This fundraiser is to help with the expenses associated with Andrew Schiller's time in the hospital and his continued need for rehab.

Drew was a passenger in an ATV accident on April 1st, 2012. He wasn't given much chance to live at our local hospital and was life flighted to Carolina's Medical Center in Charlotte. The doctors in the STICU there didn't give us much hope that Drew would pull through. He had 5 broken ribs and a punctured lung which led to ARDS, causing his lungs to stop working. He also had severe trauma to his abdomen which left him with only 10% of his liver working. The entire right lobe had to be embolized to stop the bleeding from it. His doctors ended up pulling a total of 17 liters of fluid from his abdomen that had built up as a result of bleeding and other trauma. Drew spent 53 days fighting for his life and is still fighting for a full recovery.
