Our friend, Erik Bastille, was recently injured in a skydiving accident. Help us alleviate his financial burden so he can focus on healing!

In mid-May, our friend Erik Bastille was injured in a skydiving accident. Throughout his time in the sport, Erik has always been a thoughtful, cautious skydiver. Unfortunately, just a moment of distraction led to a very serious accident. Erik was air lifted to the hospital and sustained a burst fracture to his L3 vertebrae. Miraculously, he did not suffer spinal cord damage and though he has a long road ahead of him, he will fully recover (and forever set off metal detectors everywhere he goes!).

For those of you that know Erik, it is not hard to be impressed by his compassion, his sense of humor and the maturity he brings to the many responsibilities he has undertaken. At just 24, Erik plays a large role in caring for his father while working full-time.

After only a few days in the hospital, Erik was determined to walk despite the pain. He is fighting hard, focusing on his health and recovery, and very much looking forward to getting back to normal life. His determination and attitude have been an inspiration to all.

Erik needs our help now. We are uniting as friends and family to help offset his financial burden. If we can raise money to alleviate financial stress, he will be able to put that energy into his healing process.

Erik and his family send their heartfelt gratitude and love for your generosity and donations. It is these trying times in life that can bring out the best in our community.
