M13's Medical expenses, ride again

$57,943 of $50k goal

Raised by 2,223 people in 27 months
To all my freinds, family and supporters. I had a bad crash on Monday November 17th. A very bad crash. I was leading a tour and due to the very safe and slow pace that we do I was looking around a lot and I took my eyes off the road for too long. I cut across the oncoming lane and hit a short partition wall. My scooter and dog both smartly bounced off the wall and slid to a stop...both relatively unhurt. While I, being not as smart...flew over the wall and out into the air, it was great like superman! And then I plummeted about 35 feet to the loving embrace of the waiting pavement of a lower road.

I've broken both my upper legs. And lost half of my left hand. My every hour of every day is horrifying. I pooped today...was beyond horrific...haha...no really it was...imagine trying to poop with two broken legs...laying flat out on a bed and then trying to clean it with only one hand.

My son JD just lost his entire financial security. I just lost my life savings and all my plans for the future. In the first few days at the hospital I got very happy on the inside when I saw the windows didn't have bars on them. And then almost cried when someone opened one and I saw that they only open an inch. That was my state of mind. YouTube Search : M13 parenting baby JD

I'm doing better now. My wife is being incredibly helpful and supportive. But I don't know how long she can keep it up...

Taiwan medical covers the majority of it, but I'm still looking at large sums of money over the next few months. Plus thousands in lost income and I was barely breaking even to begin the with.

It will be 4-6 months before I can walk again, my beautiful baby boy has lost his daddy. Update: 6-9 months... right leg is worse than they thought.

If all of my 150,000 subscribers gave 50 cents, I'd probably make it through this. If they all gave 1 dollar then my family would be stronger from this than before.

But either way I can't do this without your help. I really really can't. My life is in your hands.

If there are any charities that could help...that would be great.

Money is needed for medical bills, lost income, care giving, wheelchairs, home improvements (wheelchair ramps...etc) and other things I'm forgetting.
I admitt, I'm known for being a bit of a jerk. But I've always liked to think that I have a good heart. I help with animals and Sean McCormack when I can. I donate to other Facebook users. I donate to other motorcycle vloggers. I donate to other motorcycle riders when I hear they crash and don't have insurance and need help. YouTube Search : M13 charity

I've always believed in giving something back. Now I ask that with your love and support, you help in turn to give that support back!

Hi guys. It's been over a year since my crash and I would say I'm at 90%. I still get pain in one leg....and the bone still hasn't mended completely. But I've got most of the movement in my knee back so I can take stairs normally now and sit on a sports bike. I can even do a slow jog....but still can't run. I'll be surprised if I can ever run again to be honest.

Anyway....I have a shirt that's only available for another 36 hours. Thought you might be interested. I bought one for myself because I honestly think it's witty AND cool. Check it out: https://teespring.com/chinesem13

We're closing in on the tenth month since my accident. Thanks to your donations these ten months have only been about half as stressful as they should have been. The other half of the stress comes from dealing with a divorce. And your donations also helped with that. And there's no more honorable cause to donate to than a man's divorce. Saving a man from marriage is more important than saving a man from prison...because in prison they just f### your butt. But in marriage they f### everything!

Appreciate you all. 2 days don't go by without me thinking of how grateful I am to you all.

Dear M, since over a couple of years I enjoyed your vlogs and learned a lot from them too. It is hard to believe an experienced driver like you can overcome this misfortune. I doo hope you will recover and enjoy your kid and your wife again. Of course I will donate for you and your familiy future. Greatings from The Netherlands

M, never forget that you have people all over the world who cherish you. You are unique. You're the ORIGINAL rave biker, the guy who taught me how to eat with a helmet on, the lover of animals, and the sarcastic father. You've touched our lives with your videos and your honesty. We care, and we hope you rise from this tragedy renewed. I'm prayin for you, Mordeth.

I started riding bike watching your videos. And I was also got in a crash in June, 2014. Broke my ankle and tibia in 13 places. I hope you find a good source of sustainable income.
