Madeline Torres-Martinez is organizing this fundraiser.
Hello everyone; let me first thank you for taking the time to look at this page, that means so much to me and my family; Thank You! I have decided to create this page on behalf of my son, PJ. My son was in a major accident last year, it was the scariest time of my life. I felt helpless, to see My son laying on that hospital bed in a comma, making decisions for him and praying that I made the right ones for his sake. The hardest one that I couldn't make, was when the doctor came to me and told me that his left leg needed to be amputated; I broke down and asked that they try to save it. My son finally woke up and the tubes came out, one of the happiest days of my life; I was so humble and grateful to My god for allowing my son a second chance, but we still had the leg situation to deal with among other things that at that time didn't seemed so difficult, after hearing my son talk and smile at me. The doctors assessed his leg again and determined that the left leg had to be amputated, that was the only option for him. The doctor told him that this would be "his good leg", since he is not able to feel his right leg and his foot dropped, however, One year later, My son has no medical insurance, has no prostetic, he has reached out to different government programs,but has been denied; This is why; we are reaching out to all of you, to ask for your assistance and give my son a second chance at a somewhat, normal life, to get back into the community and provide for his family, I ask that you help us, give him a new leg. Again I thank you for any little gift you may share with My son PJ.
