Orion is the son of Sandy, a woman I know who is dear to our community and many of my friends. Orion was struck by a car while walking his bike in a crosswalk on his way to school. The only thing that saved him was his helmet. He was in surgery for hours, his upper and lower left leg was broken, his upper right arm, his clavicle, several ribs, a couple of vertebrae in his neck and a possible hairline fracture in his pelvis. Amazingly he is expected to recover, however, it will be a long road. His mother is a single mom and the sole support of her 3 children at home. Her sister created this fund to help her afford the direct and indirect expenses of this emergency.
If you can help, even a little, please do! I know it looks like it’s fully funded, but as the creator points out, Orion being hospitalized will mean not only many bills, but also lost work and thus lost income for Sandy. This fund may have to cover a LOT of ground before this is over.
The more we can raise now, while there’s momentum, the more Sandy can focus on Orion and his siblings’ wellness instead of worrying where the rent money will come from.
