Lieutenant Scott Schrader is a great guy, he has a wife who is a nurse and a young family... He is banged up pretty bad and has a long road ahead of him to recover.
History: On the night of April 1, 2014 Scott Schrader, a veteran Greenwood Mississippi Firefighter was injured when a burning beam crashed down on top of him, breaking his back in 4 places. Scott was med-flighted to Jackson, Mississippi, where he underwent immediate surgery to repair his vertebrae and disks. Miraculously Scott came through the surgery well and the only long-term damage is to his left arm. However, since then Scott has developed some blood clots and the doctors have placed an IVC filter in his chest which moved into his heart. The doctors have this issue stabilized but he requires 24 hour care and supervision now. Scott and his family live in Greenwood, Mississippi and his family has been traveling to Jackson, Mississippi (100 mile south) Over the next few months, as he undergoes additional treatment to get him walking and completely back on his feet. There is very little in terms of financial assistance to help his family despite his dedicated service and these injuries. Please consider donating to help this local hometown Hero and his family get back on their feet.
