Default Hope for Cubby

Sad story about the infamous Cubby. Hopefully, the community can help him out.

My Dad was out on the disc golf course Tuesday, May 2nd when he passed out. After regaining consciousness he then passed out again. After calling 911 my Dad was then transported to Robert Wood Johnson hospital in New Brunswick. Along the way he needs to be resuscitated 3 times. The doctors determined he needed surgery to removed blood clots that covered one full lung and 1/4 of his other lung. Because of the clots, the CPR he received along the way and the time it took to identify the problem, my Dad lost too much oxygen to his brain. My Dad has severe brain damage

Really sad story. I wish my experiences involving him were better, and didnt involve him going nuts on people for saying "cubby ace" on social media

Prayers to him and his family. I can't imagine the decision they will likely have to make. I've always been a fan of Cubby's and this really sucks to hear.

Cubby exemplified the term "most fun wins". Fun is what sells our sport. He may have gotten more people into disc golf with those silly ace videos, than many of those top pros with their signature discs.

I'll be keeping him and his family in my thoughts and prayers.

Here is an update from the GoFundMe site

Quote:
Wow my family and I are just blown away by all the generosity of family and friends and especially those in the Disc Golf community!! I'm sitting here with Dad telling him all about his supporters and friends. Still waiting on him to get an MRI. It could be tonight or sometime in the morning. I've been playing Chicago on Pandora and singing to him tonight. He's looking well and getting rest for now so he can keep fighting!! More updates tomorrow.

Default Carl "Cubby" Cubbedge - Please Help!

Everyone, please take the time to help Cubby. Last week, Cubby collapsed while playing the game he loved and remains in serious condition.

For those who do not know, Cubby is one of the greatest ambassadors of our game. From Cubby Aces to Disc Golf Monthly, this man has given so much to our community.

Here is the link to the family's gofundme:

Please share the link wherever possible.
