Raising Funds For Tony

Hello, My name is Toni DeSimone. My husband, Tony and I own a mobile pet grooming business and work together 6 days a week. On May 4th, 2012 Tony was on his way home from a motorcycle ride with a friend and after they parted ways Tony crashed his motorcycle into the back of a car. His bike's back end went up in the air and Tony was ejected over his handlebars and landed face down under the car. He has no memory of the crash or how it happened. He was air lifted to Holmes Regional Medical Center where he remained in I.C.U on a ventilator. He has since returned home and is recuperating. Tony received a concussion, broken nose road rash to his ears, face, arms & legs. He also lost three front teeth and has several fractured teeth. A finger that may require surgery and has limited use of his arms. Especially his right one and will not be able to work with me indefinitely. The medical bills are expected to exceed seventy five thousand dollars that's if he requires no rehab. It will cost close to ten thousand dollars to fix his teeth. There is no insurance so everything will be paid out of pocket. We just pray that if anyone is moved to help offset some of these expenses, please do. If we can raise enough for his dental expenses that would be a great relief.

UPDATE: 2 weeks after the accident, he's gotten new x rays of his left middle finger and right elbow. The elbow is fractured however it will require no surgery! Needs "time" to heal. The finger required a specialty splint to hyper extend the joint so the tendon can heal. He must wear that for 24 hours a day at least 6 weeks. If we'd have known that 2 weeks ago, we'd be 4 weeks ahead. OY! So, as far as him working, only minimum as far as helping me groom. Lord, give me the strength to keep up with the demand! Amen....
