USVMC Brother Accident Recovery

Brothers and sisters from everywhere. We have a brother of ours who was in a bad accident on Sunday August 12th on our way back from Cleveland, OH. We were on our way back from a great time with our OH brothers when tragedy struck. As we were traveling on I80 there was a slight turn that had rocks in the fast lane and our brother Bill Rose hit them. It sucked him into the pea sized gravel of the median. The rest was fate. The front wheel dug into the ground and sent him over the handle bars at 65+ mph. He flew and rolled over 150 feet finding himself and his bike in the fast lane of on coming traffic. Luckily he wasn’t hit but he still suffered a ton of injuries. He was flown to a local trauma center via life flight. After quite a while they finally figured out what was wrong with him.  He suffered 5 broken ribs, broken shoulder blade bone, broken ankle, bruised lungs, broken nose, and a very broken spirit. Bill has a family he supports but with his injuries he is unable to work for quite a while. All we ask is that we can get him some help for his monthly obligations to take care of his family. Also his bike is totaled and he just picked it up after trading his old one in on Friday, two days before. Please if you can help out this great man, friend, father, and brother. Thank you for your time you took to read this.
