Help Dennis Rebuild His Life!
On May 26, 2021, while driving on a Raleigh city road, Dennis Freeland became the victim of a five-car accident caused by a cell phone distracted driver, travelling the opposite direction. While all other persons involved in the accident walked away all right, Dennis had to be unpinned from his vehicle by firemen and carried to WakeMed Hospital, NC with a partial C5-C6 spinal cord injury (paralysis from the chest down). After seven weeks in the ICU, he continues to need a ventilator, but has since been moved to an Acute Long Term Care Facility in Durham, NC to continue working toward breathing on his own. While he has some undirected gross motor function in his arms, his mid-term and long-term prognosis remain uncertain.

On Friday, the 13th of August, 2021, Dennis died, — like the date in which he died, his automobile accident, besides tragic, was a freak of nature, — from the fact that he was merely going 30 miles per hour, and that all others from the other 4 involved vehicles walked away in good form, to the fact that all of his vehicle’s airbags deployed except his own, and that Dennis sustained the maximum level of injuries outside of death, all of it, on a city road, no less!
If there is a good place hereafter, I am sure he will be in it. May his honesty, unassumingness, authenticity, and generosity serve as a good model to our own behavior.
Our sincere gratitude to you all.
