Medical fund for Bill Herbert

$22,750 of $25,000 goal

Raised by 169 people in 14 months
Created July 17, 2017

On July 17th, Bill Herbert was in a severe rodeo accident. He flipped off a bucking horse and landed on his head twisting his neck all the way forward to his chest causing a broken neck that will require an operation to fuse his C3 and C4 in his spine which is currently unstable.  Another injury is to the artery on the right side going to his brain is torn and occluded.  The doctors say that you can live with one artery to the brain because there are arteries on both the right and left sides.  He is currently on an anticoagulant drip to help prevent blood clots which could cause a stroke.

Last night Pauline was awakened when Bill became unresponsive for over a minute.  The nurse was finally able to wake him and he was very aggitated.  The doctors have agreed the next best thing for Bill is to transfer him from Temple to a bigger hospital in Dallas to see a spine specialist. The kids are with family and Pauline is by his side nonstop to make sure he is getting the best care. 

Bill is a wonderful father of two girls, Heidi and Henli and a loving husband to Pauline Reese-Herbert.
He is a 4 time CPRA Saddle Bronc champion and a 3 time UPRA Saddle Bronc champion.  He also is a Tech 3 with the Texas Department of Transportation.

We are starting this campain to raise money for medical funds, rehab, medical equipment and living expenses because Bill cannot work and Pauline has to do everything she can to help nurse him back to health.  Please help in any type of donation you can and above all else please pray for this family.

UPDATE: we are officially out of the hospital! The surgeon wants us really close to Baylor medical in case of emergency for at least a week. We were able to find an amazing rate at a hotel only a few miles away where Bill can rest and not be disturbed by nurses every minute. He is on pain meds and I intend to make him sleep as much as possible. Thank you so much too all of our wonderful friends who have done so much for us! I've spent my whole career doing things for others and to have it returned tenfold is emotionally overwhelming! We feel so loved! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts❤️. I will keep you updated on his progress.
