Andy was involved and severely injured in a car accident in the early morning hours of Saturday, October 26th, 2019; Andy was driving home from a friend’s home around 1:30 AM — when attempted to avoid hitting a deer, lost control of the vehicle and rolled end-over-end multiple times before coming to a rest on the roof of the vehicle. THANKFULLY, a nearby resident heard the crash and called 9-1-1, within minutes police responded to the scene. Andy was immediately extracted from the vehicle was air lifted to Regions Hospital with unknown injuries. Although Andy remained conscious during the accident and being removed from the vehicle; he underwent surgery to release pressure from budging discs and endured various injuries, including bleeding in his brain (which has since dissipated), a dislocated shoulder, several broken ribs and for the time being ... he is unable to move from the chest down (ALTHOUGH, as of yesterday, October 30th, Andy is able to move his right arm — KEEP YOUR WONDERFUL PRAYERS COMING).
Andy is blessed to be alive; yet he is facing a very long road of recovery ahead of him, as a single father, who works hard and he would literally give the shirt off of his back to help anyone in need; if you are able to donate, in an effort to help offset his medical expenses and/or care for his children and various expenses, it would be greatly appreciated. Please donate to the following GoFundMe page to donate immediately. https://www.gofundme.com/f/andy039s-army-of-angels?utm_source=customer&utm_medium=copy_link&utm_campaign=p_cp+share-sheet
