Rooks sustained serious injuries in the accident. He got surgery to fuse several vertebrae together and was hospitalized for 10 days. He still has a long recovery ahead of him, his family says, which will include a lot of physical therapy. It’s going to cost a lot of money.
In just three days, 76 people have helped raise almost $8,000 of the $10,000 goal. His family is asking anyone who knows him to donate if and whatever they can. Visit Rooks’ GoFundMe to learn more.
