Steve Duhon's Bicycle Accident Fundraiser

My father was the victim of a hit and run accident Saturday afternoon where he sustained a broken neck, broken ribs, broken leg, a severe concussion and many other road rash related injures. The driver who hit him from behind fled the scene and according to witnesses had been speeding and did not even slow down upon impact with my dad cycling in front of him. He was incredibly lucky that the sound of the impact brought a nearby resident out of his home to investigate and he and the witnesses driving the opposite direction stayed with him and made sure that emergency personnel were notified. Had they not been there my dad could have easily died right there. The local authorities are still searching for the person responsible.

We are hoping to raise money to help repair the damage to his bike and help with his medical expenses and also we'd like to donate any extra to a more permanent fund for cyclists and their families affected by hit and runs. We thank you so much for anything that can be donated to help. He's fighting his hardest to come back from this stronger physically but he could use all the help he can to get through this financially.  Thank you all so much for your support and prayers, we are so grateful for all of your love and support during this incredibly hard experience.

I've attached below some pictures of him with his nurse in the hospital we received the other day, his bike after the accident and my dad at the finish line after competing in the Gran Fondo Hincapie last year. I've also attached a picture of his helmet after the accident, without that I can't imagine how worse things would be. He and I would like to reiterate to everyone, ALWAYS WEAR YOUR HELMET! You want the helmet to look like that, not your head! It can still be bad even with a helmet as you can see but in this case it was literally the difference between life and death.
