Airman's Family Needs Help
By Chris Short 09 Nov 2006 - 1121
A terrible event has struck a family of one of our nation's Airmen. An Airman First Class from my unit has an eleven year old brother who was severely injured when he was hit by a garbage truck.
The eleven year old brother had to have part of his liver removed, doctors are trying to repair his broken pelvic bone, and his right arm had to be amputated just below the shoulder. As of yesterday morning, he had undergone six surgeries and doctors don't know how many more are needed.
Our Airman is currently in North Carolina helping her family the best she can. I'm here in Colorado helping her other family (US Air Force Family) help her family.
The father is a proud veteran who is covered by TRICARE for most of the medical needs. However, at this time the family has to come up with over $6,000 to cover the medical bills that TRICARE will not cover. This is an incredible burden on our Airman and her family.
I'm asking that you open your wallets and see if you can help. Please use the donate link below if you can spare a few dollars to help out. I will be handing that money to another Staff Sergeant who is heading up the collection here in my squadron.
Every bit helps.
