Days after a Whiteland Community High School student was critically injured in a car accident, friends, family, classmates and neighbors started raising money to help pay for his recovery.
In the months since the accident, Michael Williams’ family has racked up more than $1 million in medical expenses, from hospital costs to bills for physical and occupational therapy. Williams is in a minimally conscious state, meaning he doesn’t speak and doesn’t appear aware of what’s happening around him. His parents have insurance, but they must figure out what insurance will and will not cover.
Not all of the funds raised by the community made it to his family.
