This week CJ, Janet (our receptionist) and I had the pleasure of meeting a man who is facing the struggle of his life. It started with a phone call to our office line at the beginning of August. It was Kim Broussard. She had won tickets to see Jerry Seinfeld back in May, but wouldn't be able to make it, she told Janet, because her husband had been in an accident and was currently hospitalized. We then learned that he was paralyzed as a result of the tragic mishap. He had undergone surgery and was recovering in a local hospital. We visited and got to meet the remarkable couple in person, who have remained in good spirits despite the battle they are facing. Ronnie is working hard in physical therapy and has regained some feeling in his hand and leg, but the future remains uncertain as doctors don't know to what extent he may recover, or if he will ever walk again.

A GoFundMe site has been set up to help the family (they have two young daughters) with ongoing expenses, especially after his discharge from the hospital. If you'd like to know more about their story or to offer assistance to this beautiful family as they bravely move forward, please click the link below to make a donation. Ronnie's goal is to be able to someday walk his daughters down the aisle at their weddings someday, and after meeting him, we are betting that he'll do it!
