Scottie Williams needs some help

Life comes with lemons. Sometimes those lemons make you want to throw a trick off a cliff bigger than your body can handle. I recently went out for a day of mellow skiing when a real good buddy was setting up to trick off a very large cliff underneath the tram at Big Sky. I have devoted my spare time recently to putting helmets on everyone in our community and ensuring my friends and our youth are wearing a helmet everyday. I was wearing a helmet of course after having brain surgery last year I will never not wear one again. My face took the impact this time and I found my self riding multiple ambulances yet again down to Bozeman. I have accumulated large amounts of medical bills and after making Big Sky my forever home last fall, life is looking rough to stay on top. The pain is incredible but I know the human body will heal, I had brain surgery last winter and recovered so well from that! I also have a disease I have hidden from most in my life, Ankylosing Spondylitis. I should not have been hitting that cliff that day but we are all motivated by something? I am motivated by those around me and have always felt the need to prove something, I think because of my spondylitis I have felt that need even more. I will get through this, I have felt so much support from our wonderful community of skiers and outdoor enthusiasts. 
I need to cover these bills to continue life here, anything more will go to the RYDE foundation and will help protect the futures of our sport and the youth of our communities. I am not going to give up on the RYDE foundation and I hope to be able to use this recent incident in promoting helmet safety even more.
Anything will help and most importantly help me continue to promote my message about helmet safety.
I love life and I want to continue to live it.
