This is James' Medical Bill Fund. The funds will be used for James' medical costs and related expenses from surgery and physical therapy.

In June 2011 I realized that anything can happen to anyone and I was in a freak tragic accident that is beyond my comprehension. The result was a major fracture to my leg, shattered my ankle and foot and caused my foot to be disconnected. I quickly found out that if I ever wanted to walk again it would require surgery to put in plates and screws to reattach and ensure the stability of the joints. The surgery was successful in July 2011 and by September 2011 I was able to have the bandages removed. I have the image from the orthopedic doctor from after the surgery so I have provided this and can always provide more photos, but want to be appropriate here!

In October 2011 I began to attend physical therapy where after about 6 weeks began to hobble around on my leg, but the pain was and still is nearly unbearable at times. I unfortunately did not and still do not have insurance and I was able to attend for 2 months of Physical Therapy before the costs were too much and since have worked hard to keep up on my own with motion and joint movements to stretch the muscles and work to build them back up. I am able to walk short distances, but if I do too much I will begin to swell out of control and the pain become too much to handle. This has also affected my ability to work and I do hope that you will be kind to assist me as I now have over $30k in medical bills, can always provide copy of these should anyone request them and need to pay for ongoing care that is costly and unfortunately many doctors will not see you if you do not have insurance or cash in hand.

Thank you in advance for your help and I look forward to a future full of walking and perhaps even jogging or running again!
