Kevin's Family and Friends
on behalf of Lucyna Paloc
On March 9th, Kevin Kulaga sustained an injury after diving into a pool on vacation in Florida, that left him with a spinal cord injury at the C5 level. After emergency surgery, doctors are still unsure as to how Kevin will recover from the injury but it is likely that he will never walk again.  The accident occurred in Florida. His parents, Lucyna and Mariusz, flew there immediately and have been by his side. A lot of unknowns exist, but the road of rehabilitation and adjustment will be long and daunting.

As Kevin's family and friends we are all devastated and heartbroken. As soon as possible, he will have to be medically transported to New Jersey. We are hoping to raise enough funds to fly Kevin home to New Jersey and help with other medical costs to ease pressure on his family during this difficult time. Please consider helping us get Kevin home.

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your generosity.

UPDATE: The response was been amazing! You have all created a beautiful movement and the community support and love truly speaks volumes. As the first goal is being approached, we are hoping to raise a little bit more and are increasing the goal. Everyone knows the tremendous costs associated with medical care in this country, and how stressful that can be on a family. Every little bit counts and we thank you tremendously for the ongoing support, prayers, and love.

Update (3/19/2019):
Kevin is doing considerably well. He is in extremely high spirits and calls this tragic accident a hiccup in the road. Kevin is constantly surrounded by family and friends. He is regaining feelings in his arms and is able to use them more and more. He and his family thank everyone who has reached out to them, kept them in their prayers, and are supporting them through this difficult time. The amount of community love and support is astounding and beautiful. If all goes well, Kevin will be flown to Kessler Rehabilitation Center in New Jersey where he will be closer to home. Once there, he will start the long and difficult process of recovery. Please continue sharing and donating to help ease the financial burden on the Kulaga-Paloc family.

On behalf of Kulaga-Paloc Family, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts
