Pookie and Brandons Medical Fund

So, I need a 4th surgery in a couple weeks (OCT 6th). This time to remove a cyst and repair a torn ligament in my wrist from my crash back in November.  Hopefully this will be the final one for this injury.  The total cost of all these was about $48,500. Luckily my Job at River city gives us great insurance, so i only owe about $6800 of that total. However that is about 23% of my yearly pay and on top of that ive missed about a month and a half of work total since this injury.  This has left me a couple months behind on rent, insurance and utilities.

I wouldn't be doing this if I had any other choice. Ive sold all my bikes to keep things afloat. This will help me get caught up on bills and back onto a bike once I am healed up. 

I know most of us are struggling right now, but anything you can help out with would be so greatly appreciated. 

Love you all
