Just a couple days ago, he awoke from a near two-day coma. He is expected to recover, but things were definitely touch-and-go for a while. His family and close friends have remained by his side. Nothing short of a miracle has kept Ray with us. We've been informed by his doctors that survival isn't the outcome 95% of the time.
We are all incredibly grateful that Ray made it through, but now he's going to need help with recovery and rehabilitation. Fortunately, Ray does have basical medical insurance, but it doesn't cover certain critical things like physical and neuro rehabilitation therapy. Also, Ray won't be able to work for months, but bills are still due!
If we all chip in to help cover Ray's expenses and make up for lost wages while he's out of work, he won't be strapped with a ton of debt when he builds up the strength to walk out of the hospital (which isn't going to happen for several days).
Every dollar of the funds raised will be used to cover his rehabilitation and therapy expenses, any further medical treatment not covered by his insurance, and to pay for bills and other necessities.
Whether Ray is your friend, family, or former teammate, player, or student, now is the time to step up and help a man that we all know and love.
We'll keep you posted on his recovery efforts.
