GoFundMe for Alia’s Medical & Dental Bills

To make a donation please visit our GoFundMe Page.

On Tuesday August 13 Alia was in a vespa accident on her way home from work. As she was driving she had to brake suddenly and lost control of the scooter and crashed while doing 35mph.

Alia sustained some bad injuries as a result of the crash. In addition to severe road rash, Alia’s jaw was broken in two places, and a few of her teeth were broken. She was rushed to Sharp Memorial Emergency Room where she was immediately booked for surgery to fix her jaw and reset her teeth.


Currently Alia’s jaw is closed completely shut for a month, forcing her to follow a strict liquid only diet. After a month her doctors will loosen the bands so she can begin to eat soft foods like oatmeal, with ultimately no chewing allowed for 3+ months.

Unfortunately we don’t quite yet know how big the financial hit will be. We have to consider the emergency transport, the out of network hospital stay, the surgery, follow ups, medications, missed work, and dental reconstruction. To fix her two front teeth we’re looking at something like:

Root canal: $1000 x 2
Crown: $800 x 2
Impant: $1000-$3000 x2

Just for the teeth we’re looking at anywhere from $3600-$8000.

If you know Alia, you know she is a sweet, selfless, woman who always puts other peoples happiness above her own. She hates asking for help, and the idea that we’re resorting to creating a GoFundMe for help should tell you how worried we are about what’s ahead of us.

Any little bit helps. We understand that not everyone can help out with a donation, even sharing this page helps us out.

Thank you,
 The Smith Family.

Classic Episode: The Mist – WGT

This passed Tuesday my wife and occasional co-host Alia was in a very bad motorcycle accident and sustained some major injuries. In addition to some severe road rash Alia’s jaw was broken in two places and she broke a few teeth. Needless to say we were unable to record a new episode this week.

Rather than not release anything we decided to post one of our favorite episodes from the past. A Who Goes There classic, if you will. We’ll be back on schedule this Friday with our Scary Stories To Tell In The Dark episode. If you would like to contribute to the GoFundMe page to help cover Alia’s medical and dental bills, you can contribute here.

We appreciate all of the support we’ve gotten from all of you. We have a long road ahead of us, it’s nice knowing we don’t have to go alone. Thank you.

I’m not going to post a silly quote from a movie this week. I’m just going to use this space to once again say thank you. So, thank you.
