The family and friends of Don Smith are uniting to raise money to help cover his medical expenses. Thank you!

Don went out on his ATV on the afternoon of Friday, July 8th. Faye, Don's girlfriend, realized something was wrong when she couldn't get in touch with him Saturday morning. She contacted the police who organized a search and rescue team. He was found around 3pm on Saturday, he had some feeling in his arms and legs but was not able to move from where he fell when he went over the handlebars of his ATV. He was taken by helicopter first to Reading Hospital then to University of Pennsylvania where he will need neck surgery that will relieve the swelling so he can regain function of his arms and legs. He also has some problems related to lying on the ground for so long.
Although he does have insurance, Don has a very long recovery ahead of him. Any help you can contribute is greatly appreciated.
A very special thank you goes to the police and fire departments in Wagontown, Westwood and Martins Corner and any others involved in the search and rescue.

Thank you!
