Helping Anthony

$10,476 of $15,000 goal

Raised by 204 people in 19 days
A little less than a year ago, my 23 year old nephew graduated from the NYFD EMT program.  A few months later his first born would turn 1, and Anthony would embark on a new journey to further his education with the NYFD program to become a Drill Instructor for the EMT program.  As you can imagine, between being a new father, working full time and going to school, Anthony hasnt had much time outside of those things for rest and recovery. He is no stranger to adversity, but you would never know it because he is always humble, and always with a smile. We're talking about a dedicated, loving, big hearted young man with aspirations and the drive to take his responsibilities to build a beautiful future for his family and provide for his son.  We can all agree that our Anthony loves his family more than anything else in this world.


Anthony and his son, Anthony Jr.


This past Sunday, January 28, 2018 at around 4am, Anthony was involved in a near fatal accident.  When the paramedics and FD arrived on the scene Anthony was unconscious and the car so badly damaged that he needed to be cut out of it.  He suffered a lot of head trauma and blood loss, and is currently at Kings County hospital, still with high hopes and a smile.  We are so fortunate that things were not worse.  He has mobility, he is alert, and though he is in pain, he is in decent spirits considering he  will have permanent  reminders of that moment.  I purposefully did not post pictures of his injuries out of respect for the situation as it is still a shock for him.

This go fund me is being created by his family to alleviate some of the pressures that will come from him missing out on work and his classes, medical bills, and being able to keep afloat for his baby and his family during this tough time.  No amount is too small.  There is an option to leave your donation anonymously.  Lets be here for Anthony.  Prayers Up.  Please share the post. Thank you for your help.



Anthony, His Mother Trisha, and sister Mariah.

Hi everyone, this is Anthony. I wanted to come on here to say thank you for the support and update you guys on my status. I’m doing fine and am going through therapy now. Therapy is very intense but I’m taking it day by day. I’m suffering from a small micro bleed and bruising to my brain. Because of it, I’ve been stuttering in my speech, having some short term memory lost, lots of weakness in my legs and have been unable to get my thoughts together right away. The other day I was supposed to get my stitches out, and while they were going in, they found some clotting and fluid buildup, so they had to put me under and do a little surgery to install a shunt to drain the wound. I went from stitches to staples smh. Regardless, I’m hopeful though that things are getting better and progress is being made. I’m just ready to leave this hospital. The visits from my friends, family and the fire department is what’s motivating me to push my self harder and get better. For that I am so grateful to have the support system that I do. You never realize how far a little kindness can go, and I am blessed to have you all in my life. Thank you for your prayers, your support, and for keeping me going.

Hi everyone, on behalf of my sister, Anthony's Mom Trisha, here is an update:

Hi all. This is Anthony's mother Trisha. Let me start by saying that I appreciate all the love and support that you guys have sent, whether through texts, calls, emails, the donations and words of encouragement here. I really haven't had the time to come on here because I am going through a lot emotionally and mentally, and if I'm going through that jus imagine what my son Anthony has to deal with. Just a little update on his progress. He had an MRI done and it came back that he has brain micro bleeding symptoms. The symptoms are the same as a severe concussion, so blurred vision, sensitivity to light, struggle with speech, headaches, and other things that are revealing themselves as time goes on. This is a lot and I ask each and everyone of you to continue to pray for him, He has a long road ahead, and I will continue to be the strong person I know I can be so that my son can beat this. 100 Percent. Again, thank you all. I will try to do my best to keep you guys in the loop with everything that's going on. Love you guys. Anthony's IG handle is @bizzythegod if you want to reach out and send some words of encouragement directly. Thank you.
