Big John's Burn Benefit

Our forever brother, John “Big John” Atkinson suffered major burns over his legs, arms and face at work resulting in 2 ambulance rides, a helicopter ride, visits, and stays at 2 hospitals. He is a contractor without insurance.

Over the years Big John has participated and contributed to numerous causes and benefits as an avid motorcycle rider. It has now become a time when needs a helping hand returned. There will be a local benefit for him on February 29th, however that's over a month away. Being a contractor with no insurance, the mound of hospital bills, doctor visits, and quite possible future surgeries, or specialist's along with everyday bills  will become overwhelming and he needs to focus on recovery.  As most of us, he works daily, but this injury will not allow it and savings will go fast.
