We ask with a sincere heart, for help to raise enough money to cover the funeral expenses for Jose Maltez-Benitez.
Jose was the victim of a Hit And Run while crossing the street on New Hampshire and Metzerott Rd in Adelphi MD on June 23rd 2019. He was taken to the trauma unit in MedStar Washington Hospital, were he remained in a coma for 2 weeks. He woke up from the coma and was put on life support for several weeks. He under went several surgeries and had traumatic brain injury, a fractured spine, ribs, hips and knees. Jose had to keep undergoing spine surgery and ended up getting MRSA in the hospital. He was on antibiotics for a couple of weeks and was discharged from the hospital to a rehab center on September 2019. Sadly in the rehabilitation center he got very ill with pneumonia and sepsis and ended up back in the hospital and was required to take antibiotics. He was discharge from the hospital and went back to a rehab center where he passed away November 25th 2019. In all these months, the driver still has not been found. His only daughter has had to cover several medical bills and other travel expenses as she lives outside of the state. Janet lost her last living parent, and would appreciate your support during these difficult times. May God bless and multiply all that you give!
