Exclamation One of our own needs some help

One of our own needs some major thoughts and help with some hospital bills. I found out about a week back that Jeff Cropper, (JC Perf on here) was involved in a very bad accident in KW ... I dont know all of the details, but I know our freind is in need. his Mom has started a go fund me on FB. Jeff was always a fun and great friend and always ready to help out his friends and people on poker runs. Jeff was also part of quite a few race teams famously part of Team Fever with the late Joe Sgro.. Jeff has 2 children that mean the world to him, so in the spirit of the holiday season and of giving thanks anything you can donate will help. Even if you cant help, some major thoughts and prayers to help out a good guy. please refrain from any negativity...
Quote from Jeffs mom;
Our dear son was critically injured in a motor scooter accident and sustained life threatening injuries. Was airlifted to a trauma hospital in critical condition.Remains in a coma, on a ventilator. His eye sight may be compromised as well. Jeff is a dear dad to his two children,his brothers and friend to many. I have started this fundraiser to assist with his medical, cosmetic and dental procedures.

Holy Crap!!! I was just talking to him in KW. This is the first that I've heard of an accident. Get well soon JC. Unfortunately duct tape won't work on a head injury or he'd fix himself.

It won't let me donate because I'm not on FB?

That is terrible news, Jeff was always super helpful to me in my boating days and built all my incredibly reliable engines and was an awesome guy to be around. I haven't seen him since before he had kids. I hope he gets well soon, I will go donate.

That really sucks I ran into him briefly in Key West and was sure I would see him again before we left town. I was able to pay with paypal if that makes it any easier. His mom said she was requesting checks sent to her and she will start a bank account for Jeff. Can send to Rosalie Cropper. 4348 Via Del Santi Venice, Florida 34293.
