Here is a bit of news for you guys to check out. Back in February Phil Jones took a nasty slam that landed him in the hospital. We had heard he was hurt, but we didn’t know just how bad until today when we came across the GoFundMe Page setup to help raise some money for some surgery! Phil has insurance, which is a huge help, but it sounds like he will need about $25,000 to get surgery to hopefully recover some of his hearing. You can check out the full details below, or visit the GoFundMe Page to donate. Anything helps and if you can’t afford to donate, you can always share this to help spread the word so maybe a few others that can will see it! Phil is a super good dude and has been crushing it on a bike for years!
“Phil Took a bad spill at the local pump track in his hometown of Gastonia, NC on February 18,2019. He spent a week in ICU due to the serious injuries he sustained. Phil fractured his skull and sinus, suffered a brain bleed and even more tragically, Phil lost hearing in his right ear.
As as many of you already know, Phil had a similar accident in 2006 that robbed him of all hearing in his left ear. This recent accident has left him totally deaf.
Phil currently has tens of thousands of dollars in medical bills and it’s expected to increase. He has been referred to a surgeon in Charlotte as his only hope of regaining any hearing through cochlear implant surgery. The surgery is roughly $75,000 each ear. His insurance will cover most, but his deductible, out of pocket and the 20% he will be responsible for will be extremely expensive.
We are reaching out to all of Phil’s BMX fam, his friends, his woodworking customers and friends and anyone that can help him recover from this devastating injury as quickly as possible.
All proceeds from this fundraiser will go directly to Phil to help covers his medical expenses.
Lets all help Phil to get back to what he loves!”
