Please Help A Longtime MN Indy Wrestler In Need

$8,189 of $1,000 goal

Raised by 149 people in 4 months
This is for my younger brother, Peter, who wrestled professionally as “Pete Huge” throughout Minnesota and the Upper Midwest for nearly 20 years.

In 2016, he was forced to give up the sport he loves so much due to complications stemming from what doctors diagnosed as traumatic brain injury (TBI), likely acquired from the many matches he participated in.

On Tuesday, January 29, 2019, Peter went to see his doctor who had previously treated him after his retirement. His blood was taken and he was told to await the results.

Shortly upon returning home, his doctor called him and ordered him to immediately go to the emergency room for more invasive testing.

I took him to HCMC in downtown Minneapolis where he was then hospitalized for nearly two weeks. He was found to have a bacterial staph infection in his bloodstream that was comprising the effectiveness of several of his organs.

Prior to his release he was given a PICC line where he has to inject four different medicines, three times a day, along with 8 other daily oral medications. He’s already missed one month of work and will likely need to miss more. He does have health insurance that will cover some of his medical bills, but other bills are mounting due to his inability to go do his job.

All funds raised from the generosity of those who can contribute will be allocated for medical expenses, and other bills in general so he can avoid being forced out of his home while being out of work.

This is genuinely a case where literally anything will help and 100% of proceeds will go to aiding Peter in getting back to full health.

Thank you very much for helping and if you cannot donate please assist by sharing this. It is greatly appreciated!
