David was the victim of a "Hit n Run" Driver. David, 17, was nearly killed the evening of April 3rd, 2012 While riding his bicycle during Spring break of last year. David was hit from behind by a car 'High-speed'. Neighbors found David all alone left to die, bloody, convulsing in the roadway next to his bicycle lodged beneath a parked car. The driver of that car cowardly sped off.. They have not yet been apprehended by police. David was a fantastic 'Artist', and was also an avid, 'BMX' bike rider whose dream was for 'Mountain Dew' to sponsor him someday. David never left his house without his bicycle. That has all changed due to this horrific 'Hit n Run' accident. This tragic accident significantly impacted Davids life forever. David suffered severe, massive traumatic brain injuries in his brainstem and to his higher brain functions from this accident. The person who did this to David remains at large.  David's chance of survival was a mere 10%, Doctors have taken him off of the ventilator this week. Improvement has been slow but steady. Davids 'WILL' to live and the love from all his family and friends pulled him through! David has a girlfriend who has not left his side. David is the love of her life and she's the love of his, which has by no doubt encouraged him to keep fighting the biggest battle of his life! David remains 'semi-consious', on a 'feeding tube' and in a 'wheel-chair' unable to speak.  His eyes do not fully open without him having to physically hold them to remain open due to the extent of his brain injuries. David was in a deep coma for over 6 months totally 'unresponsive' to everyone. Doctors gave up on David telling his mother "That it was selfish keeping him alive, when he had very little chance in improving". David DID survive and is slowllllly getting better, but could certainly use a little help from others. If anyone can please find it in their hearts in helping David's family in getting a "Wheelchair Accessible" Van in order for David to get to much needed Dr.,appts., Therapy, etc., just too get out in general esp., with the nicer warmer weather ahead. David has lost a full year of his life just being on 'life-support' in a deep coma for so long.  David needs to start rebuilding his life again. David is also in dire need for a 'Ramp' to be installed outside of his home for him to be able to get in and out of the house, which is really a BIG safety issue at this time. Depending on the amount of donations any left over money would go towards Davids 'Therapy' costs, which is very, very expensive. David was unable to receive any therapy due to Insurance reasons. Also, any 'extra' donations would go into the Citizens Crime Commissions reward fund.  There is a $1,000 reward for whomever is responsible in hitting David, but no one has yet come forward with any information. The city of Philadelphia has not helped David with anything when David needs desperate help! Davids family would be so forever grateful, and appreciative if someone could please try and help David. He really is one of the sweetest and kindest boys I know. Everyone who knows David personally,can testify in how he loved helping others in need..Can Davids friends and family now return the favor and try to help him? David needs ALL OF YOUR help more then ever!! His friends and family were his world. PLEASE EVERY single donation. It doesn't matter how small, EVERY bit will add up and help this GREAT cause! And I KNOW Davids mom couldn't 'thank you' ever enough for helping her son!! I 'sincerely' thank each and everyone of you near, and far, for being so kind in advance from the bottom of my heart <3  THANK -YOU!  PLEASE let this dream come true for David and his family! David loves each and every one of you!<3<3
