Kolby Hunsicker Fundraiser
High school senior Kolby was riding his motorcycle to his sister’s house to let her dog out, when he was t-boned by an SUV. Thankfully, he was wearing his helmet, however it was unable to protect his leg from the impact. The force of the impact caused him to be thrown from the northbound lanes to the southbound lanes on 45th street. Kolby was awake during the incident, feeling and seeing it happen. Shortly after arriving to the ER, he underwent surgery for a Below the Knee Amputation of his right leg.
Prior to the accident, Kolby was living his best life as a 17-year-old high school senior. He was spending time with his friends and family, riding motorcycle, and working at Sanford exploring career options in the medical field. Kolby’s focus has had to change to focusing on giving himself injections, changing dressings, managing pain, learning to live with phantom pain, shrinking/maturing his stump to accept a prosthetic, learning how to drive again, and much more that is still unknown. Given all of this, Kolby has a positive attitude about his injury, and has great support from family and friends.
Kolby’s family is experiencing financial hardship due to medical bills and taking time off work to care for him as he heals and learns to live as an amputee. Your gift will be boosted 20% when you give online, and 100% of your donation will go towards Kolby’s family. Cash/checks may be gifted directly to the family.
