Tom Lowe issues update. GoFund me smashes target.
We spoke to Tom yesterday and he’s in good spirits in a Tahitian hospital despite what he has been through. He is fully humbled by the support he has received via messages and the GoFund me to cover his medical bills which smashed it’s target and wants everyone to know how grateful he is.
He posted on Insta to say how important the funding was to help him cover his bills,
“It’s not in my nature to ask for handouts, but in this instance I don’t know what I would have done without it.”
Good work all!
“As some of you already know, I hit the reef hard at Teahupo’o a few days back and sustained critical injuries. After surgery and a blood transfusion due to internal bleeding, a fractured scapula, and many broken ribs, I truly do feel lucky to have made it. I am so stoked that my pregnant wife and beautiful daughter arrived to Tahiti today to spend the next two weeks with me during recovery- big thanks to @sullyontv for flying them in!
“Also @dom_walsh for coming to visit in hospital and checking in throughout.
Brother @gerglong has set-up a GoFundMe page to help cover my extensive medical bills as insurance won’t cover it. It’s not in my nature to ask for handouts, but in this instance I don’t know what I would have done without it. I am completely overwhelmed and humbled by the generosity and kindness everyone has shown.
Thank you for all your positive energy and thoughtful messages 🙏🏽”
