This is just awful news.
One of the most famous Philadelphia Eagles fans has not only tested positive for the coronavirus but is fighting for his life right now.
Monty G, who is famous for his wing-flappin’ Eagles hat, went super viral on social media when he cried after a brutal loss to the Dallas Cowboys.
According to a GoFundMe set up for him, Monty G has been placed in an induced coma and required a tracheotomy surgery.
It reads as:
“Die-hard Philadelphia Eagles fan and beloved hype man Monty G has fallen victim to the COVID-19 crisis. For the last three weeks Monty has been at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania. At first he had trouble breathing, and after testing positive for COVID-19 was put in an induced coma and on a ventilator. Since then he has undergone tracheotomy surgery to help him breathe. Monty is now out of his coma, but at the moment can not speak….and is still fighting for his life. His long time girlfriend, Wanda, also tested positive for COVID-19. She has made a full recovery, and now is taking responsibility for managing Monty’s bills (including rent, utilities, and car payments) while Monty is in the hospital. It is her goal to have Monty return home and focus on his recovery without being burdened with the stress of his finances. It is our goal, my goal, all of Eagles Nation’s goal to help both Monty G and Wanda get back to normalcy once he returns home. Wanda is the sole beneficiary of these donations, is the only one who can withdraw, and any money donated is going directly to Monty G’s finances. While Monty G can not speak at the moment due to his tracheotomy….I hope he sees this and the generosity of Eagles fans…and knows WE HAVE YOUR BACK BABAY BAAAAABAY!”
The GoFundMe only asked for $1K, but has exceeded more than $4K as of Thursday evening.
He has plenty of supporters that have his back.
