*all funds will go into a PayPal accnt handled by Kyle's sister Laura Flicker* Kyle is 26 years old and lives in Coon Rapids, MN. He was struck by a vehicle in front of his house on the morning of 6/30/12 and dragged approximately 50 feet. The driver fled the scene. Despite his injuries he was able to get inside his house and call for help. Kyle was in surgery for several hours and doctors were able to piece together his left arm socket with a metal plate and ten screws. He is in stable condition but will endure a long road to recovery. The vehicle in the news story that was impounded was actually his vehicle, which was parked at his house, and was not involved in the incident. He actually has to pay to get his vehicle out of the impound lot. Kyle is currently being cared for in the Burn Unit of Hennepin County Medical Center (HCMC) in Minneapolis, MN. His injuries include: -Two broken ribs -Broken right clavicle -Broken left upper arm -Broken pelvis -Skinned to the bone on elbow and wrist -Skinned head with exposed skull My name is Matt Erickson and last night my longtime friend Kyle Flicker was the victim of a hit and run. What am I doing about it? Kyle is going to be facing some extra expenditures; works for a plastic manufacturing company and will likely not be able to return to work for some time. As a good friend I am starting this campaign to help him out during his recovery. The goal is set at $3000. I don't think this will cover all medical expenses. But I do think this will help him out, and at least alleviate some of the concern associated with a recovery of this type. Had this not been a hit and run, he would likely be in a better situation. My hope isn't to make him rich, just to help a friend who is down and needs a helping hand. I know I would appreciate it had I been in this situation. Even if the goal is not met, I want him to be able to pay his bills, rent, take care of his dog, etc... Kyle is a cool and unique individual. Even though he is severly injured, he is still in good spirits and altough his path to recovery will be tedious, I suspect he will recover with a good attitude. If anyone was deserving of a contribution, it would be him. I can surely attest that anyone's help will surely not go unnoticed. Why help? Because we are all human. And being human is what we are good at. Helping Kyle would be a selfless act and truly a notable deed. We all have had our moments when we were down and needed a little help, well Kyle is having one of those times. I want to show him that the combined forces of many people helping will actually make a difference. So let's help him out! Here's a few reasons I think you should help: -Even something small will help. -Modern medicine can only fix his wounds. -Dude, his head was skinned to his skull! -It feels good to help a friend in need. -Empathize, it would suck to be in this shape right now. How else can I help? If you can't contribute, that's ok. But here are some things you can do: -Spread the word! Tell others about this! -Send him a card! -Give him some kind or encouraging words! He is currently located at HCMC and here is the mailing address: Hennepin County Medical Center - Burn Unit - C/O Kyle J.
