Please help me raise money for my brother Chris. He needs a wheelchair and prosthetics and lots of prayers. Brother can you spare a dime?

Please let me introduce you to my brother Chris. On May 27,2012 his life was changed forever. My brother Chris was on his way to the town parade to honor his Father and all Veterans. This was something he enjoyed every year. So he rode his bike with thoughts about seeing friends at the parade then spending the afternoon with family. Chris was less then fifteen minutes from home when a young man crossed over the yellow line and hit my brother head on. Chris did get to spend the day with family but he did not know we were there praying for him. Chris was airlifted to Westchester Hospital and had lost an arm and leg at the scene. As family members traveled to be by his side we prayed he would be alive when we arrived. He lost 2 limbs and a lot of blood. God answered our prayers that day he sent two angels to help our brother until paramedics arrived. His life was saved with a pair of shoe laces! These two wonderful women kept my brother from bleeding to death. My brother stayed awake the whole time thinking about his family. He was rushed into surgery and we spent the next 6 hours crying, praying and asking each other why.Six surgeries later we are still asking why. We truly believe Chris has a special job in life to do. But he and his family need your help. He is only 49 years old. He loves to fish, play with his grandchildren and wants to go back to work. He will be coming home without his limbs. He has a long road ahead of him. His house needs some changes so he can get around. He needs an electric wheel chair and most of all he needs an arm and a leg. He didn't deserve this but he has accepted it. Please show him there are people out there that care. Thank you.
