On July 12, 2017, My brother Lalo suffered a construction job related accident. He was remodeling a house and working on the roof removing debrie.
There was scaffolding around the house and wood planks used to walk and remove derbis via a wheelbarrow. As he was walking and pushing a wheel barrow filled with debris and without warring one of the wood planks moved causing him to lose his balance.
My brother Lalo plummeted down nine feet onto the ground landing on to his feet. After falling, he was assisted by some of his co-workers; he felt a strong pain on both of his ankles and was unable to walk.
A doctor who confirmed that he had fractured both of his ankles . The doctor casted the ankles and feet of my btother Lalo. The doctor recommended that he not walk on his feet for two months. After two months the doctor will asses his feet again to see how they are healing.
My brother Lalo beleves in working for what he has and has worked hard to provide for his family. He has never asked for any assistance. Since I know he would never ask for help I am asking for him.
We do not know how long it will be before he heals and is able to go back to work. The financial burden his family is facing from his loss of income is devasting and the medical bills and other expenses are mounting.
My brother Lalo's road to recovery is going to be long and expensive. Supporting my brother Lalo and his family with whatever you can give will help relieve the financial burden they are experiencing. Anything you can give would be greatly appreciated. With your financial assistance, Lalo and his family can focus on him getting healthy and strong.
Thank you very much!
