On August 16, 2018, while riding his bike to work at Google, Lucas was involved in a one-vehicle accident with a truck. The truck was traveling 45 mph in the bicycle lane when it struck him. Lucas sustained massive traumatic injuries to his face and body and has undergone emergency surgeries at Stanford Medical Center.
While accidents involving a vehicle and a bicyclist are tragically often fatal, thankfully Lucas survived. He was wearing his bicycle helmet (see his CaringBridge site for photos) and his Beautiful Mind was spared. Lucas is dealing with memory loss (not surprisingly), but is conscious and responsive. However, he faces a long road to recovery. Doctors say Lucas will likely need an additional $50,000 of surgeries. And there will be months and months of rehabilitation, therapy, and ongoing care.
This GoFundMe page has been set up to help with Lucas's mounting medical bills. God bless you for any amount you are able to contribute!
