Terrence Williams is raising money for his medical expenses after a tragic ride share accident resulted in a lengthy hospital stay due to a fractured neck and back, and his conservative fans have already smashed the financial goal.
Williams was in Washington, D.C. visiting President Donald J. Trump for a Black History Month event when his Lyft driver tragically lost control of their vehicle and nearly careened off a bridge, resulting in an accident that left Williams hospitalized with neck and back injuries for the last few weeks.
With medical bills mounting at the same time he is unable to raise funds on his social media channels, Williams’ friends and associates began fundraising on GoFundMe to pay for his medical bills.
The fundraising goal was $20,000, and his fans and supporters smashed this goal in the first few days of the GoFundMe page’s existence. At press time, fans have raised almost $27,000 for Williams.
While in route to the White House to meet with President Trump, [Williams’] Lyft driver lost control of his vehicle and crashed head first into a guard rail on the highway. Terrence said that in that moment, he thought his life was over. Terrence has suffered fractures in his neck and lower back. While he feels grateful to be alive, he is in constant pain. He is currently staying with a friend who is able to help him with daily tasks, but will be unable to work or be a part of the tour for all of March. If Terrence has brought joy to your life as he has mine, now’s the time to show him how much you care. 100% of all donations will go directly to Terrence to help him during this time. God bless you and thank you for your prayers and support.
Only hours after the accident, Williams was already in good spirits and joking about the events of the day, telling Periscope viewers that he still doesn’t understand “why two Trump supporters would attack a black man at 2 in the morning in Chicago,” referring to the Jussie Smollett hate hoax. Williams is set to meet with a surgeon later this week to determine his next steps.
Update! I have an appointment with a neck and spine surgeon Wednesday morning. Will let y’all know what he say! Can’t wait to get back at it.
