Tim Sylvia Arm Surgery

As you know, my fiancé was a force to be reckoned with in the UFC. He suffered an awful break in his arm a while back when he fought Frank Mir. UFC paid for that surgery, but he has been having issues with it for over a year. The screws are protruding from his arm, and he has had repeat infections. The UFC is refusing to pay for any part of repairing it. I am bringing him in for surgery on Tuesday June 9th, and we will be paying out of pocket for the surgery. Any help would be greatly appreciated! If you know Tim, you know he’d do anything for anyone. Let’s try and take some of the stress off so he can heal and get back to living his life.
