My Nephew needs your help!

My 18 year old nephew, Tanner Olsen, was hit by a car in Cedar City, Utah,on Monday December 10th. He was life flighted to Las Vegas, Neveda and is still undergoing treatment for a smashed femur and multiple broken bones in his face. The broken femur will require approximately 4 - 5 surgeries and it will be more than a year before he is able to walk. He will also require many reconstructive surgeries to repair his face. Insurance is not going to cover any of this medical expenses.

 I have set up a Fundraiser to help his family with the medical expenses. The Tanner Olsen Fund .

If you can donate anything that would be really amazing and helpful to my sister and her family to pay for all the medical expenses. They live in Cedar City, Utah, and are with him in Las Vegas almost 200 miles from their home. If you are willing to spread the word that would be amazing. Please keep my nephew, Tanner, in you prayers and his family! Thank you everyone for being so awesome.
 Love, Darci

Good for you for being an activist for his needs. Everyone should have an aunt like you. I reposted to spread the word.

i wish i had something to give. it's sickening to me that his expenses aren't covered at all. all i can do is pray, and i will- that the Lord will provide funds, but also that perhaps the insurance situation will be modified.

In what kind of a country is such a thing not covered my medical insurance?!! How awful! There is seriously something wrong here. I'm so sorry for what your nephew and family are going through.
