On 3-20-18, Nathaniel Flores and a couple of his co-workers from Phat Tire Bicycle shop in Bentonville, AR went on an open mountain bike group ride. Nathaniel CRASHED.
His co-workers found him face down and unconscious. 9-1-1 was called and the paramedics had to pull him off the mountain bike trail. He was taken to the hospital and once there, they did multiple tests and found out that he had a brain bleed, a fracture of his sinus cavity under his left eye and he also has a C1 fracture in his neck. The hospital transferred him to another hospital and they admitted him into ICU. Doctors said he could experience memory issues for up to 3 months, will have to wear his neck brace until it is determined he does not need any longer.
Nathaniel DOES NOT have insurance and as you can expect will have extremely high medical bills from both hospitals (multiple CT scans, ICU charges, ambulance ride X2, doctor's fees, etc) and will need physical therapy. Nathaniel will not be able to work for a while due to situation and he has other expenses that he must pay for.
Nathaniel puts others before himself and is always willing to help out anyone who needs it. Please lets help him as much as we can.
Please know all donations are extremely appreciated.
Nathaniel’s sister, Maritza Paredes, will be taking the funds to pay for his medical and medically related bills.
