Donation BOMB for Ben Wolverton!

One of the first things I fell in love with in the writing community was our ability to support one another! Well, here is an opportunity to support one of our own, David Farland (Wolverton) - after his son, Ben, was in a horrible long boarding accident. 

Ben Wolverton, age 16, was in a tragic longboarding accident on April 3rd, 2013. He suffers from severe brain trauma, a cracked skull, broken pelvis and tail bone, burnt knees, bruised lungs, broken ear drums, road rash, and pneumonia. He was in a coma, but has recently awakened. His family has no insurance.

Ben's treatments are already over $1,000,0000.
Ben will need extensive therapy as he relearns how to walk.


Ben's estimated hospital bills are looking to be somewhere around $1.2 MILLION! So what can we do? We can help! Even the smallest donations can go a long way when everybody gives a little bit.

  • THE DATE: Friday, June 7th!

To find out more about Ben and other ways you can help, CLICK HERE.

What lovely thing for you to post. You have a big heart. Thanking you for bringing this with all of us. Since I had a serious brain injury, I know how long recovery takes. But, recovery is possible.
