Yesterday, our friend Chad French suffered a stroke at his home in rural Indiana and had to be flown in a medical helicopter to a hospital in the Louisville area. He is currently recovering in the Intensive Care Unit , and seems to be in relatively good spirits.
Chad faces a potentially lengthy recovery time as well as substantial medical expenses, and expenses related to the air transport to the hospital. Chad is a tremendous supporter of independent pro wrestling, and we want to try and help him so that he can focuses on his recovery and worry less about expenses.
For those that don't know Chad, he is the organizer of the Annual PawCade charity wrestling show that benefits animal shelters in Salem, IN. He also runs midwestterritory.com - a site focused on supporting and promoting independent wrestling. In addition, he is the chief UWFi Rules judge for Paradigm Pro Wrestling, and does commentary for many wrestling promotions such as the Guanatos Hardcore Crew, the Ohio Wrestling Alliance, Unsanctioned Pro Wrestling, IWA-MS, and many others.
He is truly one of the best people in wrestling. Outside of wrestling, Chad is a father, a family man, and generally a beacon of positivity. Please keep Chad and his family in your thoughts, donate if you are able, and share this fundraiser on social media. All money raised will go towards Chad's medical and recovery expenses.
For years now, Chad has had indie wrestling's back. Now let's try and return the favor.
