We led with this story during the last Storm Advisory, and we wanted to post it again. On Monday April 20, Carolina Thunderbirds player Michael Bunn was admitted to Moses Cone Hospital in Greensboro after suffering a hypoxic injury to the brain.

The team has put out t-shirts for sale to help with his recovery. More information about Bunn’s condition can be found here, and you can follow this link to purchase a t-shirt.

ABC 11 published this article a few days ago detailing the situation further and we encourage you to take a look at it.
