Help Support Bubba’s Recovery

Donation protected
John Maroney, known as “Bubba” or “JP” to his friends and family, life was turned upside down Friday, March 4th when he was involved in a serious snowmobiling accident near Island Pond, VT which has left him paralyzed.
Bubba who resides in Watertown, CT suffered multiple injuries to his vertebrae and has lost feeling from his chest down. He is expected to remain in the hospital for a few weeks and then transfer to a rehabilitation center to recover. He has a very long road ahead of him and many unexpected expenses.
Although he would never ask for it himself, Bubba is in need of our help.
100% of the funds will be used to cover medical, rehabilitation expenses and to retro fit his home to make it wheelchair accessible.
Bubba is one of the most good-hearted people you will ever meet and is loved by his friends and family and the entire Island Pond Snowmobiling community, which is rallying behind him.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Please keep Bubba in your thoughts and prayers!
