Scott Harper Fundraiser

by Frank Bishop | source: The UG
 

Georgia based MMA fighter Scott Harper was scheduled to fight on the Fight for the Troops card, in Irag.  He had two seizures a few days before, and they found bleeding on his brain. One hospital sent him home with some steroid. He called the Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville and his wife, a nurse, drove him down.

After 90 min at Mayo, they tell him he would be dead from that medicine, and had him in the OR.  They took off over 60% of his skull, which is now held together and partially covered with titanium. Scott is a family man who served his country in Desert Storm.  He last fought in WEC vs Logan Clarke.

Needless to say, his MMA career is over, and he may lose his job. 

Members of the GA MMA community want to first try to get ahold of fighters who would want to donate autographed items for auction.  This would be an ongoing thing throughout the year.  Also, we'd like to set up a "Donate $50, get a free shirt from "Company A" and a Free DVD", and escalate that with larger donations.

All fighters or managers in the sport are invited to send items for an ongoing auction with 100% of the proceeds going to Scott and his family for medical bills, etc.  His wife is on leave to take care of him and his insurance surely will not cover all of the cost of brain surgery , not to mention therapy, etc.  And with 2 incomes gone...well, you get the idea.

Items should be sent to:
Frank Bishop
128 Tamara Court
Athens, GA  30606

paypal link for direct donations is https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_s-xclick&hosted_button_id=8221502

So Far we have had 17 people donate to the Paypal account.I was at the fights in Thomasville Georgia about 2 weeks ago, the Promote and Matchmaker joined with Split Lip to pass around a donation bucket during the event. We were able to raise just over 400.00 there.Please help keep this up and pass the link around to everyone you know and ask them to donate also.. Again even if it is 5 dollars.. it helps....
