Thank you to everyone who has reached out already, Alex is a 17 year old High School student from Aptos. He and several friends were brutally attacked in their sleep on Sunday night. Alex has sustained major head trauma, a severe skull fracture and was placed into a medically induced coma after having multiple seizures en route to the hospital. He is currently stable after a lengthy brain surgery called a craniectomy, but his long term recovery is unknown, please pray for him and his family and the other families affected by this tragedy. He will be in the ICU for an extended period of time and the road ahead will be emotionally and physically grueling and of course also expensive. His family needs to be near him at the hospital and will need help covering costs for his ongoing medical care and their expenses to be away from work, travel expenses etc. If you are able to contribute the funds will be transferred to a local Bay Federal Account for Alex's care. I will post the account information as well for those who wish to contribute directly to the local bank instead of online.
