Arafat lit a firework that appeared to be a dud. After lighting the fuse, the firework did not explode. He stuck his hand down the tube to pull the firework out. As he grabed the firework, it detonated severing his hand at the wrist.
He was lifefilghted to a hospitail in Toledo Ohio where doctors attempted to save his hand; however, they failed and Arafat's hand was amputated at the wrist.
His parents did not have medical insurance at the time of the accident so the doctors wraped his arm and sent them on their way.
Arafat is in need of a prosthetic hand. He is unable to do the things that we take for granted like tying our shoes, or cutting our food.
His parents can't afford to buy him a prosthetic hand; however, as a community if eveyone donates what they can afford, we can help this kid lead a normal life.
Advanced Arm Dynamics quoted the hand after discounts at $128,785.50.
A 50% deposit is required prior to the start of the fitting process. The remaining balance will be due at the time the prosthesis is delivered to him.
I know this is a large amount of money, but we are a large community of friends and family. Together if everyone chips in we can help make this kid's future bright again.
