Not really sure what exactly happened to Chad Osburn but he’s in hospital at the moment and needs our help! A GoFundMe page has been created for people do donate and the following statement was posted by his sister in law:
“My brother in law Chad Osburn has recently been in an accident causing serious injuries. He is currently in a Dallas hospital as the doctors determine how to continue with treatment . I am not only asking for everyone’s prayers but the support of his family, friends and community to help my sweet sister and family financially . I cannot image the stress of having my husband in the hospital , nor the stresses of the high medical costs. Any amount to help this hard working family would mean the world to them.”
