It is with a heavy heart that we report that Drew and Michelle Wattier were the victims of a hit and run, vehicle vs. pedestrian accident outside their hotel in Los Cabos, Mexico. Please visit the 'DONATIONS' page to see how you can help support Drew & Michelle.
The best information we have is that it occurred at approximately 1900 hours (7:00pm) our time (Pacific) on Friday Nov 30th, 2012. Drew returned to the U.S. the evening of December 5th and Michelle followed on the evening of December 6th. They are still reported in "critical" condition and Michelle is currently at UC San Diego Medical Center 200 West Arbor Drive San Diego, CA 92103. Drew has been transported to Portland OR and resides in a Care Facility.
Resort staff witnessed the incident and are cooperating with local police in the case. Please keep Drew, Michelle and their families in your thoughts and prayers during this most traumatic time.
ABOUT the 'Drew & Michelle Medical Fund'
We have had some inquiries lately about the donations and what they will be or are being used for. The questions have come in regards to insurance coverage. As most of you know, Drew is employed by the Lane County Sheriff’s Office and Michelle by Moss Adams. Drew has insurance coverage and Michelle opted to be covered under Drew’s policy, not her own. Drew’s insurance is good and we have to commend Pacific Source for their involvement/assistance during this terrible crisis, but there is a cap. The reality is, if Drew is
not able to return to work, full duty (and relatively soon), his insurance will not continue. The families will then be responsible to provide coverage which will cost upwards of $1600 per month. Since, Drew & Michelle’s needs medically are truly unknown at this time, the costs are unpredictable. Medivac flights, surgery upon surgeries, hospital stays, rehabilitation for both physical and neurological injuries, etc. add up quickly. Other than medical costs, we want to make sure the mortgage is paid and utilities are covered.
This is why the fund was developed….to make sure our friends are taken care of….whatever it takes….one t-shirt, one wristband, one fundraiser, one donation at a time.
