Former WWE, WCW and ECW star Perry Saturn recently announced on Twitter that he's suffering from a Traumatic Brain Injury from the many concussions he's suffered throughout his career. You can see his tweets at the bottom of this post.
Saturn has a GoFundMe page set up at this link. As of this writing, the campaign has raised $5,230 of their $100,000 goal with 14 people in 23 hours. The description of the GoFundMe reads like this:
Perry Saturn is known the world over as one of the best sports entertainers of the 20th and 21st century. He's been a part of ECW, WCW and the WWE.
That kind of entertainment over a 25 year career has taken a significant toll. Perry is dealing with a grade "serious" traumatic brain injury, which causes the following problems:
1) Almost constant headaches
2) Sensitivity to light
3) Brain fog - losing time, basically
4) Inability to drive or work
Perry is in a position to get good medical care, but he's strapped financially. He can't work and his wife Lisa is a full time caregiver, essentially. They live within driving distance of his care but they need money to pay living expenses, medical bills, and to arrange reliable transportation that can make it through the winter.
This seems like a lofty goal, we know - but keep in mind each MRI is $2,500, each test is $1,000 - the money flows fast and in the wrong direction.
These are wonderful people who have hit hard times. If you can help, please do. If Perry has entertained you, please give a little back.
Help spread the word!
It's been a long time since my last tweet. I've been dealing with health issues. I have T.B.I. from all the concussions from wrestling.— Perry Saturn (@PerrySaturn1) October 10, 2016
Unfortunately I'm rapidly being overwhelmed by my health issues. So I'm asking for help from anyone who can. Please go to my Go Fund Me Page— Perry Saturn (@PerrySaturn1) October 11, 2016
I always hear God moves in mysterious ways. I now know, just because I don't agree with it, doesn't mean it's not the right plan for me.— Perry Saturn (@PerrySaturn1) October 12, 2016
It's really hard to accept the fact you need help. It's even harder to ask for help. Thank all of you from the bottom of my heart. God Bless— Perry Saturn (@PerrySaturn1) October 12, 2016
