BENEFITING: SCRIPPS HEALTH
This fundraiser is give back to Scripps Trauma services for their care. I was involved in a terrible bicycle accident where I ended up losing my spleen, lacerating my kidney, and having the tail of my pancreas resected pancreas; I was discharged from the hospital with three drains. I was then readmitted to the hospital with pancreatitis. It was a rough year with diet restrictions and now a lifetime of compromised immune system. Dr. Nasrallah and N.P. Schultz of the Scripps trauma department manged my care after surgery by Dr. Diane Wintz at Sharp Memorial Hospital. This fundraiser is an expression of gratitude for exceptional care by Scripps Trauma Services.
My ride starts 5/5/2018 at the Belmont roller coaster in San Diego, CA and ends in Savannah, GA.
