of the highlights for him is the project that has just begun to make his house handicap accessible. Please read the link to learn more. Being able to move back in his own home is extremely emotional and important for Jeff. He is extraordinarily grateful to the many that have donated their time, skills and financial resources to allow this project to come to fruition.
