As you know our friend and neighbor, Carlos Buenadad, had a serious accident in November. He fractured his lumbar spine, underwent surgery and also had a broken arm. His family is in dire need of financial support to cover expenses due to his absence from work and medical bills. Thank you to all those who have supported this fundraiser in the past. Carlos has been receiving physical and occupational therapy in a rehabilitation facility for the past two months. The cast on his arm was removed recently and he is able to use both arms to gain upper body strength and learn how to transfer from his bed to a wheel chair. His therapists strongly recommend that Carlos acquires a custom-made wheel chair to help him progress to a more independent life style. I am updating this GOFUNDME to reach out to a larger audience to help defray the cost of this expensive piece of equipment. This week the neurosurgeon informed Carlos that the injury to his spinal cord was severe and unrepairable and that he will not walk again. Therefore, it is of utmost importance to help his family acquire the necessary medical equipment to make his life more comfortable and as independent as possible. Recently his family has located an apartment that will be handicapped accessible and hopefully they will be able to move in after the necessary modifications are made to accommodate a wheel chair. Carlos will remain in rehab for at least another month, but with an appropriate wheel chair he can make speedier progress in his rehabilitation. So please support this effort by spreading the word to friends and families and synagogues and churches and other local organizations.
