For those unaware, one of our own AxialMat was on the wrong end of a tragedy recently, more specifically his girlfriend.

She was a passenger in a vehicle in a car crash last Sunday that took two lives, including her best friend, and left her with a broken back

As you could imagine, this has placed a young couple in a considerable financial predicament and a gofundme page has been set up with a link below

So to whatever extent you can help out, follow the link and donate accordingly

We’re all with you Matt in wishing Gabrielle a full and speedy recovery

Good luck Matty, crossing everything for a speedy recovery and hope the support of this BigFooty family helps you both through this.

Hey Mate, awful news. Just do your best and remember to take some time to look after yourself. You can't help if you're burnt out.

I donated, it wasn't much but I hope a lot of people can donate not much so it can add up for you!

Working as a financial planner, I've had a number of clients whom I helped claim on insurance years after the injury/illness event or after policy lapsed because they weren't aware they had insurance cover as part of their superannuation policy.

AxialMat, check your girlfriends super statements, most people have default insurance cover that should provide at least some relief.
If industry super (CBus, Hostplus, HESTA, etc), there should be $2k p/m cover with a 2 year benefit, that will help with cash flow while she's not working (depending on severity of injury, TPD might be another option for a lump sum injection).
If retail super (AMP, BT, IOOF, etc), could be substantially more.

Next time I get off my ass I'll grab my wallet and flick you my weekly beer budget from my slush fund, mate. Try not to over think things at the moment. Hope you're feeling a bit better now you've seen your girl.

I donated on fri night and I will donate my multi winnings tonight if Freo win and I collect, I cant imagine what you and your girlfriend, and the family of her friend (and the family of the woman who was driving the other car) are going through Matty and I feel horrible.

I didnt even realise this was a thing until I got a letter about some government changes to super about a year or two ago. That your super will pay out a sum of money to your dependents if you either become disabled or if you die.
