Testimonial from Dwayne

Testimonial from recent  assistance recipient Dwayne.

 

“My name is Dwayne McCoul and I am from Truro Nova Scotia.  I was in a serious motorcycle accident on September 6, 2019 here in Truro.   A car pulled out in front of me and cut me off resulting in me having my left leg amputated.  I also had to have bowel surgery because of the accident and I was in hospital for seven weeks with no income or any kind of money coming in and bikers down helped me financially which I am very very grateful for.

Bikers down helped me tremendously.  I will be forever grateful for the help thank you very much
Dwayne”

Testimonial from Sonny

This testimonial was submitted from a recent recipient of assistance from the funds you help raise.

“Thanks so much to the Bikers Down Society!

My name is Sonny, I am 24 and I learned about this group after getting hit by a car while riding, fracturing my leg, etc.   

That was the start of a very long summer.  After getting home from the hospital, the dishwasher failed on us, it’s hard standing to do dishes with a broken leg on one side and sprained ankle on the other!  Then my boyfriend’s car broke down (the only car we have) for the first time ever.  The oil tank in the house expired and we had to replace it. 

The money from my bike and gear that were destroyed went to bills and groceries, not to replacing my lost items.  Learning about the Bikers Down Society was like a light in the tunnel.  A way to help make ends meet.

Thank you Bikers Down for having the backs of riders like me. 

With much gratitude, 
Sonny Moors”

Recent Recipient Testimonial – Wayne Fisher

Hello,

My name is Wayne Fisher and my Biker name is Undertaker in the biker world.  On August 14, 2019, I had a very bad bike crash on the Highway 103 near Bridgewater, Nova Scotia.

After that, I was placed in the hospital in Kentville and then to Halifax QEII where I lost the bottom part of my leg and foot.

Anyway, at that time I had no money coming in and my wife had to leave her job to be with me.  With no pay, she had to travel to Kentville and to Halifax as well from Bridgewater.  It took over a month before I had any money come in to help me, but Bikers Down was there to help me and I was very grateful for their support for helping me and my family out at a very bad time.

Once again, thank you very much for all your help Bikers Down Society.  Please help support the Bikers Down Society.
