I want to give a huge shout out to The Blue Knights Chapter Texas VII. Mike at A Cop's Watch reports that they were able to hand deliver $500 to the family yesterday. Mike has visited Cpl. Scott twice now and reports that as of yesterday Cpl. Scott looked good and is in good spirits. They are expected to release him Friday and send him back to Shreveport.
You can read about The Blue Knights here. They do a lot of great charity work and are to be commended.
Mike's personal blog is here.
For new readers, Cpl. Scott has undergone four surgeries now and is facing a long road of rehab and physical therapy. The SIGIS fundraiser is to help with costs not covered by insurance.
Cpl. Scott is a Shreveport police officer who was injured in a motorcycle crash last April. Doctors have been trying since then to save his leg which developed a serious bone infection. The prognosis looks good, now, but he's got a long, painful road ahead of him. His motorcycle career is over, but he still wants to work at his job.
If you'd like to make a donation, hit the "Donate" button near the top of my sidebar. If you prefer to make your donation directly to the fund set up for Cpl. Scott, you can make the check out to Breck Scott, put "For Deposit Only" on the back, and reference acct. number 5732676084. The address for Capital One Bank is 333 Travis Street, Shreveport, LA 71101.
Remember, no amount is too small!
