Fans raise $6,500 – and more – for Jim Duggan’s surgery

Just two days into his one month fundraiser to help him pay for his shoulder surgery, WWE Hall of Famer Hacksaw Jim Duggan managed to get all the money needed to cover the costs.

On November 5, Duggan posted an Indiegogo.com fundraising effort to come up with $6,500 to help him pay for shoulder surgery. The WWE Hall of Famer is suffering from a torn rotator cuff in his right shoulder and is in desperate need of surgery. “Without this surgery Hacksaw is severely limited in his range of motion and his ability to perform in the ring, which to this day is still his livelihood,” says the summary on the page.

Hacksaw hoped to raise $6,500 to completely fund the shoulder surgery but as of this writing, over $7,500 have been raised with 28 days left in the campaign.

In return of a donation, Duggan will be sending out perks including 8×10 autographed photos, a personal phone call, a t-shirt, a Skype video call, and one night stay at DDP’s Accountability Crib which Diamond Dallas Page donated. All perks will be fulfilled in April 2014.
