Colessia Porter  COLORADO SPRINGS, CO





I am Colessia Porter, This is my 29 year old brother Cordero Caples from Memphis TN. Cordero is in critical condition at Memorial Hospital in Colorado Springs after sustaining life threatening injuries Friday, November 20th, 2015,  from an electronic cigarette made by Kangertech. The Electronic cigarette exploded, and it broke Corderos’ neck, his tooth is knocked out; and he has facial fractures and burns to his mouth. He is expected to undergo spinal surgery today, November, 22, 1015.  The money raised in this gofundme will be put towards the medical expenses attained in this incident. ANYTHING will help. Please help us take care of our loved one, Cordero Caples.

Thank you.
