Jeff Bauman deserves a medal, not a medical bill. After his legs were blown off in the Boston bombing, his first act on regaining consciousness - before he was even able to speak - was to ask for a pen and paper and write that he'd seen the bomber. He helped the FBI ID the suspect while still in intensive care.
Unfortunately Bauman is now facing enormous medical bills. He is insured through his employer Costco (contrary to earlier, incorrect reports that he was uninsured). But insurance won't cover the full cost of his surgeries, prosthetic limbs, physical therapy, and rehabilitation, so his friends have started an online donations page to help cover his treatment. They've already raised $300,000 of their $1 million goal.
