Sammy Baptista Support Fund

Tech titan, switch-skating prodigy, and most importantly, great guy, Sammy Baptista was seriously injured and burned on over 40 percent of his body in an accident recently. He was in a medically-induced coma for 16 days. Sammy is facing a long recovery and also his wife just had a newborn baby. His friends and family have started a fund to help out in this difficult time.
