On February 21st, Zaiden Boyle fell 18 feet from a ski chairlift and broke his femur and jaw. He was rushed to the hospital and underwent emergency surgery to correct the femur break. The family then had to travel to a different hospital to get his jaw (broken in 3 places) repaired. The pending medical bills are already an overwhelming thought for Zaiden's family. Matt (his father), a local painter and firefighter, has already started driving taxi at night to help cover their bills during the slow winter months. The insurance they have for Zaiden will only cover $10,000 of his medical expenses leaving what promises to be tens of thousands of dollars for the family to pick up. Click here for MORE INFO.
