Lobo-co-creator, Roger Slifer. Slifer, who was struck by a hit-and-run white sedan in Santa Monica, Calif., on June 23, remains hospitalized and faces a very long recovery. He remains unconscious and unresponsive, a condition that may last for months…or longer.
As of last Friday, he was moved to Barlow Respiratory Hospital, a facility that specializes in respiratory issues. Slifer still cannot breathe on his own, but it is hoped that in 3-6 weeks he’ll be able to do that, and can start rehab in 3-6 months. Slifer’s sister-in-law, Emma, has further updates on his medical condition on Facebook.
The Hero Initiative is raising money to help with Slider’s care and has just spotlighted this great Lobo by Tone Rodriguez, which is now up on eBay.
The person who hit Slifer and changed his life forever remains at large. If you have any information, call the Santa Monica Police Department at 310-458-8495.
