Help Get Tyler to Rangerstop 2
This GoFundMe is to get Tyler Waldman to and from the RangerStop 2 convention in Orlando, FL November 7-9th
Your funding will help pay for his Flight from Baltimore to Orlando and Back, a 4 day Hotel stay at the Holiday Inn where the Convention will be held and a car rental to get around town along with the site fees. The owners of Rangerstop.com kindly donated weekend passes to him and a guest.
Please read the story below for more details.
This weekend at Power Morphicon 4, a lot of people had a blast. Some met their favorite rangers, bought collectables from through out the years and went to panels to get insight from the rangers they grew up watching.
Sadly enough one young man didn't get much of an opportunity to do any of this. Roughly an hour and a half after the convention kicked off, Tyler suffered a seizure and passed out. My friend Kevin and I were only a few feet away when he timbered like a tree in the woods. I saw his head about to make contact with the pavement and slide my foot between his skull and the hard concrete floor. Moments later Tyler broke in to a seizer, Kevin called the police and an ambulance. While we waited we asked Austin St John if he could help. Austin is an off duty Paramedic (Best know as the Original Red Ranger from Mighty Morphin Power Rangers) and was a huge help taking care of Tyler till the paramedics came and took him to the hospital. Unfortunatly Tyler spend the whole convention in a local California hospital.
When the Rangers at the convention heard about this, they had to do some thing to make him feel like his trip to PMC4 wasn't in vain. So all the rangers that were at the con on Sunday signed a poster donated by the admins of PMC. We were able to get a few to say a brief message to let Tyler know he's in all of our prayers.
The love and care from the Rangers and fans truly show "Once a Ranger, Always a Ranger."

All other donors please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your mailing address so I can send you a "thank you" letter from our team.
I'm totally moved by everyone who has stepped up to help out Tyler. I know personally he is very excited.
Some of you may know that Austin St. John is covering Tyler's flight.
All money after the other flight, hotel and rental car will be put on a visa for Tyler to put towards hospital bills.
1) We're less then $225 dollars away from making goal in just 3 days!
2) Austin St John has offered to pay for Tyler's flight on his own. So all the extra donations after his guest's flight, the hotel and a rental car will go on a visa to help pay some of his hospital expenses.
Thank you to all the donors and supporters so far! You all show the ranger spirit is more then just a fandom! It's a family!
