Jesus Rega 21, with severe autism and non Verbal, was tragically wounded in the head by a bullet and grazed on the side of his stomach by another while he waited for the school bus with his dad and brother who also has severe autism. Jesus will be in the neuro ICU for weeks and will then undergo another head surgery.
He has a long road to recovery, so you can imagine how this will forever impact his and his family's life.
We are hoping his vision is not too affected by this as he uses vision boards to communicate.
Before this horrific event, Jesus loved being with his family, schoolmates, and teachers. He is such a happy loving person. He also loves watching his favorite videos on youtube. Shrek, wrestling, and SpongeBob are a few of his favorites. Jesus is expected to graduate at the end of this school year. We’re hoping he can cross the stage with his friends.
This fundraiser is to help Jesus with any expenses that will come of this, along with helping his family get to and from the hospital to be at his bedside. We are also looking to relocate the family to get them out of an unsafe area.
If you can share this fundraiser with your friends by clicking the “share“ option after your donation, it would mean so much to meet our goals for Jesus and his family. The more people that hear his story will help us to reach our goals.
Be blessed and thank you.
