“He went for surgery on Saturday afternoon and is doing great,” said Lisa Bay.
Richard had a shattered leg, a chunk of his calf was missing, as well as a broken hand and injured shoulder as a result of the accident, but found out that his travel insurance had run out.
“Redneck days was held recently and raised over $7,500. Thank you Richard France and everyone who helped make the event a success! This will put our total at over $33,000,” said Lisa. “It’s looking like our total expenses are running around $75,000 including medical bills, and transportation. We as a family would like to thank the community for supporting us, Richard has a long road ahead of him, and we appreciate all the kindness and love that has been sent our way. The care he is receiving in Calgary is amazing and we are very hopeful that Richard will recover fast. His spirits are high and he is looking forward to having visitors!”
