Alejandro Albornoz Medical Fund

Alejandro had an accident during the US Open of Paragliding in Chelan on July 11, 2019.  As a result of hitting a dust devil while coming in for a landing he has a compound fracture of his Tib/Fib and a broken back.  He had to be med-evac to Seattle for surgery,

Alejandro is a great pilot, paragliding instructor, husband and father.  He move to the United States a few years ago to leave the oppressive government of Venezuela  and is living here under refugee status.  This has made it very difficult for the family over the years.  

Alejandro has an infectious smile and is always willing to help everyone in their flying and enjoying the beautiful sport of paragliding.

The treatment for Ale's injuries is going to be extremely expensive and take a long time for his recovery.  We have estimated that the initial costs will be at least $50K alone.  The likelihood is that i will be twice that number in the long run.

Please help us raise funds to help them cover their medical expenses and help with living expenses during this trying time for this wonderful family.  

Thoughts and prayers help, but donating helps even more.  It doesn't matter how much because every little bit helps.
