[Notes] From April Hunter: “I have spinal injuries from wrestling. Some days I can’t walk, others aren’t as bad. I’ve been in therapy for a year and the bills are REALLLLY adding up. I had insurance, but they dropped me when they found out I was a wrestler, so I’m paying everything out of pocket, which is sucking ass. Someone suggested I might be able to supplement my income doing this. I know I need an updated MRI ($1200.00 and $2000.00) worth of VAX treatments, asap, that I don’t have. And (hard to believe, right?), not a single promoter has offered to do that token “benefit show” so I’m on my own with this.” – Send donations via PayPal to [email protected]
