15 Year old Donnie Schroeder continues to recover after an accident took away his family. On July 23rd of this year, the Schroeder family was leaving the lake area destined to their hometown of Benson, Illinois when a dump truck blew out a tire, lost control and slammed into the truck that Terry Schroeder was driving with their boat connected to the back. Unable to avoid the accident, they collided head on, killing Father Terry, Mother Cindy and Brother Dylan while injuring Donnie. He was taken to University Hospital in Columbia and made a quick recovery. An infection of a bone in his leg almost led to an amputation, but it was stopped thanks to the Shiners hospital in Chicago that saved his leg through internal plates. Donnie returned to school in October after having a total of 10 surgeries and according to reports, he is ahead of class, excelling at sports and shot his first Buck of the year.
