Saturday, October 19th, Jacob was driving through rain/sleet/hail to a construction project near Levering when he lost control of his vehicle. The vehicle rolled to its side and struck a tree. Jacob suffered 13 broken ribs, a punctured lung and spinal cord injury with lower body paralysis from 3 crushed vertebrae. He underwent surgery that same day to stabilize his spine. The surgeon installed two rods into his back to repair the damage and relieve the pressure on the spinal cord. Due to the extent of his injuries, we were told he would have a 10% chance of walking again. Jacob will be transferred to the Rehabilitation Institute of Michigan at Detroit Medical Center to begin the recovery and rehabilitation process. Although insurance is covering his basic medical expenses, there is no coverage for progressive treatments, lodging and transportation. Jacob’s strength and positive attitude are inspiring and will serve him well on his quest to recover and hopefully walk again. Thank you for your support!
