Clay, who recently turned 80, was in critical condition and underwent surgery to get plates and screws implanted. He had a large blood clot behind his vocal cords that prevented him from breathing on his own, so he was intubated for a few days. He was released from the hospital on Monday, September 10, eight days after the attack (see photo). He’s under doctor’s orders to wear a neck brace for three months and not to drive for three months.
Clay does have health insurance, but it won’t cover all the hospital costs. He will also suffer from loss of income for at least a few months. If you can contribute to this fund to help Clay and Jeanne through this difficult time, it will be greatly appreciated.
Here is an NBC News article about the incident.
Here is an ABC News segment on the attack, which includes an interview with Clay’s wife, Jeanne.
Thank you for helping my good friend, Clay. Some years back, he was the lead usher at the Pasadena Temple for a few years and was the head usher for the meditation room at the Biltmore when the Self-Realization Fellowship World Convocation was held there.
