The family of Jacob Oliver are uniting to raise money to help Jacob pay for medical and daily expenses from his auto accident. Thank you!

The parents of Jacob Oliver are trying to raise funds to provide medical and daily living support for our son whom had a motor vehicle accident on his 22nd birthday, April 7, 2012. Jacob's door came off the car and he was ejected from his car while he lost control of it and it flipped several times, it is a miracle he survived the crash. He broke his pelvis and his clavicle and these required surgeries to insert plates and screws. Jacob also broke several ribs, bruised his lungs, fractured his neck and took a chip out of his skull. He also chipped his hip and now has a part of the left lung collapsing and filling with fluid, which is going to be rechecked on 5-8-2012. Jacob has no medical insurance and will not be able to work for a long time, he still has 4 weeks left before the doctor's will let him put any weight on his left leg. He uses a walker and suffers everyday through the pain. We his parents are having to help him out during his recovery on John's disability check. This was barely paying our bills and providing for us and now we have to care for Jacob. We have been living in our camper and there is no way Jacob could move around in it so we have had to rent him a motel room for a couple of weeks and a cabin (in our campground) so he can have somewhere to sleep and move around easily. His house that he rents with a friend has stairs and he is unable to go up or down them at this time. Jacob's rent on the cabin is paid up until May 12, 2012 and at this time we have no money to put him anywhere else and have no idea about what we are going to do. This situation alone has us stressing out and trying our best to figure out the solution. His medical bills are nearing $100,000 now and we still have months more to go before he will be able to return to work. We have had a wheelchair and a shower seat loaned to us by friends. We are trying to raise anything we can so Jacob is not under any stress so that his recovery can progress in a positive direction. Thank you all for your donations, support and most importantly prayers. We do believe in miracles and we pray for one each day.
