Paraplegic from Accident

Thanks For Your Support!

Jimmy Merson's Bio

Jimmy Merson was born and raised in Damascus, MD and graduated from Damascus High School, Class of 1970.  He has resided in Monrovia, MD since 1977.

In 1975, Jimmy had a motorcycle accident which left him paralyzed from the chest down. In the last couple of years, Jimmy has been in and out of the hospital(s) suffering from Stage 4 wounds (bed sores) that left him with serious infections. His body has become immune to the antibiotics and it now takes a very long time for him to heal.

On May 28, 2017 Jimmy had his entire left leg amputated as a result of these infections. And most recently, on August 11, 2017, his entire right leg was removed as well.  The doctors have told him that he needs a Dolphin brand bed to help him from so many bed sores and infections. The cost of the bed is $31,000.00 and insurance does not cover it.

Jimmy is also in need of other medical costs. With his income, it’s hard for him with everyday expenses.  We are asking for donations and your prayers. All donations are appreciated, and tax-deductible.

Thank you for your support and may God bless you and your family!
