Friends of Weston Eaves are having a fundraiser for him and his family this Saturday Nov 1, 2014 from 5pm-7pm at Grace Baptist Church Gym in Tullahoma, TN. to help offset the costs because both of his parents literally lived at Vanderbilt Children’s Hospital for 3 weeks while Weston was being treated and could not work.
Southern Hospitality Catering will be donating the catering for a delicious spaghetti dinner with salad and garlic bread.
Ticket are $10 for adults and $7 children under 11 years old.
Weston Tucker Eaves is a 15 year old freshman and football player at Tullahoma High School.
On September 9, Weston sprained his ankle during a football practice. For six consecutive days after his injury, he continued to be in unbearable pain while running a high temperature. Although he saw several doctors during these six days, Weston was progressively getting worse, and on September 16, his parents took him to Vanderbilt Children’s Hospital. He spent most of the next 24 days in the Intensive Care Unit on a ventilator, fighting for his life.
Weston was given three diagnosis: sepsis (infection in the blood stream), Osteomyelitis (infection in the bones and joints), and respiratory distress (caused from infection in his lungs). He had surgery on his left knee and three different surgeries on his right ankle where they had to remove some of his fibula.
October 9 he was able to come home. He continues to have infection in the bone and joint of his ankle which the doctors say will take a long time to heal. He is also enduring physical therapy to help get his strength back and to learn to walk properly again.
