Attacked & Bitten by 2 Pitbulls.

Dear Friends,

As some of you may or may not be aware, our dear friend Randy was attacked viciously by two Pitbull’s while on the job. This violent attack was unprovoked and delivered a major injury that immobilized his fingers and wrist on his left hand.  The bite torn into the muscle and use of that left hand will never be 100%.

The extents of the injuries are substantial and Randy has already undergone surgery and continuing rehabilitation at considerable out-of-pocket costs. Due to the nature of Randy’s self-employment there is no coverage by an employer’s workman’s compensation plan or health insurance.

The homeowner nor the companies are taking any responsibility. Furthermore the homeowner’s policy has a specific exclusion (as do most homeowners policies) against dog attacks. Randy has depleted all of his savings and is in dire need of financial assistance. Compound these issues with loss of use of his left hand, loss of income and add to that having to move out and find a new place to call home; one might think damn....something's got to give.  

Randy has not worked since June 27th, 2018. Besides the obvious trauma of the attack and the painful recovery from such an experience, Randy needs our help RIGHT NOW to get back on his feet. Please contribute what you can to help our friend in his time of need before it becomes a more dire situation.

Thank you in advance for your generosity and display of kindness!
