Medical Cost for Hamzah Tarawneh

On Tuesday, October 2, 2018, Hamzah was driving, when he ran out of gas. As he was walking on the side of the road, in the direction of the nearest gas station, he was struck by a pickup truck. The driver of the truck did not stop. Instead, he sped away from the scene. Another driver thankfully witnessed the hit-and-run accident and called 911 while in pursuit of the black pick-up truck. Unfortunately, the witness could only write two of the license plate numbers down. The police are still searching for the black pick-up truck

As a result of the hit-and-run, Hamzah was left in critical condition for several days. He is currently in stable condition - in a sedative state - while on a ventilator to assist his breathing.

His road to recovery is predicted to be long and strenuous. Hamzah has already undergone leg surgery after his tibia was shattered in the accident. He also has ruptured blood vessels in his brain, causing mild swelling and pressure on his brain; a punctured lung; a lacerated liver; and road rash covering his body, which makes even the slightest of movements excruciating for Hamzah.

Hamzah is an open-minded, outgoing person who is loved by everyone who meets him. He is an incredibly loving person who leaves a smile on everyone's face.

We are asking everyone for support during this difficult time. Hamzah does not have medical insurance and will have substantial medical bills as he begins the healing process. Any contribution, small or large, will make an incredible difference to Hamza and his family as they prepare for the incredibly long road to recovery. All of the money raised will be used to cover Hamzah’s medicals bills, including, but not limited to, his hospital bill and therapy for his mobility.
