Scary moment last night during Monday Night Football as Damar Hamlin who plays for Buffalo suffered cardiac arrest after making a tackle. Medical staff performed CPR and then he was taken away in an ambulance. As of now he is still in critical condition at a local hospital in Cincinnati where the game was being played according to the team and his family earlier today.
In the hours after the injury a pretty incredible thing happened with fans across the country. Back in 2020 while Hamlin was still in college he created a Toy Drive to raise money and toys for kids in the community in his hometown outside of Pittsburgh.
Prior to his injury last night the GoFundMe he had setup had received $2,900 in donations. After the incident Monday night people started donating to his foundation as a way to pay tribute and show support for him and his family. Today the GoFundMe is now over $4 million. Truly amazing.
We are all sending love and prayers to Damar and his family right now. Hope to hear good news soon.
Here is the link to the GoFundMe if you want to get involved.
