    As we all know that sometimes shit happens to us and we need a helping hand! Duccman's (a member for 9yrs as we all know) wife fell and luckily his son was around and heard the scream. If not she may have died that day. She had to have emergency brain surgery on the 17th to relive pressure from brain swelling. She had a 5 hr surgery and 5 days in ICU. He was in California and his wife lives with his son in Colorado while he works out of state. He flew back when the call was made and only has so many days that he can stay at home before he needs to go back without pay. He did not want to burden us with his troubles so he did not post this information. I asked him and invited him for a Colorado ride and got this information from him.

    I am asking this community on his family's behalf for any assistance financially with amazingly high bills that are about to come his way. We all may have financial difficulty, but this warrants a reach out to one of our brothers or sisters. He stated that a Union co worker may have started a GoFundMe account to help, I do not have all that information just yet or a link. If true, please donate. If not I will start one and post it to the forum! Bless you all for your help and may we all ride safe! Life is short and even shorter for those of us that ride. May we all come together to benefit each other.

    Wow. I sure wish her a speedy recovery and hope Duccman and their kids can hang in there. I am sure she is going to need a lot of love and support in her recovery.

    I will do what I can when the link is posted. I wish her a speedy and complete recovery. I feel a remote kinship to duccman as I was riding the Crest and visiting the Rock Store back in the eighties, I don’t we ever met, but might have ridden the same routes.

    If allowed here, as I'm not sure if it is or not, Here's the link his work friends have set up. Just so folks know, this is set up for the Ambulance ride their insurance isn't covering. I'm thinking too, that this is just the tip of the ice berg, no telling what the deductible costs will be for emergency brain surgery https://www.gofundme.com/f/help-our-brother-roy-rubin?utm_source=facebook&utm_medium=social&utm_campaign=fb_co_shareflow_m&fbclid=IwAR2HF9C5LLxqFw2RlgziQVRG842TW1zKHC0mhGJyPymOx0DvjTZDNw1g6bw

    Major bummer.
    I hope she'll be OK sooner rather than later.
    Good wishes on the way.

    Thank you, Bubba, for putting this out there.

    Terrible thing to have happen to anyone, but so hard on Roy given his distance. He wasn't able to be there the day of her surgery. Imagine not being there! I talked with him much though that day, tried to keep his spirits up and provide as much encouragement as I could.

    But now she is out of the hospital, he is there now, but son is still sick and she has a lot of recovery.

    He and his family still needs spirits up and this is one way we can all help a brother out.

    Every littles goes a long way. Just think if 100 of us gave ten bux...price of a crappy fast food meal... not much off our back, but would mean everything to him and his family.

    Just knowing we care and even sending a kind message means the world.

    How do I know? I've walked this world alone a long long time and have been through tragedy with no one around. But here... here there is family.

    Love you all and let's show or Duckie some now. <3

    Sincerely hoping for the best in this situation.
    The interwebs get plenty of bad press but I know of several online communities that are topnotch.
    Good things are coming your way!

    Great news. Go go go! Brain injuries can be devastating, so it's good to hear.
