As many of you are aware, Dale Thompson, DC has been through some difficult situations over the past month. Dr. Thompson’s daughter, Alaina, recently underwent spinal surgery and days after she returned home from the hospital, Dale slipped on ice, suffering multiple fractures to his leg. While Dale focuses on recovering from leg surgery and his daughter’s health, we are looking to help a colleague who has been a strong advocate of evidence based, patient centered chiropractic care.
Who is Dale? Some of you know him, and some of you have only seen him through Facebook posts. Dale is a pivotal person in the drive for progressive chiropractors to have a voice and an online presence. As a moderator for groups such as the Forward Thinking Chiropractic Alliance, administrator for Conservative Therapy Research, and an active and productive member in many other groups, Dale has been ahead of the game in helping chiropractors with evidence-informed answers to everyday clinical questions. He has engaged in numerous debates over the years both defending the profession with science and facts against those inside and outside the profession. As such, Dale is a great example of honesty, integrity, ethics and professionalism advocating for rational, collaborative chiropractic care.
Dale is a strong, passionate voice and clinical mentor for progressive, forward thinking chiropractors and is in need of our help. We are asking that the progressive, evidence based, patient centered chiropractic community to help Dale out by contributing to this GoFundMe on his behalf. Any donation is appreciated to help us reach our goal of $18,000. If you cannot donate, please help spread the word and share this link to create awareness.
As a community, it is incumbent on us to step forward and do all we can to help a colleague and father in need. Thank you for your consideration and all proceeds are forwarded directly to Dale. He has been there fighting for us, so it's time we returned the favor. And if anyone has any other resources they can offer Dale, that would be very helpful.
The Evidence Based Chiropractic Community.
