Help Luis Tavarez

Anyone who knows Luis aka "Fatty" knows that he's a good friend and is always willing to help his family & friends in times of need. He's the type of person to rarely ask for much and is always willing to give. 

Luis has been an avid snowboarder for the last ten years. It's his passion and favorite hobby. Unfortunately, tragedy struck on February 1st when Luis was snowboarding with some friends in Vermont. On his last run of the day, Luis was going off a jump and did not land it as planned. The landing impacted his legs which caused two broken femurs. 

He was then flown by helicopter to Albany Medical Center for emergency surgery and treatment where he spent a week on bed rest. He has now been brought to a rehabilitation facility in Connecticut where he will begin therapy. 

As a result, Luis will be incurring medical expenses and also will be out of work. Any funds that loved ones and friends can provide during this time of need will be very much appreciated and will contribute to easing the financial burden that is to come in the next few months. Any amount will help, we thank you in advance! In addition to any financial support you can provide, please reach out to Luis and visit him as he will be recovering for the next few months.
