“When we meet real tragedy in life, we can react in two ways--either by losing hope and falling into self-destructive habits, or by using the challenge to find our inner strength.”
Anyone that knows the name Kamil Sudol knows behind that man is great courage, an amazing character, selflessness and a wholehearted soul. Kamil was in a horrifying accident on August 3rd, 2020 leaving his body paralyzed from the chest down as a result of jumping into water he didn’t know was shallow while vacationing in Martha’s Vineyard. Kamil was airlifted to Massachusetts General Hospital where he is in critical condition with fractures to his vertebrae; facing severe injury to his spinal cord leaving his 20 year old body without any sensation and mobility immediately from his chest down, still remaining with some limited sensation in his arms.
Kamil was a great athlete at Mahopac High School playing football and lacrosse, and later touched many more lives at Mount Saint Mary College where he continued his Lacrosse career and studied Criminal Justice. Kamil has a monumental love of the outdoors. He loves hiking, biking, fishing, and any sort of adventure. His dreams to become a police officer and have a beautiful life are postponed for now.
Kamil will be facing many obstacles and treatments on his way to his desire of recovery. In preparation for the immense emotional and financial toll this will take on his family, we are looking to do everything possible to aid Kamil along his journey.
We are asking for any sort of gesture to help him and his family conquer this situation, and participation from you in his long journey. Hopefully we can celebrate one day his regain of what he has lost.
If you cannot donate, please pray and please share this in support of Kamil. He is a huge part of our lives and we are hoping to face this with strength, support, and in faith.
Thank you so much to The Butkiewicz Family, The Cohen Family, The Moreau Family, Deanna Marano, Paul Brooks (Brooksie), and Samantha Ann for their help with organizing this campaign; and thank you to those of you that decide to participate in supporting the cause.
