Petes Medical Fund

Hey all, I am coming to you cause we need you. Over the weekend Pete Briones, some friends, and I went camping, late night,  after I had gone to sleep,  our boy Pete got involved in some sort of altercation with two guys and ended up getting pretty beat up. I don't know much of the details on that as I wasn't there.  He couldn't find us and slept by himself and rode home on his chopper by himself in the morning. When he walked into the room Sunday morning it sure scared me. I am grateful that he is ok. He drove himself to the hospital shortly afterwards. Pete's jaw is broken in four places, he is currently in the hospital and will undergo reconstructive jaw surgery today at 10:30 am. He also has fractured bones in his face and is bruised all over.  As you can see from the photo Pete's jaw won't close and he has a gap in his teeth and they no longer match up properly. Besides the awful fact of a broken jaw, Pete will be out of work for atleast a month. This is especially a bummer as Pete just moved here a month ago and had
10383581_1459830304.6731_funddescriptionstarted his full time welding job and was doing great out here in Phoenix. It makes me sad to see him in pain and to see him held back when he was doing so well. He will not be able to make any money while he is out for the next month or two. So I am calling on all the homies and family and anyone who is able to help our Brother Pete out. This money will go towards rent and bills and other such needs while he is out of work. It won't scratch the surface of his medical bills but hopefully it will help get him through this tough time. He's keeping a positive attitude so far as I can tell. I will be going to see him today in the hospital and will update you again after I have seen him.  Thanks in advance for your generousity and showing love and kindness to our boy Pete. All my love, Riley Johnson


UPDATE 4/4
 Hey guys this is Pete comin at you from my hospital bed. I will be in the hospital for another couple of days. Surgery  went well though im in a ton of pain. They put plates on the front and left side of my jaw to hold it all together since i'sbroken in four places. My face is so swollen and they made me shave off my beard for access. All the kind words from everyone are making it much easier to bear. I have the best friends in the world. Oral surgery Is very expensive and  the help will be hugely appreciated I also won't be able to work due to the nature of my job and how dirty is. If anyone wants to come and visit I am at Scottsdale Osborne hospital, room 407-2 would love to see everyone. The details of what happened aren't exactly clear because I was knocked out but the 2 guys waited until all my friends were asleep . I was struck from side and knocked out. I don't remember anything after that but they must have pummeled me since  since my injuries are so bad. I came to laying in the dirt and had no idea what happenen all I could do is sleep through they night and go to the hospital in the morning. Just really glad to be alive and under good care. Anything you so donate wil go to Paying my rent and medical bills since I won't be able to work. Sorry if I'm rambling I'm on all sorts of pain killers. Love you all.
