Dear derby family and our community at large, Phil Sanford, the husband to the Lilac City Roller Girls’ very own Cheap$kate Sachi Sanford, was recently in a serious motorcycle accident. Following emergency transport to Spokane’s Sacred Heart Medical Center he underwent life-saving surgery, a medically indicated drug-induced coma, and admission to the Intensive Care Unit where he will remain for an indefinite period of time.
At this moment the family is in the center of the emotional hurricane that surrounds serious injury. They would like you to know, however, that they appreciate your prayers, thoughts, and genuine acts of support. As with any life threatening medical intervention, daily needs are moving to the back burner as the more pressing decisions of care and time with loved ones takes precedence. Simple things such as sleep, food, school, and roller derby are naturally not the first thoughts on their minds. This being said, those needs will mount until they become an additional strain on the day-to-day nature of this situation.
We are reaching out to you on behalf of the Sanford family to ask that you consider funding this page. Phil will not be able to return to work for the long-term of his recovery and our hope is that our participation in this drive can reduce the financial burden of living away from home at the hospital and the inevitable costs of co-pays, medical rehabilitation, and the like.
Any other support that you wish to offer should be directed to Amber Williams or Marissa Flinders, executive board members for the Lilac City Roller Girls. For the sake of simple management these ladies have volunteered to direct communication to the family to reduce what we expect to be overwhelming response from the community. If you are not in a position to offer assistance at this time, the family asks that you continue to pray for Phil’s complete recovery, quick return home, and an easy physical rehabilitation.
Thanks for your time in considering joining us in supporting the Sanford Family.
Sincerely, The Lilac City Roller Girls Donation page: https://www.youcaring.com/teamPhilthy
