THE STORY:

UPDATE!!!  As a thank you, everyone who donates $33 (his number in the World Championship Series) or more will receive a signed hero card thanking them for their donation.  If you can't make a donation, please share!

On August 23rd, 2014 Bryan Blackford received 2nd & 3rd degree burns on 20% of his body as well as a shattered elbow in a freak accident. He is concerned about his bills and his insurance won't cover most of his treatments.

Even though this amount will not cover his medical expenses, it will at least allow him not to worry about his expenses for a few months.

Thank you for your help!

Details:

Bryan Blackford was in a freak karting accident on August 23rd. We were competing in a 3-hour endurance race. Not long after Ray Alfalla and Bryan made a driver swap, he and his kart erupted into a ball of flames. He quickly got out of the kart, and eventually extinguished the flames by rolling in the grassy infield. He was on fire for about 20 seconds.

He was airlifted to Tampa General Hospital and we learned that he had burns on 30% of his body, 20% of which being 2nd and 3rd degree. He was also hit by a piece of the gas cap, which shattered his right elbow. We've started this fundraiser to help Bryan pay for his expenses. He is doing a lot better, but still has to go through a lot of physical and occupational therapy to get back to 100%. Nobody knows how well his arm will heal or if he will need more surgery, but currently he has restricted flexibility.

Many thanks for your support!

I used to sim race with Bryan awhile back, he was one of the nicest and most helpful fellas I'd ever come across in the community. I came across this page randomly and was a little shocked when i saw it, but good to see he's doing OK. Get well soon, keep kicking ass on the track. O BUDDAY JOEL PUTTY 4 years ago
