Ronacin passed away peacefully on Saturday, 1/21/17 surrounded by his family and close friends. Below is his story:
I need prayers for my brother Ronacin who just arrived from the Philippines in August. Today, Friday, January 13th, He was hit by an suv while on his bike at around 3:00 pm - 3:15 pm on MLK and Graham St. He was thrown from his bike and his head hit the pavement really hard. He is in critical condition right now. He has an extensive blood clot on the right side of his brain, and a fractured spine. They will be bringing him to surgery now. He was leaving McDonald's (his first job) to go home and change to get to his 2nd job at the University of Washington. Unfortunately he never made it home. I got a phone call from one of his coworkers who told me what happened so I rushed to Harborview Medical Center.
Ronacin came here for a better life to provide for his 5 kids in the Philippines. The mother of his children passed away during the time of the Yolanda (Haiyan) typhoon that hit the Philippines in 2013. So his grandmother who is 84 years old, is the one taking care of his children. He worked 2 jobs with only a 15 minutes to come home and change and get on the light rail to head to UW. He has no health insurance because he is still in the probation period at his job at UW.
Any little amount will help. Money donated will be used to help pay any medical expenses and support sent to his children in the Philippines.
Thanks for taking the time to read. Anything small or big will help.

Update as of 1/21/17:
Today at 7:50 pm, Ronacin passed away. I have changed the title of this GoFundMe due to the nature of his passing. Thank you all for sharing, praying, well wishes and donations.
I plan on keeping this updated until we are able to bury back in the Philippines to be close to his children.
