Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ:
Please accept this donation request on behalf of Michael Owens, a 28-year old victim of a tragic car accident on Wednesday, March 6, 2013. While Michael was repairing a flat tire, he was hit by another vehicle, resulting in the loss of both legs. He has undergone multiple surgeries, and was recently moved from the Trauma Center to an area where he will begin physical therapy in preparation for the required prosthesis. He will be at the Med Hospital in Memphis for an undetermined period of time.
I am Michael’s aunt, Tina Martin. I will continue to assist Michael in every way possible, but the medical costs are already staggering. As stated, he has been in the hospital for over a month, and will need equipment when he returns home (wheelchair, ramp, tub transfer apparatus, etc.); he will also require intense physical therapy twice a day for some time.
Michael has an amazing spirit, and has remained close to the Lord during this very difficult time. He is a member of New Directions Church in Memphis, and has relied on the spirituality with which he has been blessed. He continues to praise the Lord for sparing his life, and has stated repeatedly that God has a greater purpose for him.
I am requesting any assistance you can give. Any contribution will solely be used for Michael Owens’ medical costs and any other personal need items.
“For God is not unjust so as to overlook your work and the love that you have shown for his name in serving the saints, as you still do."- Hebrews 6:10
Thank you in advance for your consideration of this request.
