On Sunday evening, October 8th 2017, Timothy Tebbetts was involved in a motorcycle accident.
The tires on his motorcycle caught loose gravel on a newly paved county road in Tyler which caused him to lose control and land face-first on the pavement after which he slid and tumbled with the bike landing on his ankle and leg. He was not wearing a helmet so he has several extensive injuries from head to toe. Broken eye socket, broken nasal cavity, broken right hand, the left ankle is broken in 2 places, and several stitches and staples.
(the day before his ankle surgery)
The good news: HE WILL MAKE IT THROUGH THIS! The bad news: he dropped his health insurance just months before due to financial reasons. So far he has had 2 surgeries; one to repair soft tissue damage to his face, and another on his left ankle to insert a metal plate, and there will possibly be more upcoming surgeries for facial reconstruction.
Tim is currently immobile for the next 6 weeks (at the very least) and will be missing a lot of work to make time for recovery so I am asking for everyone's help! He will be facing several thousands of dollars in medical bills and, as a father of two young children, Zoie and Hayden Tebbetts, this is the last thing that should be on his mind. Please, friends, family, and anyone else willing, help me get him through this difficult time!
Please share, thank you all so much.
