Medical and life expenses for Wilkins "el Clasico"

Friends and Family,

Our dear Wilkins Reyes Rivas, also known as “Clasico” suffered a serious motorcycle fall on Saturday June 5, 2021 near the Fort Erie area. As a result, he was air lifted to the hospital after being non-responsive and in critical condition. Wilkins, a loving father, partner, and friend is currently on life support. He suffered bleeding and trauma to his head, a neck injury and several fractures on his right leg, ankle and foot.

For those of you that have known him, you know he is a loyal friend, a loving Papa to his beautiful 7-month-old baby girl, and that he has a love for motorcycles. However, this time, his love for the 2-wheel lifestyle almost costed him his life, and he remains at-risk.

We are devastated, but we are hopeful that with the grace of God, he will recover. As you may know, Wilkins is originally from Dominican Republic, and came to Canada from Madrid, Spain. He currently does not have OHIP (health coverage). This means his family will have to be responsible for covering the cost of all his medical procedures, including the airlift and surgeries, as well as the cost of his recovery. The medical expenses to this day amount to approximately $50,000 and will continue to increase with each day Wilkins remains in the ICU.

We appreciate your calls, and your offers to help. We ask that if you can, you help Clasico with his recovery by contributing to this GoFundMe. Anything will help. We also understand that these are challenging times for everyone, so we will be grateful if you can keep him in your prayers.

We recognize that by the grace of God, Wilkins is still alive. We ask that you stay safe on the road and if you choose to ride, you ride with care and caution. God Bless you.

 

Amigos y Familia,

Nuestro querido Wilkins Reyes Rivas, o mejor conocido como “Clasico” sufrio un grave accidente de motocicleta el Sabado 5 de Junio del 2021, cerca de Fort Erie. Como resultado, Wilkins fue trasladado en helicopteor hasta el hospital ya que se encontraba inconciente y en condicion critica. Wilkins, un buen padre de familia, compañero y amigo, hoy se encuentra con soporte vital. Tras el accidente, sufrio sangramiento y trauma cerebral, una lesion en su cuello, y fracturas en su pierna, tobillo y pie derecho.

Para los que han tenido la oportunidad de conocer a Wilkins, saben que es un amigo leal, un padre que adora a su bebe de solo 7 meses, y que siempre ha sentido gran pasion por las motocicletas, o el motor como el lo llama. Sin embargo, esta vez, su pasion por las motos casi le cuesta su vida, y sigue  en riesgo.

Como familia estamos devastados, pero tenenos la Esperanza que con el favor de Dios, Wilkins se recuperara. Como sabran, Wilkins es originalmente de Republica Dominicana, y llego a Canada desde Madrid, España. Actualmente, el no tiene OHIP o cobertura medica. Por lo tanto, su familia tendra que hacerce responsible de todos los gastos medicos, incluyendo gastos de cirugias, mas los gastos de su recuperacion. Actualmente, los gastos medicos son aproximadamente $50,000 e incrementaran con cada dia que Wilkins siga en la UCI.

Agradecemos de todo corazon sus llamadas, y preocupacion. Les pedimos que si pueden nos ayuden con la recuperacion de el Clasico y contribuyan a esta campaña. Cualquier ayuda sera util. Tambien entendemos que estos son tiempos dificiles para todos, a si que estaremos muy agradecidos si nos ayudan a orar por Wilkins y su pronta recuperacion.

Sabemos que gracias a Dios, Wilkins sigue con nosotros. Les pedimos que conduzcan con cuidado. Bendiciones.
