Fundraiser For Wil Riera

On Sunday, our dear friend freelance photojournalist Wil Riera was admitted into a hospital while working in Venezuela. He has undergone two emergency brain surgeries to correct a congenital disorder which has caused him to a have a brain

He is currently in a medically induced coma and the prognosis is uncertain. 

The funds collected through Go Fund Me will be sent to a personal family friend of his who is overseeing his finances while he is hospitalized with the consent of his family. 

The funds will be used to help alleviate the costs of any medical care not immediately covered by insurance. In addition, the money will be kept for future rehab, treatments, and daily life expenses as he rehabilitates. Since, he is a freelancer he is not receiving any income during his stay and his future is unclear. 

Wil is the sole caretaker for his family. We will be sharing some of the money with his parents to cover their basic needs. 

I have been Wil  Riera's assignment photo editor at Bloomberg News in New York  for over two years and have worked closely with him on a daily basis. Wil is an exceptional photographer and person. 

 Please give what you can -any amount is appreciated.

Help us spread the word.
