Some of you may know the story about Scott Harper

For those who do not here is what happened to him:

This all started in late August when Scott was doing some intensive training for the then up coming MMA Event for US Troops in Iraq when he started having severe headaches. He finally blacked out and found himself in the back of an ambulance; then blacked out again and woke up in Savannah in ICU. His scan showed 2 spots on his brain. The Dr. wanted to try to wait and see if the clot would absorb back in and after a few days cleared Scott to go home. Once home, he got progressively worse; instead of just waiting, his wife, Georgia, decided they needed a second opinion. She got Scott to Jacksonville that day and within 90 minutes of checking in, he was on the table for surgery!

I cannot even start to guess what was going on through poor Georgia's head and the fear she must have felt. The Dr's there told him that if he had waited a few more days, they could have been his last. They had to remove 60% of his skull in order to reach the area of the brain that needed work. They had to replace areas of his skull with titanium plates. Scott said that he won't be able to fight anymore. Several months back we were talking about how last year he felt he was losing his drive, but all of that had changed and he once again sounded excited to be in there, cage door locked and putting it all on the line.

Scott has always been a close friend of mine. He has spent the night here many times when he was training in Forsyth and we would cut up like two high school kids. He cornered me in my fight and I have always been proud to know him and call him my friend. It was hard not to cry when I was talking to him, but once I got off the phone, I sat outside alone with my tears... I felt ripped apart.

Scott held a MMA record of 10 – 7 competing in such events as the WEC against Logan Clark. He has also competed in several NAGA, Casca Grossa, and other local grappling tournaments taking home first place.

He has fought for us for many years before MMA had ever heard his name.

Scott was in the Airforce where he served time in Kuwait during Desert Storm fighting for our freedom, and is a Major for the Coffee county sheriff Office where he has been fighting to help clean our streets since 1995.

Scott has 3 kids and a wife who had to take time off from work to look after him.

This is the time that the MMA community shows its real magic and what sportsmanship is all about.

Below is a link to help off set the medical bills from his brain surgery and household bills until he can be cleared to get back to work to once again serving his community.

At this time we are talking to some possible sponsors that may give away free shirts/ DVD and so on to people who donate 50.00 and even more for higher amounts.
Every bit counts though so if all you can afford is 5 dollars it will still help.

In our times with the economy the way it is, you can still do two things to help out Scott even if you can not donate any money. You can email this link out to everyone in your email list and post it all over Facebook and you can help keep it to the top for others to see.

2 tickets to the GTO Fight Night in Griffin, GA on Oct. 17th Cam McHargue/Team Praxis

Shirts/ Event DVD's anything that you want to throw into the deal so that when someone gives 50 dollars or 100 dollars they are getting some product.

I liked your idea about the tickets so that if local people wanted to get tickets to shows that were coming up instead of Shirts and other items but the only way to seperate the the two would be to have two donation sites.

I would love it if you wanted to do something like that on
www.georgiafighters.com

It is about trying to get money to help a fellow friend and fighter.

WOW! Had no idea all this was going on. I'm just about 45 minutes up the road from him. Heart and prayers go out to him for a healthy recovery.
