Hello, my name is Logan O’Neill. On Friday, 4/12/2024, my and my wife’s lives were forever changed. While headed home from a leisurely motorcycle ride to dinner at Serious Texas Bar-B-Q, we were struck by a driver failing to yield to me in an intersection. We were headed Westbound on 37th street, about a half mile from our home in Loveland, when this person accelerated into us, hitting us directly on the right side of the bike. I was able to lean enough to avoid our whole legs getting hit, but our ankles on the right side were crushed on impact. 

My wife, Shayde Wood, who is 18 weeks pregnant now, was on the back of the bike when this happened. Thank God our baby is okay, healthy, and has good heart tones. However, Shayde was ejected upon impact and landed on her feet. I’ve attached some photos of the X-rays, and you can see that her feet took a real beating. She’ll be in the hospital for a large portion of her pregnancy, and a fair bit more of it in rehab for physical therapy, working to walk again. Her first pregnancy will now be spent learning to take care of herself again, rather than nesting, exercising, and staying active as our lives would typically call for. Our Honeymoon was set for June of this year, but with her being bedridden now, her pending rehab, and my mobility is extremely limited, we will postpone.

I am the Roofing Manager and Lead Salesman at Loveland Roofing. This position requires me to drive all around Northern Colorado, be on call for appointments anytime, and requires me to do all sorts of things I’ll now be unable to do for an extended period of time. To be able to not only carry a 40+ lb ladder, but also be able to walk around on the roofs I inspect. With the severely fractured ankle I suffered in the incident, I had to ask my wife’s family to pay over $20,000 to have my ankle fixed to get me back to walking and working again one day. Unfortunately, I won’t be weight-bearing for 4-6 weeks, and this puts me out of work for the next 6-10 weeks while I undergo recovery and physical therapy to be able to safely work again. 

Anyone who knows us, knows we’re not ones to ask for help often, but we’re always there to offer it when we can. This has been a humbling experience to say the least, and we’ve reached a point where our backs are against the wall to pay our monthly bills, and with our first-born child on the way, we have to reach out to our community in search of help. 

Thank you so much for reading this and for your support. It’s hard to ask for help, but we pray you’ll stand with us and give us a hand in our time of need.   Love, Logan, Shayde & Baby
