On June 24th, 2017 Frank Kingsley (known to many as Bob Kingsley) was in a horrific motorcycle accident in Virginia Beach, VA when a driver pulled out in front of him. He was immediately determined to be in critical condition and was taken into surgery. He sustained various life-threatening injuries including internal bleeding of multiple organs, head injury, punctured lungs, and numerous broken bones including his ribs, hip, clavicle, most of the bones in his right leg etc.
His punctured lungs eventually led to a loss of oxygen and he was airlifted to a Level 1 Trauma Center ICU on June 28th, where he was then placed on a more advanced ventilator and diagnosed with ARDS (acute respiratory distress syndrome). After this, we simply waited for his lungs to get more stable and his oxygen levels to increase. Thankfully they did and he's been slowly recovering ever since. It was almost two weeks after the accident when he first "woke up" and was semi-conscious. He's had numerous surgeries and the exact extent of his brain injury is still not fully known, but he is making some excellent progress in all areas.
Needless to say, Frank has a very long road to recovery and is in need of long-term intensive rehabilitation (neurological, physical therapy, speech therapy, occupational therapy etc.). Frank has no health insurance at this time and was hit by an uninsured driver so he will need all of the help he can get during this journey. Every cent of this fundraiser will be used to assist with his recovery and rehabilitation. Thank you so much for considering giving to this cause, it means the world to him and his family.
