Gabriel Rodriguez's Get Well Soon

As you all know, Gabriel is an incredibly positive and huge hearted individual with a bigger than life personality who is liked and loved by everyone... Last Thursday, June 29th Gabe was walking his 2 dogs through the park near his new apartment in Uptown with his roomate around 11 p.m. and one got loose running towards a stranger. The stranger was apparently not a fan of dogs and seemed extremely agitated and from what Gabe could rememeber, seemed really off mentally. Gabriel walked over to secure the leash on his dog and was attacked. He was stabbed 7 times with a lot of organ damage and nerve damage done as a result. The fortuante part of all of this, is that true to Gabriels unbelievably positive outlook on life, his spirit wasn't harmed. This helps greatly in  his journey to heal moving forward. Unfortuanately this leaves Gabriel unable to work as he heals, surgeries he's undergoing, as well as unforseen medical and finacial issues he will have to face in the next coming months. Since this is the case, please help if you can... even $5,10 or $20 adds up fast with all those who care and love this amazing man. Many Thanks to all who have read this and choose to help in any way possible.
