Help Support Rob's Recovery

Just before midnight on June 17th, our dear friend Rob Latino was on his way home from work when a car crossed into his lane and hit him head on.

According to the official accident report from the police, they found the other driver at fault and noted that she admitted to having just left a party where she consumed alcohol.  Rob had to be rescued from his crushed vehicle with the Jaws of Life.  He sustained very serious injuries including a major head wound with a concussion, likely permanent damage to his left eye, and complete fractures to his pelvis and left arm.  Rob had to have major surgery and has months and months of grueling rehab ahead of him. He is wheelchair bound and can't put any weight on his leg at all for atleast another four weeks. He may still have to have surgery to repair the fractures in his arm. Obviously, he will be out of work for the foreseeable future and only time will tell what kind of long term effects this horrible accident will have. He has has been told it will probably be three months- and possibly much, much longer- before he sees any compensation and it is not known yet if the other driver was properly insured.  It goes without saying that the rest of this year will be very, very hard for Rob in all possible ways: physically, emotionally, and financially. Please be part of helping alleviate the trauma that this reckless driver has put Rob through.  He shouldn't have to be worried about things like medical bills while he is healing. Please consider donating whatever you can. Every little bit helps. Rob has helped everyone around him all his life; and it's our turn to help him. Through all of this he has expressed only concern for the well being of the driver who hit him- it was the first thing he asked the EMT's as they were trying to stop him from bleeding to death in his totaled car. He has faced every bit of pain and suffering with his perpetual positive demeanor and good humor. But I know he is hurting through this in so many ways. Please help to ease the burden. Thank you so much.
