Musicians for Miracles raises money for Pittsburg Hypothermia Victim

Updated:
Family and friends of a hypothermia victim gather to raise funds with live music.  

In Pittsburg, Musicians for Miracles held their first fundraiser of 2014 to help off set expenses for 26 year old Colter Steffens.

Folks enjoyed live music along with a silent auction, with all proceeds go toward Steffen's medical expenses.  

In January, Steffens was found on the back porch of a pittsburg home in sub-zero temperatures. He lost his lower legs and right hand and remains in a wheelchair. But that isn't stopping Steffen's from achieving his dream of walking again. He says anything is possible as long as he remains positive.

"You got to look at it with an open heart, and a really positive attitude if you want to get through something like this. So I'm just trying to get through this as best I can with a smile." Steffens says.

"Over the last 3 years, Musicians for Miracles has raised over 100 thousand dollars. So this was just a no brainer. When we found out about Colter and what he's going through, we just had to give back" Mike Lockhart of Musicians for Miracles explains.

Steffens begins is therapy for walking Monday in Joplin. From there he will continue treatment in Kansas City.
