Craig and Kathy were hit head-on by a driver who crossed the median on highway 56. Their financial future is in doubt, our heart-felt thanks and deep appreciation for any donation, big or small! More ...

Married couple of 44 years separated in accident, let's get them back together again!

We are trying to raise enough money to cover their mortgage for the rest of 2014 so they can eventually return to their own home, they just want to get back to their regular life!

Life changed for the Nyberg's when a wrong way driver crossed the 56 freeway into their lane.  Their car collapsed around them, it took over an hour to cut them out.  Kathy was life flighted and Craig was taken by ambulance, that is the last time they have seen each other.  Kathy has over 25 broken bones including a vertebra, collarbone, left arm, wrist and fingers, pelvis, femur, kneecaps, fibula, both ankles and feet, bad cuts and brusies from head to toe.  She is on her 5th surgery today which will be a 7 hour procedure to repair her feet and ankles. Doctors are estimating that she will not be able to walk for several months.  It is amazing that Kathy survived at all, but due to her active lifestyle and great physical strength (have you seen her biceps?) she is making huge strides and is wanting to get back to teaching by next fall.  

Craig has several broken bones including 7 ribs, pelvis/hip, fibula and a severe hand fracture. He is making huge strides, but doctors are estimating he won't be walking for months and are unsure if he will be able to return to the same work as before. He is currently in a rehab facility working to regain his mobility.

We all hope the young girl is OK, but are still waiting to hear. We will do all we can, but if you want to help the Nyberg's we are thankful for anything you wish to give. We want to help them get back!
