'Friends of LA' Surgery Fund

3 years ago By Rocky Gorge

Our prop Bryan 'LA' Perez ruptured his Achilles tendon and he needs our help with his medical expenses. Donate what you can!

In a practice session before the last match of he Capital Union Select side, our prop Bryan 'LA' Perez suffered an unfortunate Achilles injury. As a result, LA is being scheduled for surgery. Unfortunately, LA does NOT have health insurance coverage.

The accident coverage provided with his CIPP registration via USA Rugby covers all costs AFTER the first $3,500.

We are asking for 350 'Friends of LA' to step up an donate $10.00 each to cover the medical costs associated with this injury.

Here is a link for your PayPal donations: FRIENDS OF LA

For those of you that may not know LA, here are a few tidbits:

- Alumni of Salisbury University, and two time National Champion with Rocky Gorge Rugby (2012 & 2014).
- LA trained for the high altitude of Colorado (2012 Championship location) by riding a stationary bike while wearing a snorkel.
- He self reported to have "saved Nick Kuhl's life" last spring by placing his head in front of a punch in Charlotte, NC.
- The very next day, in an effort to conserve energy for healing his swollen eye, he began to refer to pizza as 'Za' - therefore saving energy by shrinking the noun.
- Recently he confirmed that he sometimes dreams in Spanish.

Feel free to donate more, should you be able to afford it. Ten bucks, it's just a few slices of Za.
