A family friend was out at a local park with her children and nephew just before Thanksgiving when her nephew, Zach, stepped over a log and was bit twice by a 6+ foot Canebrake rattlesnake.
He has been in the hospital ever since.
The Post and Courier is keeping up with his progress so I’ll not go into those details. Here is a link to one:
He has had over 40 vials of anti-venom throughout this ordeal, each of which can cost upwards of $10,000. He has been hospitalized in intensive care for nearly a month now and has been on breathing support.
Needless to say, the medical costs associated with this can be huge. I’d ask that if you can give anything, even if it is just a couple bucks, you visit the button below and do so. The button below is a PayPal account set up in Zach’s name. You don’t have to have a PayPal account and can use any major credit card for payment.
Thank you in advance for your support.
