Terry Hobbes is parent of three Shoreham-Wading River students (Sara, Jillian, and Ryan), as well as a fellow NYSUT member (he’s an English teacher in Commack).
On August 18th, Terry suffered a blood clot in his brain. After two rounds of surgery he is showing small signs of recovery (eyes opened, some toe and arm movement and signs of responding to verbal communication), but he and his family have a very long and difficult road ahead and are in need of support.
A Go Fund Me page has been set up to help the family – you can make a contribution by clicking here.
In addition, SWR athletes and coaches are selling t-shirts to help raise money for the family. T-Shirts are $15 each, and all proceeds go directly to the family (the supplier is providing them at cost). If you’d like to purchase one or more t-shirts, send this form, along with your payment, to Rob Verbeck at Wading River School.
