    Garth Goodwin
    05/13/17 - Waco Firefighters
    If you would like to help, please Click Here to Donate! Garth Goodwin, a 17 year veteran of the Waco Fire Department, suffered 2nd degree burns and a severe spinal cord injury while working off duty. He was performing routine maintenance on an elevated billboard sign and came in contact with high voltage power lines that caused him to fall. Unable to move his legs, he laid there for an extended period of time until someone who lives close to the scene discovered him and called for help. He was transported to Hillcrest Hospital in Waco then air lifted to Parkland Hospital in Dallas where he is currently receiving treatment for the extensive injuries he suffered. A long term diagnosis is still unknown. The entire Goodwin family appreciates the overwhelming concern and support for Garth. Of course all prayers and well wishes you'd like to pass along are appreciated more than you will ever know. Garth's circle of family and friends reaches far and wide and he needs us all now more than ever. Thank you again and we will post updates as soon as we can. For the latest updates on Garth, please follow us on: www.caringbridge.org/visit/garthgoodwin or at www.facebook.com/garthoutlawgoodwin/ The Waco Firefighters Honor Guard (a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization) is now accepting monetary donations to assist Garth Goodwin and his family with whatever expenses that they may incur. If you would like to make a donation, please make checks or money orders payable to: Waco Firefighters Honor Guard 1016 Columbus Ave. Waco, TX 76701 In the memo line please put Movember/Garth. You can also drop them by any City of Waco fire station, give them to any member of the Waco Fire Department, or Click Here to Donate! via PayPal. Currently, the immediate needs of the family are being met with the assistance of friends, family, and a couple of great organizations.
