Myles Anderson, son of Payton & Andrea Anderson and Jeremy & Amanda Dale, was hit by a drunk motorcyclist while crossing the street on Sunday, October 30 in San Diego, California, where he is stationed as a Marine.
He was out with friends when the driver lost control of his Harley, ultimately hitting Myles and a sitting Prius. Myles received life-sustaining CPR by a fellow marine until the arrival of EMS, where he was transferred to the trauma center at US San Diego Medical Center.
His injuries are critical and include a compound fracture of his tibia and fibula on his lower left leg, injured lungs, multiple facial fractures, and a brain injury, the severity of which is still unknown until he wakes from his coma.
While he is stable, this is wreaking emotional and unanticipated financial burden on his family. Natives to Georgia, his family is staying long-term in California as Myles slowly recovers from the life-saving treatments of their son. To be with their son, the family is traveling back and forth from Georgia to California, missing work, and having to purchase daily necessities like food and housing.
Should you be willing and able, we ask that you help the Andersons and the Dales as they trek through this challenging time of their lives, with many answers left unknown regarding their son's recovery.
