Many WYBA Members have asked how they could assist with Medical Costs for two of our long time Referees.
Darrell Cooper experienced a seizure while calling a WYBA game. He was taken to the Hospital by Ambulance where he was treated and released. After seeing his Doctor and having addition test done, it was determined he would need surgery. Darrell will be having Responsive Neurostimulation Surgery (RNS) on February 11.
Pam Williams has a terminally ill 35 year old daughter, Nicole. Pam has been working, officiating WYBA games, and then spending the night with Nicole in the hospital for the last several weeks. Obviously, the stress of maintaining this schedule and caring for her daughter has created both physical and mental stress for the family in addition to a financial hardship.
This Special Assistance Fund will be dividided equally between the two.
Your contributions will be made to Westlake Youth Basketball Association ("WYBA"), a (501) (c) (3) non-profit organization. WYBA will then see the funds are delivered to Darrell and Pam.
