Jimmy Ray's(Chainsaw) Recovery Fund

On October 22nd, 2017, Chainsaw was the victim of an inattentive driver who violated his right of way while he was riding home from a charity event. The crash left him with eight shattered ribs, multiple lung punctures on each lung and a broken collarbone. He spent over three weeks in the ICU enduring many tests and surgical procedures to help heal his lungs and has now been in the hospital for over two months. While things are now looking up for his recovery, his next step is to spend the coming months in a rehabilitation facility working to regain strength, weight and speech. This fund is intended to offset the costs of such a traumatic ordeal. While the insurance companies battle it out, there are the unforeseen costs that need to be dealt with such as up-front payments, specialized equipment for the home once he is there, lost income, and a myriad of other hidden costs. Hopefully, we can give him some peace of mind in these matters over the coming months so that he can focus solely on healing and heading home.
