Christian's Road to Recovery

In the blink of an eye someone’s world can turn upside down and that’s exactly what happened on Saturday September 29 at 2:20 A.M. when tragedy hit our family.  Three brothers were involved in a severe car crash that resulted in the hospitalization of all 3 (ages 18, 19, and 20).  Raised by a single mother, the tragedy of having 3 out of her 5 sons hospitalized has left her shaken and feeling vulnerable and not to mention concerned about the hospital bills that are to come.

Rudy the oldest received minor injuries and was able to walk out with minimal scratches. Fabian walked away with face lacerations and minor body injuries that will forever leave a memory of this tragic event. Christian the youngest sustained the most severe injuries. He was taken to Kaweah Delta ER where they determined he had suffered multiple fractures to his face, a collapsed lung, and a severe fracture to his skull, which required immediate attention.  He was rushed to the OR after it was discovered that he had sustained internal bleeding in his brain and swelling. Due to his critical condition he was air lifted to CRMC a level 1 trauma center in Fresno. He has had two procedures but multiple still ahead of him. He is currently intubated and heavily sedated in the ICU in order to help assist with the intracranial pressure in his brain.

Once he is stable enough to leave the ICU he will need rehab and physical therapy for months to come in order to regain back his strength and attempt to return to a normal life. Christian is a recent graduate from Exeter High school (C/O 2018) and is attending College of the Sequoias in hope to complete a degree in Criminology to pursue a career in law enforcement.

He has a long road to recovery ahead of himself and the family would greatly appreciate the monetary help.  Please feel free to donate if possible and keep Christian and his family in your thoughts and prayers as we pray for Christian’s Road to Recovery.
