Those “normal” days were the best for Israel. Friends would ask for help moving furniture, giving them a ride, or running things back and forth at his job. Then November 1st, 2015 came around. That day started with Israel getting his uniform ready, made sure shaved, made sure his mom was enjoying her birthday weekend. Israel went to work that day and went home. Shortly after getting home, Israel and his neighbors car were being broken into. And as Israel saw what was going on, Israel was shot 8 times by one of the burglars. Israel thought that might have been his time to go, but he’s still on Earth and breathing. Due to serious injury Israel sustained, he is confined to a wheelchair.
Israel goes to therapy on a regular basis and actually enjoys it. With all the hard work that Israel has put in, he has gained some strength back and little by little getting stronger. Israel remains positive and strong, even though we know his struggles and setbacks. Israel always says, “I don’t have time to complain, i have time to get better.” And so he works hard. This fundraiser is to help Israel raise money for a procedure that he is very excited about and blessed for. Although insurance covers some of it, there’s a big portion that Israel needs all of our help. Let’s all help him get back on his feet and make his dream come true. If any of you know Israel, you all would know that he will do the same thing for you, never asked anything in return, his answer is always, “Sure bro, what do you need help with?” Let’s show Israel the love he deserves and let’s get his literally back on his feet.
