On December 7th, 2013 Hunter, a fifteen year old child, suffered a spinal cord injury during a wrestling match.  Initially he had no feeling from the chest down.  After five days in ICU he was transferred to The Shepherd Center in Atlanta, GA where he still remains in an outpatient day program. 

While we do not yet know what the future holds regarding Hunter and his recovery, we are hopeful that he will one day walk again.  And while we have medical insurance, unpaid expenses, modifications, equipment and continued rehab bills continue to stack up.  We're now on a quest to make sure Hunter has everything he needs to be independent and achieve his goals as he returns home. The costs involved in full recovery from Hunter's injury will be astronomical even with insurance.

As we are a family of faith, we ask first that you pray for peace, direction and healing for Hunter and everyone involved with his care.  We have a long road still ahead with many uncertainties and your thoughts and prayers alone mean a great deal to us.  Next, please continue to reach out to Hunter via calls, text, ,cards, letters, email and social media. The interactions that we have had breath life into us all especially Hunter because it motivates Hunter, gives him hope and keeps him connected to the world rather than feeling isolated. Please visit the Facebook page "Prayers for Hunter Garstin" for ways to reach out.  Last, we ask that you give what you can to assist financially. Remodels on Hunter's home are in full swing thanks to the generosity of John Montgomery with The Carbine Company as well as Watson's Flooring and The Restoration Group. Your donations will help the family continue to make needed adaptations and renovations as well provide Hunter with equipment that will maximize his rehab potential at home. Your continued prayers and support are helping us move through each and everyday. Our blessings are beyond measure. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for taking this journey with us!
