Bills from Schocky's Bike Wreck

My name is Scott, but people know me as "Nonya". I am a member of the US Military Vets Motorcycle Club in Indiana.  I am trying to raise money for a chapter brother named Tom, who was forced off the road this past weekend.  A car was driven by somebody who was not paying attention; they drifted onto the wrong side of the road and forced Tom into the shoulder.  As he tried to correct, he was flipped off the bike.

He suffered several skull and facial fractures.  Part of his face had to be sewn back on.  He broke his wrist, ankle, kneecap, etc.  He has already had a couple surgeries to scrape out chipped bone from his face.

All funds raised will first be used for medical bills.  All leftover funds will be given to Tom to help offset lost wages (he is of course out of work, and will be for a while).  His wife will also miss a bunch of work when he comes home from the hospital by staying home to provide care.

Tom is recently separated from the military, but does not have adequate VA insurance.  I've spoke with Tom, and insurance is a big concern of his.

Please help a veteran who served honorably in Iraq and in Afghanistan.  He could use a hand, and I know he would be among the first to help out another Brother in need.

Speaking on behalf of Tom and myself, thank you so very much!
