BENEFITING: GOLD FOUNDATION

THE STORY:

PLEASE help us raise money for Scott O'Brien who was recently paralyzed in a terrible accident.

Why should you donate?  Because you can. Because if you don't, who will? Because your donation will not only provide the financial support Scott needs, but will send a great big virtual hug to Scott, Nancy, Pete and Scott's devoted brother Andrew.

The Story:

It was May 13th, a beautiful spring day.  A day like any other. Fun loving, nineteen year old Scott O'Brien went for a swim with some friends at Rocky Neck State Park in Connecticut.

Then his parent's, Nancy and Pete O'Brien got the call. The one every parent dreads. Their  son just had a horrible accident. He was in critical condition.

For many weeks it was touch and go. Scott fought to live. But tragically, this athletic young man who loves the outdoors, sports, snowboarding and skateboarding is now paralyzed from the chest down.  He has some use of his arms, but not of his hands. This is a particular tragedy since like his Dad, Scott is a gifted artist.

Scott is spent months in a rehabilitation hospital. The situation is was a bad as you can imagine. Each day was a physical and emotional challenge beyond compare.

SCOTT HAS RETURNED HOME.

The expenses of caring for Scott at home will be astronomical and ongoing. Insurance won't begin to cover it. His mom, Nancy is an school counselor and his Dad Pete is an artist. Like most people, there is no way they can financially deal with something this catastrophic without help. Their immediate needs include renovating their home to accomodate Scott. And they need a van to transport him to appointments. Of course, there will continue to be ongoing expenses associated with specialized care and adaptive equipment that Scott will need.

Please make a donation right now. Don't wait. I know your heart goes out to Scott but please send your money as well.

A special note to all the friends of the O'Brien family: Join the Scott O'Brien One Love Fundraising Team by clicking on the Join the Team link. Tell your friends why they should donate and help this great family. The more we spread this around the more money we can raise.
