We are raising funds for expenses for 16-year-old Michael DeMain seriously injured in a car accident December 28th, 2017. From Dec 29 to Jan, 11 he had been in St. Mary's Hospital in Duluth, Minnesota. As of Jan. 12th, he is back on the LCO Reservation.

We are the family of 16-year-old Michael DeMain, of Lac Courte Oreilles, (Hayward, WI) who was seriously injured in a car accident on the evening of December 28th, 2017.

As of December 31, Michael had been through two different surgeries to stem internal bleeding, and to fuse/wire fractures on his pelvis and spine while he remained in a sedated medical coma in order to rest his body until January 2nd. Because of the accident he lost the use of one of his kidneys and will face a couple of months of rehabilitation.

Michael is a member of the Corbine/Barber clan of the Lac Courte Oreilles Chippewa tribe and the House/Morrison/Wheelock lineage on his Oneida side. After two weeks in the hospital Michael was released to go home where he is now recuperating, having been told to stay off his feet until the end of March in order to heal properly. There will be additional medical issues that Michael may face as he recuperates, fights off infections, and begins to exercise his lower body and legs again.

We are asking for your continued support for all the unexpected medical, travel and other expenses that confront a family in these situations. Many of the initial donations were used to make sure that family members could travel and stay nearby while he was in Duluth. 

Your support is greatly appreciated.
