Friend in Miami Needs help and prayers!!! PLEASE DONATE

EDIT: My PayPal email:
[email protected]


I have posted this on facebook updating as I know things.
If you donated, that's fantastic, and please feel free to pass along.
Link below
(MODS: If I'm breaking rules with that, please remove.)


Most of these are from Erik and his family:
I, along with others, have been praying and need many more for a friend, Erik Brown. He was hit by a car on October 12th, heading out to do good deeds for others, on his motorcycle. He is in a coma right now. His wife, Jackie Brown is an amazingly strong woman that's needs prayers too along with their two girls. Please open up your hearts in prayer.
Erik, if you are fighting now like you ride on the track (and I know you are) you will pull through quickly. Praying hard for you and you family.
------------------------------------------------
Anyone that can, please help with any donation you can, and feel free to pass this along. They need all the assistance they can get with the upcoming medical expenses.

No updates as of yet. Still in a coma and not breathing on his own. Still praying for all of you!!!

-------------------------------------------------
Erik was hit by a car this morning on his way to the shop to get his truck to help someone. He is in critical condition, not breathing on his own, and unresponsive in a coma. He had all his gear on but still suffered head trauma, broken ribs, one lung is filled with blood, and he tore his bicep. He was given some blood and was taken to surgery. We need your prayers and good thoughts but please do not call the hospital. The medical team is working hard and too many phone calls are working against us now. We will continue to keep you updated.

Jackie posted an update October 14th:

First off, I want to thank you all for praying and sending your blessings. I have read every single message to him so he knows you are all supporting his fight for his life. It was a very busy night, He did finally get food - about 2 spoonfuls of a liquid protein substance through a feeding tube. Another chest xray, CT scans, hand xray, and blood work. I got a chance to bathe him. There was something so amazing about that experience. He has always taken care of me and the girls and to do for him what he did when I had my c-section was so healing for me. I love this man more than anyone realizes. Keep praying that he comes out of this coma and comes back to me. Please!


-------------------------------------------------
Update from Jackie October 17th:

Yesterday was a hard day. Doctors said we are in it for the long road and to not expect much for 6-8 months. I don't believe that. Erik is strong, my love for him is stronger, and God's healing hand is on him. My baby has two surgeries today. I need all the prayers and good thoughts, positive energy we can get for him right now. Be specific - he needs to get through the surgeries and his brain needs to heal. Please don't ask me any questions as its way to hard to read those posts. Send your love and I will read them to him. Thank you!

Come On Erik!!!
This tears me up. You are such a great guy with a phenominal family. I can't imagine what Jackie and their girls are going through. This week for me has been rough. Riding to work on Tuesday was a bit nerve racking. I have found myself being more cautious than ever. You are one of the best riders I know and absolutely have just a huge heart. We're all pulling for you my friend. Fight this!!!!

Anyone in for a group donation? I would be happy to send some funds to LA12 and have him place the donation on our behalf.

You up for that LA12?

Not sure how other than through Pay Pal?
Never received a payment; normally I'm the one buying stuff.

Praying for him Adam, he wants to live in this life which is why he's not passed yet. Please keep us posted on Erik's progress.

Thanks guys. I have added my email to the OP for anyone wanting to donate.
I will hold for a week or two depending on how many guys would like to help out.
SERIOUSLY, anything helps. $5 is still $5 less that Jackie has to worry about.
Thank you so much all!!!


Update from this morning (21 October):

Erik is being taken to surgery now to fix his left thumb. Please keep him in your thoughts.

Okay Gents, My wish here is to be the highest donating group on that board. Lets throw a few shekels to LA12's PP account and help these folks out.

Bump....:cool:

So a little update. Erik is fighting the coma!
He had some visitors yesterday.
Without permission, I didn't want to post their pictures,
so I cropped them out.
They said that when Jackie talks to Erik
his head will follow her around the room!!!
I know you guys don't know him, but that is frickin' awesome!!!

Got both! Thanks guys! Very generous for all three of you to donate to Erik and his family!

For everyone, I am keeping everything 99.99% anonymous.
(I kind of have to see it, lol).
Whatever you donate (even a dollar) will NOT be anounced EVER.


I will post up a (Hopefully) large donation in care of RC51Forums.com
MODS, any issues with that?

UPDATE!!!
(October 22 afternoon)
What a truly great day God has made today. Erik was able to sit up with a physical therapist's help today for 2 hours. The doctors were amazed with the fact that he actually scratched his own nose even though his hand is in a cast. We were told that he's going to need Neurological Stimulation, there's a facility but first he needs to be evaluated to make sure he's a good candidate. Please continue your prayers and pray hard for him to have a good evaluation! GOD'S HEARS OUR PRAYERS AND IS ANSWERING THEM


Very happy for him right now. I didn't know you could scratch your nose in a coma. I'm no doctor, but that's awesome.
