Alex Ladd is one of my oldest and dearest friends. I've known him since I was 16 years old. He is a 25 year veteran and an award winning videographer for our industry. Most of you reading this have either been in front of his camera or have seen his work. Last week he was taken out by an unlicensed, uninsured driver on the 101 freeway while riding his motorcycle. He has a broken collarbone, ligament/muscle damage and a gruesome amount of road rash. He's got medical insurance but it isn't covering everything. He's going to be unable to work for at least 6 to 8 weeks and like most of us, he has bills and responsibilities. Any amount is greatly appreciated.
