Dear friends of Wyatt:


As you may know, our wonderful friend, Wyatt, had a minor accident with major complications back in mid December. He stepped off a ladder and bent his foot in such a way that he injured himself badly. He fractured the tip of a metatarsal bone and detached a tendon. The injury was more complicated than expected at first and it required that anchors be surgically inserted to reattach his tendon, leaving Wyatt out of commission for nearly 9-12 weeks, required for a proper recovery.


His insurance requires that he pay $9,800 out of pocket each year, plus the unpredictable costs of future treatments, visits and physical therapy. So far medical expenses have surpassed $29,000! 


As things stand, no pun intended, he is unable to earn a living because he is self-employed and as such, he does not have worker's compensation. Wyatt is fine at home, getting as much rest as possible, but he is understandably worried about riding this out financially, as his hospital bills continue to mount. Wyatt is facing perilous financial hardship, as he is unable to earn money to cover living expenses alone.


Now, I hope that I don't need to remind you what an amazing friend Wyatt is. I was in a similar position last year; my place burned down, life gave me lemons, and Wyatt came to my aid without question- we made lemonade! His support was invaluable to me, so I'm starting this fundraising effort with the hope to reciprocate and return the favor. After all, this is what friends are for, right?


What can you do to help? You can buy him a shot or two and toast to his speedy recovery. More importantly, you can donate generously, or as much as you can, and forward this fundraising page to those who may also know and love Wyatt as much as we do. Wyatt needs some loving; let's show him that we really care!


You'll be fine, Wyatt! We love you tons and we are here for you!


Arturo and all of Wyatt's friends
