Help give Officer Densey Cole his dream wedding

I should have gotten to this last week, but the contest runs for another 4 weeks so there's still plenty of time.

In May 2009 CPD Officer Densey Cole was paralyzed after his squad crashed while responding to a burglary in progress. His injuries were aggravated when he was robbed while unconsciousRasaan Shannon was arrested and is in Cook County Jail awaiting trial.

Densey and Mary Cole are now entered in Crate & Barrel's Ultimate Wedding Contest.  The top 50 vote-getters will enter the finals, and the winner will receive an "ultimate wedding" valued at $100,000.  Here's what Mary has to say:

On May 27, 2009, my fiancé Densey, a Chicago Police Officer, was paralyzed in a head-on collision while responding to a burglary call. He was in a coma for four weeks, but we were married in the hospital when he awoke. Almost a year later, Densey grows stronger daily, but our lives are forever changed. With mounting medical bills, we can¹t think about our dream wedding on a beach in Playa Del Carmen, Mexico. Densey has a machine that helps him stand for 30 minutes. To see him waiting for me, words cannot describe the feeling that would give me.

Please, do a good deed today.  Visit Densey and Mary's entry and vote.

Early and often with multiple email addresses. For the voting that is.

What struck me is the mention of "medical bills". If the city is not covering 100 percent of his medical bills then I need to take my oversized feet and put on oversized boots and then put said boots up someone's rear area.
