King-Aaden & The Rivera Family

I'm sure many of you have seen this portrait of my beautiful family, it went viral on the web. Well, on September 15, 2014 our 3 year old baby boy King-Aaden Rivera (pictured on the bottom right) was in a horrific car accident with his three cousins on the way to school. King suffered severe head trauma from his head hitting the concrete and his scalp half removed from his skull. King was revived twice at the hospital and doctors did not expect for him to make it through the night, but by the grace of God he did and has been fighting every since. In the midst of our time at GRU Hospital in Augusta, Ga., our only daughter Paisley Grayce Rivera (pictured on the bottom) who was born with a dilated kidney, had to have her kidney completely removed and has made a full recovery. While we have been so blessed to have all of our children still here and King-Aaden fighting for his precious life, our funds have been depleted. From travel, and my wife owning her own Hair Salon, has not been able to work and have any income coming in other than myself. I've never been one to ask for much, but I'm asking for your help now, so if you can afford to give please do so, and if not please say a prayer for our beautiful boy and our family. Love you all, and thanks in advance.
