Single father/Survivor/former volunteer fire fighter in need
Organized by: Crissy Stratton
"Izzy" Stratton is a single father who was involved in a serious car accident in 2009 and was in a medically induced coma for 5 weeks, he had many visible injuries and many within, when he was finally allowed to be brought out of the coma he was diagnosed with being blind, unable to walk and he had limited speech he suffered numerous injuries overall but the most difficult one to face was a tramatic brain injury which resulted in many deficits . He had to go through physical therapy, occupational therapy and speech therapy and see many speacialist.
At the time of the accident he was a hard working guy who was involved with many activities through our local Fire Dept. He was very passionate about being a volunteer fire fighter and giving back to our community. Izzy has had to overcome many hurdles throughout his recovery but one thing that has brought light into his life at a time of darkness was having a presious little girl name Emma.
He has had to have a few surgeries one on his shoulder, two on his eyes and a dental surgery, he is very lucky to have survived the accident at all. He has recovered most of his vision and now instead of being blind he just has low vision which a lot of us have, he does have to wear sunglasses to protect his eyes and he has speacial glasses that do help him when he is having a difficult day. Although he has made a number of achievements in his recovery he is legally premanently disabled.
We are trying to help Izzy continue to fight to recover and help him to recover some of the out of pocket expenses he has had over the years. He has an upcoming obstacle to overcome but we were recently were informed that we can not legally explain or discuss publicly on this fundraising site, so we are trying to avoid this being a problem since there has been some donations. Feel free to contact me with any further questions you may have about Izzys story or you can check out the other fundraising site.
Thank you for reading, sharing and donating to help Izzy.
