THE STORY:

Raheim Watson was in a severe car accident on September 22, 2015 on Route 288 in Richmond, Virginia as he was heading back into town from a job in Goochland. While the details of the accident are largely unknown, a State Trooper saw Raheim's SUV swerve off the road, hitting a support pole for a traffic sign head on. The crash resulted in the grass in the median to catch fire, which rapidly spread to the SUV. As flames quickly engulfed the vehicle, Raheim was trapped in the car, but the nearby police officer and another civilian were able to pull him from the car. After being flown by med-flight to VCU Medical Center it was then that we learned that Raheim had several broken bones in his lower legs, and that 20% of his body was covered in burns, much of them being 3rd degree. Raheim is currently in stable condition, but still remains in Critical Care at MCV.

Raheim has worked tirelessly over the last eighteen months to change the story for himself, his family, and his community through his small business. Let's not let all of that hard work go to waste! We have set a goal of $20,000 to help cover medicial, therapy, and living expenses for Raheim and his family during his recovery. He will be in critical care for the foreseeable future, and physical therapy will follow for several months. 

Thank you so much for your support, and please keep the Watson family in your thoughts and prayers!
