Help Support David’s Journey
David recently suffered a life-changing spinal cord injury from an ATV accident. His C4 and C6-T1 vertebrae were fractured and his spinal cord was compressed. He is now a quadriplegic. He has begun rehab in Madison, WI and is already making great progress. However, as you can imagine, the care he needs is very expensive, which is why we need your help.

Here it is July of 2020. David has been a SCI survivor for 3.5 years already. Thanks to all of your support. From the donations we were able to get the adaptations in a van for David to drive. We have been able to pay for medical supplies and caregivers.
David had 3 surgeries last summer (2019). He had part of his colon removed due to an infection that started because of a hole in the lower part of his colon. This infection became pretty bad and spread into his tailbone. The last surgery he had, the surgeon opened up and debride the area and removed his tailbone. Today David still has a wound vac to try and heal that area.
Earlier this summer he became septic and was hospitalized due to other infections. He is quite the fighter.
Thank you for your continued support of our family. We appreciate all of you and your prayers.

David is presently in Omaha, NE at QLI receiving some great PT and OT. The people there are outstanding and helping him to achieve some vertical status which he has not had much of yet. This should lead him to being able to be upright for part of everyday. Eventually he may be able to have a wheelchair that could stand him up someday.
He is also working harder at getting stronger by lifting weights and strengthening that core strength.
