Reid Minkus is a Highland Park native and DHS classmate. He sustained a horrific motorcycle accident and subsequent leg amputation last summer. He needs our help. More ...
Reid Minkus is a friend that I have known since grade school. On August 5th, 2012, Reid was riding his motorcycle with his family when he was broadsided by a truck. Reid's right leg was severly severed at the scene. Flight for life brought him to the hospital trauma center where Reid received 7 blood transfusions, 2 surgical amputations and 6 surgeries.
The driver of the truck had minimum insurance coverage,from which Reid's personal health insurance and doctor's bills are to be paid. Reid has exhausted all of his personal resources and the bills are mounting.
Reid's health insurance carrier has denied his submission for his definitive prosthetic leg and Reid has exhausted all internal appeals with them. He is currently appealing to the Illinois State Board of Insurance Review, however the outcome does not look very promising.
We are also holding a fundraiser 6/15/13 at Trax in Deerfield. Please save the date. The fundraiser will include a silent auction. To contribute items to the auction, please send me a private message or email at Thank you very much.
