Denny Ocasio Prosthetic Surgery

Dear Friends, Family, and Kind Supporters,

We need your help, I would like to share with you the story of Denny:

Denny is a sweet, amazing brave young boy of only 16 years old who was involved in a horrific car accident with his sister Elizabeth. They have endured an emotional and painful experience with this tragic event which nobody should go thru.  Elizabeth was driving Denny home after school on Friday evening when they were hit by another car. The driver of the oncoming car was speeding and crashed into Denny and Elizabeth, impacting them. Their car was pushed off the highway by exit 16 on I-95 where they ended up impacting a concrete wall at high speed. The incident was cause by someone who would not stop to help or even consider to check how they were. Without care or compassion the other driver ran off from the scene leaving them injured.  The accident caused Denny to lose more than half of his right arm. This event has changed his life forever. 

Denny’s dream has been to be an NBA player. He has always been an athletic young boy. He played basketball, soccer, boxing, baseball and participated in Ninja Warriors.  His biggest frustration is not being able to play basketball or play sports again. Therefore, we need your support to help Denny with a myolectric prosthetic arm surgery. As Denny is still 16 years old and because he is still developing the prosthetic limb will need to be change as his body grows. These prostheses need to be custom made for his arm and are extremely expensive.

 Your support will get us one step closer to helping Denny recover and get his surgery and give him the opportunity to play sports again. Please donate, and spread the word to people you would like to share Denny’s story with. Thank you in advance for your support in improving Denny’s life.

My name is Luz Esther Ocasio, I am Denny’s mom. We are from Puerto Rico and currently living in Miami, FL, were the accident took place.
