“On September 17th my uncle Casey English was on his way home from church when a car pulled out in front of him and they collided. His right side went down the passenger side of car and his bike veered into the ditch hitting a log where he was thrown approximately 75 to 100 feet.
He was airlifted to University Health where they worked to save his right arm and leg for almost ten hours due to traumatic injuries. He suffered a brain bleed, broken pelvis, broken ribs, fractures to his left wrist and thumb, and right foot. He has had 5 wash out surgeries to right arm and leg.
Today Casey is able to communicate but has confusion at times. His right arm is severely damaged and the doctors are very concerned about it.
My uncle has ridden motorcycles his whole life. He has traveled to many places across the United States. He has been to Sturgis the past 12 years in a row. He has the sweetest soul and always wears a smile on his face. Please pray for him and his recovery.
I am coordinating a benefit for him where all proceeds will go toward medical bills and expenses.”
The flyers for the Casey English benefit at the Coushatta Country Club and the T-Shirt sale are included with this article. Bufkin may be contacted at 318-553-0900 to purchase a shirt or get more information.
