Update #3

10 months ago

Hi everyone, Don's daughter here. My apologies for the lack of updates but I've been sick. Don celebrated his birthday at home on February 1st with homemade German chocolate cake and a smile on his face.

He is recovering slowly but surely, but we are still very short on our goal! With just a little over a month left on our campaign, I invite you to please feel free to share this link with your friends and family or post it on your social media.

We are enormously grateful to all who have been so generous so far, many of whom are personal friends of mine that have never even met my dad. It's truly wonderful to know that there are so many people out there with so much love to give.

Thank you to everyone for helping us reach our goal of no medical debt left by the time he is healed!

 My almost 62 year old dad fell while working + suffered a skull fracture, broken neck, broken ribs + wrist. He will recover but is spending time in the ICU and needs 8-12 weeks in a neck brace and cast during which time he won't be able to work. He owns his own handyman/contracting company and three months without work is devastating to his income not to mention the hospital bills that insurance won't cover. (Luckily he is insured) This money will go straight to him to help him pay rent and buy food while he's recovering. Whatever is left will go towards paying his hospital bills. 

This campaign is being run by Don's daughter. I'm not very public about my family other than that I love them dearly. I have no siblings and my parents are divorced with neither having any family living within 2,000 miles. All they have is me. I am also self employed and I have no idea how else I can help him survive months of being unable to work. He has taken care of me selflessly my entire life and this is my way of trying to do the same. Thank you for taking the time to read this and share it, I hope I can repay your kindness in time.

Update #1

Don had surgery this morning on his wrist to insert a metal plate and two screws. He's hurting a bit but resting as best as he can and expects to go home tomorrow! The donations should be active again, for those that tried to get through and could not. Thank you!
