Rita Rodgers Pardo, my sister, husband Ben Pardo was in a horrible accident on July 5th. Ben is a truck driver and the accident happened in Newark, New Jersey. Ben has had 2 surgeries due to the extensive injuries from the accident. He fractured his femur in two spots, fractured his pelvic on both sides, heel fracture, fractures in his spine and broken ribs. He has a rod in his left leg to stabilize the femur fracture. He will still need another surgery for his heel injury. It Is unknown how long before he is stable enough to be transferred to a hospital close to home in Covington, GA. My sister is a stay at home wife and mother. She is taking care of 3 children (4 year old, 6 year old, and 17 year special need daughter with a lot of health issues of her own due to being born premature), while her husband is over-the-road truck driving. She was managing a home based business doing natural products. But since she is the only one managing the business, she closed it temporarily to be free to fly back and forth to check on her husband and children. My sister has health issues of her own which will require more surgery for her, which is limiting how much she can do as well. With the grace of God she keeps pushing through for her family. Because Ben was the bread winner for the family, she is needing money to be able to fly back and forth to check on her husband, hotel expense, food for her there and her kids. At the moment family and friends are helping her watch her kids. She will need money to maintain household expenses such as mortgage , utilities, copay, car payment, car insurance, day care, kids needs for school supplies and clothes. School starts back July 28, 2017. Someone will need to stay with her older daughter at home because due to health issues she can't attend school and has to be home school. Although we are hoping and praying he will be able move to Georgia , he will still need medical care and not able to work. If you can find it in your heart to help my sister out financially it would be greatly appreciated.
