Help João Pedro recover from head shot wound.

My name is Maciej and I started this fundraising to help João Pedro Marchezani, son of my dear friend Flavio in his long way to recovery.

João Pedro Has been shot in the head by carjackers down town Chicago.

João moved in with his girlfriend to their first apartament that they leased on Wednesday 09/01/21.

Couple was very happy and looking forward the bright future ahead.

On Saturday 09/04/21 João was traveling with his friends and girlfriend through Chicago area.
When they stopped at traffic lights, they were jumped by armed robbers.

Agressors opened fire when they were trying to drive off and one of 8 projectiles hit João in the head.

He is a student studying robotics engineering and not working a regular job so he has no health insurance plan.

João is connected to the respirator and had his bone in the skull cut out to prevent brain damage caused by swelling.

Please help us collect funds to help with medical bills and a long way recovery to come.

Thank you so much in advance for your support.
