How You Can Help A Trucker Make His Dream Come True

CINCINNATI – Get out your handkerchief and read the following, penned by an injured owner-operator named Tim, somewhere in the United States.

“I want to buy groceries for my family. On 07-27-2012, while working, I fell off of my rig and broke my lower spine. I spent six days in the hospital and had to have surgery. I’m going to be off work for around six months. I’m an owner-operator and we have no income at all. The medical bills so far are totaling $150,000, and are pouring in. We have four small kids, one is autistic. I would be happy to just be able to go to the grocery store one time, without having to worry about spending money that should be used for bills or other things.”
