Help My Brother

My name is Christina Ponce. My brother Gabriel Ponce was found in the bushes on Jan 4 around 6:00 AM on the 91 fwy west exit off ramp on La Sierra in riverside. Authorities say it’s a hit and run, unfortunately I don’t believe that is entirely true. He has severe trauma to his head and his brain has suffered intense injuries. He is currently in critical condition and on life support at Riverside Community Hospital. No leg or body fractures but he has been unresponsive and doctors fear the worst. My little brother who is 22 years old has a kind heart and an amazing soul. He has had a very rough childhood struggling with divorced families and substance abuse problems but that never stopped him from being a good kid. No matter what struggles he faced in his life, he was always thoughtful and often gave more than he had to give. When they found him they found loafs and loafs of bread and a bag of pepperoni. Knowing my brother, I know he was going to give that to his homeless friends on the other side of the freeway. He just never made it. He has a big heart, a kind heart. He has always been the type of person to give to anyone he thought needed help, even tho most of the time he needed help himself. All I’m asking is for help for medical bills and other expenses that might occur. Anything will help and I thank you and my family thanks you from the bottom of our heart. We are hopefully my brother will come back. My handsome sweet little brother I love you Gabriel ❤️
