Lashawn Paulino Medical Expenses

On April 16, 2017, while on a family vacation in the Bahamas my nephew, Lashawn Paulino the Defensive End for the Saint Thomas Aquinas Raiders, was in a jet-skiing accident.  He was rushed to Rand Memorial Hospital in Freeport, Bahamas however they were not equipped for nor did they have the man power to treat his injuries and as a result he was airlifted to the Ryder Trauma Center at Jackson Memorial Hospital.  He is currently in stable condition and I have faith that the amazing staff at Ryder Trauma will take great care of him and have him back to himself in no time. I have started this gofundme account to help his parents raise the necessary funds needed to cover the unexpected medical expenses from this horrible accident. All prayers and donations are greatly appreciated. Please feel free to share this page far and wide. 

Lashawn has been through a great deal of turmoil for a kid. Growing up he was placed in multiple foster homes and in 2012, his mother passed away due to cancer.  He was adopted by my sister and brother-in-law and they have done a fantastic job thus far raising him and keeping him on the right path. He is a gigantic teddy bear with a sweet spirit, who’s favorite bible verse is “For I know the plans I have for your declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to HARM you, plans to give you HOPE and a FUTURE” Jeremiah 29:11.  He knows that God has amazing plans for him and keeps reminding us all to STAY STRONG for him.  We are a faith-filled family and know that all things are possible through God, and I know that this jet-skiing accident will not break my nephew because he is a child of God and VICTORY is his name, so he will get through this.  The Bible says that “If two of you on earth agree about anything they ask for, it will be done for them by my Father in heaven” in Matthew 18:19. So, today I am asking everyone that reads this to pray for his timely recovery and to share his page.

I will use this page to update everyone on his daily health status.  If you have any questions or need any information, please feel free to email [email redacted].  In the meantime, please continue to pray for his quick recovery and share this page to help us raise the necessary funds for his medical expenses.  Thank you in advance for your prayers and donations.

Be Blessed,
