US$840.00Donated So Far
On July 24,2017 one of my dearest friends was involved in a horrific car accident. He was airlifted to University of Iowa hospital. Thirty minutes away from their home.
Will's injuries include a fractured ankle, dislocated hip, and a broken hip socket. The surgeon says they are bad fractures. He will be out of work for 3months or more with weeks of physical therapy. So you can imagine how financially difficult this will be. Not to mention medical costs, loss of a vehicle, court costs, gas to travel back and forth from the hospital to their home, and any other unexpected costs.
Will is a father of 5 boys(ages 10,8,5,3,&2) and a baby girl who is due any day now. Him and his wife,Jami, are ecstatic about having a baby girl together. Another exciting event in their lives is that they just bought their first home on July 7. So they haven't even made their first house payment!! Which is another reason we are asking for your help. Both Will and Jami work full time to support their large family. They have great jobs but income is still tight.
Will has been at his job for almost 5 years and we just don't know yet if he will be able to keep his job. We also appreciate any prayers, well wishes, good vibes, whatever it is you believe. :) He has family and friends all over the country so we can't be there with them but still want to help in some way. I figured this would be the easiest way. Any amount is welcome. I will post any updates we get. Thank you for any and all your support in advance!! 💛

UPDATE: Will is progressing through therapy very well! We're just waiting for insurance approval, and if all goes as planned he will be moved to an acute rehab program at Mercy Hospital in Cedar Rapids on Monday! He is determined to get better so he can get back home, and. . . . .

Jami--They say it takes a village, but sometimes you don't realize how big your village is until a crisis hits. My village is AMAZING! I am so appreciative of all the help/support we have received so far, and I don't feel like "thank you" is enough! Everything is really starting. . . . .

First and foremost a HUGE THANK YOU to everyone for your support!!! Keep the prayers and well wishes coming!😀👏😍The surgery was great. They repaired most of his hip. Doctors said he will need a hip replacement probably in the next couple of years. They were looking at his ankle and. . . . .

Jami--Will was taken back for surgery at 7:30, and it could last anywhere from 3-10 hours. He is pretty scared of the possible outcome, but all we can do (and are doing) is hope for the best! I will update after surgery! As for me, since many have been asking,. . . . .
