August 13, 2005
On Saturday, August 13, 2005, Richard and three close friends were body surfing in Manasquan, NJ. Richard was a strong, experienced swimmer, but on this day, he was unable to successfully pull up and out of a very powerful wave, which drove him headfirst into the bottom of the sea floor, breaking his neck.
How You Can Help
Two funds have been set up to help Richard’s family pay for medical expenses that insurance does not cover. These funds will also help pay for things such as house modifications, travel expenses, a van, rehab equipment, specialized beds and chairs, and personal aids.
