When he reached up to grab toilet paper he was poked by a dirty needle. He went to the local ER in Gallup and they prescribed him anti-viral HIV drugs he has insurance but insurance won't cover the medication. He will have to pay over $1, 000 just to get the medication. I would like to raise $2, 500 for him so he can get the medication and also pay any other Medical expenses.+ Read More
This update is for my friend August 30th 2018. I spoke to my friend this morning. He is in good spirit and trying to get answers from Walmart. On August 29th he delivered a letter to the Gallup Walmart for the manager. When he delivered the letter he found out the manager who handled his incident report was no longer working there. The lady behind the service desk said they just barely got a new manager. My friend delivered his letter to that new manager. He wrote that letter to Walmart so he can get help with his medical expenses and also to pay for the HIV antiviral drug. Like stated in the news interview with KOB that drug will cost him over $1,000. My friend is also expected to be tested for the next 18 months for anything lying dormant when he was stuck by that needle. The reason I'm asking $2,500 in donations is that $1,005 is for the anti-viral drug. And the rest can be used for future doctor's visits for blood testing work. If any of the test come back positive he may also need the money for receiving medication. I would also like to thank the donors for making an effort to help him.
