In September, my friend and former student Darin McMahon was critically injured in a training accident. While I don’t know the details of what happened that day, I know that Darin and his family have a hard road ahead of them. There’s not a lot I can do to physically help them but I can try to help alleviate some of the burdens they will face outside the scope of medicine. There is a gofundme set up to offset the major costs they are facing. If you want to donate, you have my eternal gratitude. Just click the link or the photo at the top of the page.
A number of folks reached out to me and asked how else they could help. Some great companies wanted to donate some things to raise some funds. A few stellar individuals donated even more things. I ended up with a lot of things in my office and no clue how to best raise funds.
I put the things in groups and decided to do a raffle. On 01FEB20 I will use a random number generator to pick 10 winners from a spreadsheet of everybody who buys an entry. I am offering entries in-person, but I want to reach more of my students, friends and followers. Below is a paypal link. You are more than welcome to buy as many tickets as you want. You can “friends and family” to make sure more of your funds go through to the McMahons, or you can do it regular and let paypal have their cut, it’s up to you. In the first week of February, once Paypal can transfer the funds, I will write a check and mail it straight to Darin’s Wife to use however she needs to. Simply add funds in whatever total you like, the price is listed below. The prizes are below the PP link. Thank you for helping.
