Ra was involved in a freak accident that left him with a serious neck injury.
On Saturday night (December 16th) Ra was involved in a freak accident while competing in Muay Thai. He fractured and twisted one of vertebrae, putting pressure on his spinal cord. After emergency surgery to relieve the pressure Ra was flown to Burwood Spinal Unit in Christchurch for specialised care.
Whatever the outcome, it's going to be a long road to recovery. This page is to help cover the costs of his immediate and ongoing care.
Ra's partner and family have travelled to Christchurch to be with him, and some of the funds raised will also be used to help them be there throughout his recovery.
We're all trying to stay as positive as we can in this situation and do whatever we can for Ra. Anyone who knows Ra, knows he's a fighter through and through. Any and all support is appreciated!
Use of Funds:
Funds raised will go towards Ra's ongoing medical care, as well as helping support his partner and his family where possible.
At this stage we’re not sure what ACC will cover; if anything.
**Update 18/12 Ra may be eligible for ACC income cover. We will know more once we get through the next phase of his recovery**
