One of our brothers needs prayers and support

Published on November 1, 2013

Join us in support of Mike DeMartini, currently

in rehab at CMC Main in Charlotte, NC.  He had

extensive head and body trauma which required

several surgeries.  What we know is that he

crashed while enjoying a motorcycle ride with

two fellow Charlotte firefighters, traveling in

Stanly County.  He was flown to CMC Main in

downtown Charlotte, NC for treatment. Mike is married with three young children (two boys and a girl ages 5, 8 and 10).

If you’d like to donate to the Mike DeMartini Recovery Fund you can do so right here.  All funds (100%) will go to the DeMartini family to help with medical and personal expenses.  Thanks for your contribution!




As of November 20 we know that Mike will be leaving rehab in a few days to continue his recovery at home.  He is facing one more surgery to repair his shoulder and arm.  Hopefully this will be the last surgery needed.  For the latest updates on his recovery click on the link below.

Mike is scheduled for another surgery tomorrow (Wednesday, 11-6-13).  Keep him in your thoughts and prayers.

As of 8:00PM on 11-3-13 – Yesterday (11-2-13) doctors attempted to pull the breathing tube out, but after several hours Mike was not waking up and they decided to leave it alone until today.  Today they put the ventilator in support mode and Mike was breathing on his own for about 30 minutes until he started getting agitated, so the doctors placed it back in normal mode.  They will try again tomorrow and hopefully get the breathing tubes out.  Holly has been overwhelmed with all of the support, and love that has come from Providence, Waxhaw, and Charlotte fire departments.  For now please hold off on visitations.

As of 9:00AM on 11-2-13 – Surgery went well.  He is back in ICU.

At this time (5:52PM on 11-01-13) Mike is in surgery to remove breathing tube and repair facial injuries.  For more details go to this CaringBridge site:

Update on Mike DeMartini
Site Name: mikedemartini

An account is being set up to accept cash donations to help with living and medical expenses.  100% of donations will go directly to his family.  This is a man who gave his skills and heart to our community to serve us in times of need.  As we enter this holiday season let’s give back and show that we care.  For now please bring checks to back building at PVFD.

Thanks.
