Phil Took a bad spill at the local pump track in his hometown of Gastonia, NC on February 18,2019. He spent a week in ICU due to the serious injuries he sustained. Phil fractured his skull and sinus, suffered a brain bleed and even more tragically, Phil lost hearing in his right ear.
As as many of you already know, Phil had a similar accident in 2006 that robbed him of all hearing in his left ear. This recent accident has left him totally deaf.
Phil currently has tens of thousands of dollars in medical bills and it's expected to increase. He has been referred to a surgeon in Charlotte as his only hope of regaining any hearing through cochlear implant surgery. The surgery is roughly $75,000 each ear. His insurance will cover most, but his deductible, out of pocket and the 20% he will be responsible for will be extremely expensive.
We are reaching out to all of Phil’s BMX fam, his friends, his woodworking customers and friends and anyone that can help him recover from this devastating injury as quickly as possible.
All proceeds from this fundraiser will go directly to Phil to help covers his medical expenses.
