Medical and Travel Expenses

Our "Big Papi" needs our help! If you know our friend Adrian Drakes, then you know he is always the first person to help when you need it. He readily assists and always looks out for his friends. Unfortunately, our beloved friend has been dealing with an extremely difficult situation involving his 17-year old son, Darius. Last week, Darius dislocated his knee while jumping on a trampoline. In an unexpected turn of events, what appeared to be a simple injury resulted in the amputation of his son's leg. Within hours of getting this news, Adrian was on a plane to Georgia to be by Darius' side.
As you might expect, Adrian will want to be with Darius over the next few months to support him through his recovery and rehabilitation. While in Georgia, Adrian (who is self-employed) can't work and the bills are adding up. We are hoping that in some small way we can all help alleviate some of his travel, accommodations, and medical expenses. We want to help relieve some amount of stress for the man who has always been there for us.
PLEASE DO NOT MENTION THIS DONATION PAGE TO ADRIAN. We would like to keep this effort a secret from Adrian, for now. He would be so honored but would not let us do this for him, if he knew in advance. With your help and generosity, we would like to present him with a check from all of us, in a few weeks. So, please donate what you can today and share this page with others.
