Help Juan Carlos Walk Again!

Last December 2nd 2017 our family got the devastated news that my dad Juan Carlos Hernandez had gotten into a very bad car accident on his way home from work. As a result of this horrible crash, he was seriously injured with a severe spinal cord injury leaving him paralyzed and unable to move his body shoulders down. My dad was airlifted to Jackson Memorial Ryder Trauma Center in critical condition fighting for his life that afternoon and stayed at the ICU for almost 2 months. A team of doctors met with the family to inform us that my dad’s condition was going to require a lot of therapy and medication. Also, we were told there was a high chance that my dad was never going to walk again and that he was going to need a lot of support from his friends and family. As you can imagine, my dad’s life has changed forever because he has always been an active and independent person well known for his good heart and enthusiasm not to mention his sense of humor that everybody loves. My dad came to this country following his heart and his dreams never knowing this will happen along the way. Our family would be forever grateful for any donation to help us cover his medical expenses during this difficult time.

Un equipo de doctors se reunió con nuestra familia para informarnos que la condición de mi padre iba a requerir muchisima terapia y medicinas. Tambien, nos informaron que habia un alto chance de que mi padre no pudiera volver a caminar y que iba a necesitar muchisimo apoyo de su familia y amigos. Como pueden imaginar la vida de mi padre ha cambiado para siempre ya que el siempre ha sido una persona activa e independiente muy conocido por su buen corazón y su entusiasmo sin dejar de mencionar su buen sentido del humor que tanto todo el mundo admira. Mi padre vino a este gran pais siguiendo su corazón y sus sueños sin saber que esto le sucederia en su camino. Nuestra familia les estará eternamente agradecida con cualquier donación que nos ayude con sus gastos medicos en esta dificil situación.
