Mario's Recovery Fund

URGENT           Mario Ramirez from Hilton Head Island, SC was in a life threatening accident on the morning of April 17, 2018 and has a broken neck.  Mario is a cook at One Hot Mommas Restaurant on the island.  St. Patrick's Day was not a lucky day for him.  His mother, Iris in the photo (her formal name is Ruqayyah) has been a long time resident.  She also didn't have a good St. Patrick's Day.  Mario had surgery on his broken neck and broken leg at Memorial Hospital in Savannah, Georgia on 3/20 finally.  He is in ICU.  In order for the broken neck to heal he will HAVE to wear the metal brace which actually has screws going into his head for THREE MONTHS.    He will need constant 24-7 care.  There is exposure to health care costs but mostly loss of income for both Mario at 22 years of age and his Mother has loss of income between career changes.  Iris was between work having made some decisions to change her career.  She also has 5 children in total and her husband is the only breadwinner.  After much prayer Iris, myself as a good friend and her sister in law prayed on an amount and figured expenses.  If Iris works she will be hiring someone as a caregiver which will wipe her out.  If she stays home she will be the caregiver.  We are running this campaign to help Iris stay at her home and watch over her son who will be in this state for unable to move in this brace.  Its a very bad situation.  Mario is a very sweet man and he wants you all to know he thanks you for helping him and his Mom in any way you can.  He is on a lot of meds and while he still has his communication the pain is almost unbearable for him!  He was airlifted after the accident and the hospital has been great.  One lucky young man after all... God was not ready for him.  Won't you please help?  If you cannot help please SHARE, SHARE, SHARE to all your network of friends and to your groups!  We can do this!  We are using Go Fund Me because of its credibility and ability to reach a large number of people.  PLEASE SHARE AND CARE AND/OR MAKE AN EMERGENCY DONATION TODAY!  The every day bills are still coming in and we DO NOT WANT TO SEE THIS FAMILY LOSE THEIR HOME.  THANK YOU, THANK YOU AND GOD BLESS YOU ALL!  Iris can be reached at [phone redacted] voice or text.    Mario is in Room 560 at Memorial Hospital, Savannah Ga.  PLEASE PRAY FOR A GOOD RECOVERY FOR HIM     Aside from some help setting up this page Iris is the sole administrator for her new account.  28581220_15217440830_r.jpeg28581220_15217441140_r.jpeg28581220_15217441580_r.jpeg
