Keep the Promise

Erwin is an incredibly hard-working and motivated senior at Stamford High School in Stamford, Connecticut. He has never had things easy, and has always risen to meet any challenge presented to him. In his few short years in the United States, he has managed to learn English so well that he has become a mentor to others and has earned grades worthy of membership to the National Honor Society. He is the type of student who spends his study hall volunteering to help students in other classrooms and frequently tutors students at a local elementary school.

Two days after Christmas 2017, Erwin was at work at a restaurant when a car plowed through the wall resulting in his leg getting badly damaged. Erwin was brought to the hospital where he had to have his leg amputated.

Life has presented Erwin with another challenge. If there is anybody who can rise to meet such a challenge it is Erwin. However, he will need the collective support of all of us. This go fund me page has been established to be able to provide Erwin with some financial support for the long road to recovery that lies ahead of this incredible young man.

Erwin es un estudiante de último año, de escuela secundaria increíblemente trabajador y motivado en Stamford High School en Stamford, Connecticut. Nunca ha tenido las cosas fáciles, y siempre se ha levantado para enfrentar cualquier desafío que se le presente. En sus pocos años en los Estados Unidos, ha logrado aprender inglés tan bien que se ha convertido en un mentor para otros y ha obtenido calificaciones dignas de membresía en la National Honor Society. Él es el tipo de estudiante que pasa su periodo libre en la escuela como voluntario para ayudar a los estudiantes en otras escuelas y con frecuencia es tutor para estudiantes en una escuela primaria local.

Dos días después de la Navidad de 2017, Erwin estaba trabajando en un restaurante cuando un automóvil se estrelló contra la pared y la pierna resultó gravemente dañada. Erwin fue llevado al hospital donde le tuvieron que amputar la pierna.

La vida le ha presentado a Erwin otro desafío. Si hay alguien que puede levantarse para enfrentar tal desafío, es Erwin. Sin embargo, necesitará el apoyo colectivo de todos nosotros. Esta página de Go Fund Me se ha establecido para poder brindarle a Erwin algún apoyo financiero para el largo camino hacia la recuperación que se encuentra por delante de este increíble joven.
