The Accident

My younger brother, Jake Schonhoft fell down some concrete steps and injured his head. He is currently in an induced coma at St. Elizabeth East in Lafayette, Indiana. We are trying to get him the best care possible with hopes he has no brain damage. At this point we are thinking about transferring him to Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis. They are world-renowned for their work with brain trauma. As you could imagine, a helicopter ride from Lafayette to Indianapolis is not free and neither are any of his hospital bills.

As anyone who has known Jake for most of his life can attest to, this is not his first hospital trip. He has had so many things happen to him that we could write a book (after this incident we plan to). You also know he would do anything for anyone and has a heart of gold. Jake has all the ingredients to do big things in this world and I (we) shall do whatever it takes to support him.

We Schonhofts have been hit with more health issues than most humans deserve. It’s one thing to lose a loved one (our father in 2006) and it’s another to be hit with a fat bill.

I would love nothing more than to have Jake wake up in perfect health with zero hospital bills. Or at least less than he would have without our help.

Let’s give Jake something great to wake up to!

(Please don’t feel obligated to donate any money. The least you can do is send your thoughts and prayers his way)

    Jake,
    I have a piece of newspaper cut out at my desk to remind me that worst things can happen in life and people like you emerge out of it, so this is helping me dealing with a difficult situation in my life. Thank you for reminding me daily that I can be strong!
