SHAWNEE, Kan. -- The community came together Sunday to help a metro man who was seriously injured while riding his bike to work in September.
Members of Hope Lutheran Church held a homemade soup and salad lunch fundraiser to show the Steven McCrary's family they are not alone in the fight.
On Sept. 23, Steven McCrary was sent to the hospital after getting hit by a pickup on Shawnee Mission Parkway.
"It means the world to us," Steven's wife, Victoria, said. "We will be able to pay our mortgage, our car payments for several months to come. And, it will free me up to spend my days with him."
Victoria said the community support has helped strengthen their family bond.
"There has been some complications which were unexpected, but with the grace of God and all of our friends, I see a good road ahead of him," McCrary said.
As of Sunday evening, more than $12,000 has been raised on their GoFundMe account.
