Todd Urick, co-founder of 501(c)(3) nonprofit Common Frequency, and a community radio advocate and engineer is asking for help from the radio community.
Urick writes online, “I have a history of multiple traumatic brain injury. My recent deterioration started in 2013 when I bashed my head in an auto accident when I was volunteering my time to help put a new public radio station on the air.”
Unfortunately, in order to correct problems related to brain fluid leakage, Urick has undergone two surgeries and is expected to need more corrective procedures.
There is a GoFundMe campaign to assist Urick with his $60,000 in medical bills. It aimed to raise $15,000, and as of Monday morning, 263 participants have donated $18,681 to help Urick, and it is still ongoing.
Radio Survivor also reported on the efforts to help Urick and said that he “has helped dozens of LPFM applicants with critical engineering support. From engineering surveys to installing antennas on towers, he’s done it.”
