In an instant, Chris Richey’s life changed forever. Carrying a pizza back to his car where his wife was waiting, Chris was in a crosswalk when he was struck by a Jeep traveling at 35 mph and thrown twenty feet in the air, sustaining catastrophic injuries. His friend and colleague Mike Passaro tells us that Chris has had two surgeries and will have many more to follow; his doctor estimates his earliest return to work will be December.
Mike says Chris’s family is struggling with this new reality while adjusting to life without his salary and the all-too-common burden of accumulating medical bills not covered by insurance. Mike goes on to say:
Please help! Chris is a great guy. He’s the kind of guy who’d give you the shirt off his back. He is always the first one who would step up to help anyone who ever needed anything. Now he needs our help. Please help Chris on his road to recovery, just as he would help you.
