Ron's Medical & Family Support Fund

On September 15th, our friend, Ron, was hit by a car while riding his bicycle home from work. He has been in the ICU in an induced coma since then and has a long road to recovery ahead of him. His family has traveled out to California to be with him. 

We are raising money to help with the on-going travel costs being incurred by his family as well as the medical bills. He will likely need more surgeries and have months of physical therapy in the future.

Ron is the kind of person that would help anyone in need without thinking twice, so we are trying to follow in his footsteps by taking care of him in his time of need. Any amount you can donate to this very deserving friend and his family is greatly appreciated.


Funds will be managed  by Ron's family member Cindy Howard.

Update (9/20/16)

Hi, everyone. In just a day we hit our goal of $6,500! Thank you to everyone who has taken the time to donate and for all the well wishes that have been sent Ron's way. I know his loved ones are very touched and appreciate your kindness and Ron will too when he wakes up!

As you can imagine, the medical bills are going to continue to accumulate with each surgery and then months of physical therapy. I'm increasing the goal to try to help Ron and his family as much as possible.

Remember, you can also leave Ron and his family a note in the comments section whether or not you make a donation!

Update (10/18/16)

Thank you all for your generation donations. We have not only met, but have exceeded our goal of $12,500. I’m sad to share that Ron passed away at 2:00 am PST this morning (10/18/16). Although the goal has been met, the fund will remain open and the money raised will still be used by Ron’s family to pay for his medical bills.

 
On behalf of Ron’s family and friends, thank you for your support, loving words, prayers, and kindness during this very difficult time. Ron would be deeply touched by all of your generosity. A memorial service is being planned to honor Ron in Tehachapi, California. As soon as the details are available, I will post them here as well.
