Help for the Hannon family!
On Monday, June 19, 2012, at approximately 9:10 AM, Jason Hannon, a resident of the small community of Funston, Georgia, was involved in a single-vehicle crash on Ga. Highway 37 West in Colquitt County, Ga. while heading home. Jason was on his way to Moultrie, Ga. to meet a friend at the gym, when he called the friend and told him that he didn't feel well, then turned around to head back home. Shortly afterward, for an as-yet unknown reason, Jason lost conciousnes, left the roadway, sheared off a fire hydrant, returned to the roadway, travelled approximately another quarter mile, with the weight of his foot and leg holding the throttle to the floor, where he again left the roadway, this time striking a large pecan tree at a high rate of speed, estimated at over 80 MPH. Jason suffered life-threatening injuries in the crash, and was airlifted to SGMC in Macon, Ga. Jason's injuries include a shattered elbow, a compound break to a femur, a shattered ankle, broken facial bones, and internal injuries, including both lungs being torn. Jason has also contracted a Staph infection while in the hospital. Jason has already undergone several surgeries, and has several more to go. Naturally, Jason and his wife are both out of work right now, but the bills, unfortunately, don't stop. Due to this, myself, and a few of the Hannon's other friends, are working to try to raise some money to help the family out in their time of need. We are planning a Poker Run in the Colquitt County area, with both motorcycles and 4X4's welcome, for some time in the near future, details to be provided as they become available. There has also been an account set up at Ameris Bank for donations. Anyone wishing to donate can go to any Ameris Bank in Georgia (possibly outside of Georgia, as well, we have no conformation either way) and deposit funds into the Erick W. Kitchens Fund for the Hannon Family. Please consider helping out, and I will post updates as they become available. Thank you!
