Raising funds to help pay for medical expenses for Ricky Blades

Ricky Blades was in a accident on July 10, 2012. After the severe storms passed through Maryland, he went to help a friend who's house was damaged by a fallen tree. While trying to fix the damage to the roof, he lost his footing and fell 20 feet to the ground. Ricky was flown to shock trauma at UMMC. He had broken 3 bones in his neck that caused a severe spinal cord injury. He underwent a 13 hour surgery to repair and rebuild his spine.He currently has no feeling or movement from the chest down. It is unknown what his permanent injuries will be. The doctor's say that he will likely need lifetime medical care. Ricky had no health insurance and his daughter, Auburn, would like to help raise funds so that he has the best possible care throughout his lifetime. If anyone prefers to donate directly to my Dad, our address is as follows:
8041 Bosley Ct.
Glen Burnie, MD 21061

Thank You and God Bless,
The family of Ricky Blades
