Jacob is a 17-year-old boy who was catastrophically injured in a motorcycle accident on August 14th. He broke his right hip, his left shoulder, and his left foot. His hip was so severely injured that the ball of his femur was completely severed off from the femur and was fractured in 5 places.
Thankfully, Jacob’s injuries will heal but he will be wheelchair bound for the next 6 months and won’t fully recover until an additional year of therapy. Although money from the car insurance settlement is able to help cover some of Jacob’s costs, it is not enough to pay for everything. Jacob’s family lives in a house on a hill and has stairs leading up to the front door. It has been extremely difficult for Jacob to move in and out of the house in his wheelchair. To make this time a little easier on Jacob and his family, MPFIC has built a wheelchair ramp in front of his home.
Jacob and his family are so thankful for your donations! You are truly changing the lives on injured children with your continued support. To help MPFIC continue to assist children like Jacob, donate today!
