On April 24, my nephew Mason was struck by a taxi on his way to school while he was crossing the street with my mother. They had the right away to cross, however, a taxi driver sped through and hit him. The taxi driver proceeded to run him over and fled the scene. He was rushed to the hospital where doctors stated he had a broken leg and had fractured his skull. Mason has undergone two surgeries for both injuries and remains in the hospital. He has cast on his leg and will not be able to walk for 4-6 weeks. He will also have to undergo extensive physical therapy to help him walk.
As a result, Mason remains very frightened and anxious from this traumatic experience. We are still not sure when Mason can come home.
We are extremely fortunate Mason is alive after this terrible incident. We are asking for donations to help support Mason as his mother will be staying home and taking care of him during his healing process. Because she cannot return to work until he is better, we are hoping to raise donations to relieve financial stress during this difficult time.
Anything helps, we are extremely thankful. Please feel free to share with family and friends. Thank you.https://abc7ny.com/mom-2-year-old-son-struck-by-taxi-in-queens-hit-and-run/5272399/
