Blake was involved in an explosion, which led to life flight to the burn center in Las Vegas. This is a distance from St. George where the event took place His road to recovery will take at least 3 months minimum in the hospital, longer if he has to have surgeries to help the skin grow back from the 3rd degree burns. The family needs to spend time close to him, which means major travel expenses gas, motels meals, especially for his dad and mom who live in Ogden Utah. His Dad has not left Blake since the accident happened for more than a couple of hours a day to shower and catch a quick nap. Just to try to exist while Blake is still in the trauma burn unit is taking a toll on everyone’s checkbook. Blake just turned 23 and is a newlywed. His wonderful wife Taylor sleeps in a chair by his bed and is with him 80% of the time along with his father Mark Thatcher. Michelle, Marks wife had to go back to Utah for their job. She hopes to be able to be with Mark and Blake again very soon. So many have asked us how they can help or if there is anything that they could do. We are asking for donations for Blake and Taylor and for the family. While they need to be there until we know, Blake is past the critical point and recovering. The sacrifices are necessary but going to work in Utah while being with your son in Nevada is not one we have solved yet. There is not a place for family to stay while needing to be there... It would be beyond gratitude or words that we could ever express for your donations to help lighten the financial burden during this time. Anything will help. Prayers and gratitude will be with each of you for your assistance.
