WORCS Rider John Rikerd #514

WORCS Racing received this note from the Rikerd family yesterday...

Jason Reed- WORCS Racing

I JUST WANTED TO GIVE EVERYONE IN THE WORCS FAMILY A HEADSUP. A-CLASS ATV RACER JOHN RIKERD #514 WAS SUFFERING SEVERE LEG AND BACK PAIN. HE HAD A MRI. MRI SHOWED A LARGE TUMOR IN HIS SPINAL CANAL.
HE WAS RUSHED TO A NEUROSURGEON IN S. CALIFORNIA AND RUSHED INTO SURGERY. AFTER A LONG AND INTENSIVE SURGERY THE SURGEON WAS ABLE TO REMOVE THE LARGE MASS. TUMOR WAS NOT CANCEROUS,PRAISE GOD!
DUE TO THE SIZE OF THE TUMOR A LOT OF NERVES HAD TO BE REMOVED ALONG WITH THE MASS. THE SURGEON BELIEVED JOHN WOULD HAVE TO WALK WITH A CANE THE REST OF HIS LIFE, DUE TO NERVE DAMAGE. IT'S BEEN TWO WEEKS SINCE SURGERY AND JOHN IS MAKING A PHENOMENAL RECOVERY. HE DOES NOT NEED A WALKER OR A CANE AND IS UP AND ABOUT. AMAZING.
AFTER A FEW MONTHS OF PHYSICAL THERAPY HE SHOULD BE CLOSE TO ONE HUNDRED PRECENT. BEING A DEDICATED WORCS RACER IT WILL BE HARD TO KEEP HIM AWAY THE REST OF THE SEASON. WITH JOHN'S FIGHT AND COMMITMENT, I KNOW YOU WILL BE SEEING THE RIKERD FAMILY BACK RACING IN 2009 SEASON.
THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR PROVIDING SUCH A REMARKABLE RACING SERIES. WE LOVE IT AND WILL SEE YOU ALL AGAIN SOON.

THANK YOU, THE RIKERD FAMILY
