Gabe’s Recovery Fund

On Tuesday, September 25, 2018, Gabriel suffered a horrible accident. He fell from a roof 30ft high (3 stories) suffering some significant injuries to his body. His left clavicle and shoulder blade broke, elbow completely shattered and had to be replaced, his forearm and wrist shattered as well, it severed nerves and he’s lost 70% of the feeling and movement in his left hand because of it. His hip is completely broken, his left femur broke in half and was replaced with a rod, his left knee has a torn ligament, all ribs are broken and 3 surgeries so far and more surgery down the road. He will be in rehab for the next 2-3 months. Due to the severity of his injuries he will be out of work for some time. We will need to move to a wheelchair accessible home soon. Money matters have always been uncomfortable for me. I’ve had to learn to ask for help which is difficult for me. Whether it’s with the kids, or a meal, or a cab. With the long road ahead, with much advisement, and with a great deal of humility I’m reaching out to the masses. Any help is help. Everyone says I’m the strongest woman they know. I’ve had to learn that strength isn’t always doing it alone. It takes a villiage sometimes. I’ve found strength in my support system. I’ve found strength in saying “this is too much for me.” Every little bit is more than what we started with. Every little bit is generous, kind, and immensely appreciated!!! God bless you all!
