A Tenby doorman will wake up from a coma with life-changing injuries after a crash on the A40 in Carmarthenshire.
Richard Jones, 30, has been in a medically-induced coma since arriving at Morriston Hospital in Swansea.
Mr Jones has been described by friends as "a man of many words" and are willing the "cheeky guy" to keep fighting.
His family, including father Joey and sister Emma Louise, are preparing to break the news that he will need a prosthetic leg once he has recovered.
A fundraising page for Mr Jones and his family has already raised more than £11,000 in two days.
Mr Palmer also added on behalf of the family: "We all know Richard would be so touched and thankful for the love and support received for the past few days and the future to come.
"Richard's family are so overwhelmed by the love and support received and want to say a massive thank you in advance."
The Pembrokeshire man, who plays rugby for Tenby, was travelling in his Toyota Hilux pick-up at lunchtime on Friday, February 7 when he was involved in the crash. The incident, at the junction with the B4312 Travellers Rest, closed the road for several hours.
Dyfed-Powys Police are calling for motorists who saw the crash, or have dashcam footage of the vehicle travelling down the A40 towards Carmarthen from St Clears, to get in touch.
