11 year old boy attacked by dog in Wildwood nj

Friends, we need your help, please let me explain.  We are generating a GOFUNDME account to help 11-year-old boy who’s nose was horribly bitten by a Dog  while on the beach in Wildwood, New Jersey.    This is to provide financial support directly to the family for the many future expenses that will materialize

Their family has  always enjoyed and looked forward to a yearly vacation at the beach each summer.

The family choose to go Wildwood this year.

What happened to this boy ?

On the last day of vacation His mom, dad and his son went to the beach In the morning to watch
the sunrise before heading home.  As they walked down the beach, there was a encounter with a dog, that had attacked him, the dog had bitten him so hard, his nose was gone.  He was in serious condition.

How bad was He hurt ?

He was transferred and flown by helicopter to Children’s Hospital in Philadelphia.

Upon Arriving to CHOP, his parents learned that He would need a series of extensive operations to reconstruct his nose.

Why they need our help ?

The ride to Children’s Hospital from Their home is more than two hours one way to the Hospital.

In addition to the many surgeries, this little boy will need therapy to help survive the trauma of what happened to him.


The expenses are extensive and believe this to be a worthy cause.  Hope that you will agree.  

The funds raised will go to hospital bills, Surgeon costs, travel expenses, lodging, counseling cost,



Please kindly consider donating any amount to help meet these unexpected expenses and communicate support and love for This their son and family.

This year will be a challenging one for this family.


Please keep them in prayer and appreciate your kind consideration,

My husband and I have known them for close to 30 years.  They are very close friends of ours and our family.  My heart broke when I heard of this horrible situation.  I knew they would need not only love and support, but a lot of financial help.  This is why I started this Gofundme for them.  I thank all of you for opening your hearts and giving to this family
