Officer Daniel Rodriguez
My Name is Dereck Rodriguez and I am setting up this page on behalf of my brother, Officer Daniel Rodriguez and his wife Heather Rodriguez. Danny is an El Paso Police Officer who, while performing a Motorcycle Escort for a funeral procession, was involved in a motor vehicle accident. Danny sustained multiple injuries, some life threatening. Danny will be undergoing multiple procedures and surgeries. This fund is to ensure that while Danny is receiving the care he needs, this will reduce some of the unplanned financial hardships such as ensuring any gaps in pay are covered, insurance premiums are payed in time and cost of any medical equipment needed for recovery that may not be covered by his insurance.+ Read More
First and foremost we would like to thank everyone who has donated, shared, commented, or prayed for us, the overwhelming support of our community, family, and friends is both humbling and heart warming. Danny has undergone 5 surgeries in 3 days. Friday the dissected aorta was repaired along with 2 compound fractures of his left arm. Saturday the surgeon was able to repair extensive damage to his left leg from the thigh to the foot. Sunday he underwent spinal surgery as well as reconstructive surgery of his face. He is currently heavily sedated and intubated. We are hoping to be of the ventilator in the next couple days which will allow him to wake up. He is now stable and on the road to recovery. We have a long difficult road ahead of us with months of rehab and the possibility of more surgeries. The overwhelming support we have seen at this difficult time has touched the hearts of myself and our family and we are truly grateful.
