Hit & Run Recovery Funds!

Hi there Friends,

My name is Roger. At 4 am on November 2, while commuting to work on my bicycle; I was hit from behind and thrown from my bike across 3 lanes. I lost consciousness while the guy who hit me sped away. I was left alone, bleeding in the middle of a dark street.

In a hit and run accident one is left with a lot of unknowns. However, I do know I suffered lots of road rash, deep facial lacerations, a broken leg and a brain bleed that kept me in the hospital for three days. But most of all I lost my bicycle and my ability to help in the community! I am a paramedic by trade and enjoy my work everyday. I'm the sole bread winner for my family and I can't heal fast enough. With two months of recovery ahead this will be a difficult time for us. My wife is pulling double duty as she tries to manage all the household affairs and being care giver to me and our children. We will be stretched thin but with help from friends I think we can make it through this.

I am asking for help.
Any funds raised will be used for medical bills, general living expenses and I'm hoping, the ability to replace my bicycle.

Thank you
