Jose's Medical Bills

On June 26th Jose went missing from Downtown Houston. For 5 days, family, and friends looked for him everywhere. With no sign of Jose, his family turned to Texas EquuSearch  for help. On the 5th day the group organized and went out on the search. 10 minutes before calling off the search one of the groups spotted a white bumper in a remote area in North Houston. They searched further into the wooded area. After some rough terrain, they were able to see Jose lying next to his totaled flipped car, almost life less.  He was quickly transferred to Memorial Herman Hospital in the Woodlands where he spent 18 days in the hospital. Due to the accident he was admitted for multiple injuries. He had a broken femur, multiple broken ribs, a broken nose, fractured vertebrate. In addition, due to the amount of time he was out in the wooded area by himself he was severely dehydrated which caused him to go into organ failure and developed anemia.  Even through all these injuries he miraculously managed to survive.  He now has a hard road ahead of him. Doctors predict he should be back to normal in about 6months to a year. As is expected, this long physical journey also comes with a very large medical bill. Jose still has to go to multiple doctor visits and attend many physical therapy sessions so he can regain his ability to walk.

We are asking for continued prayers for Jose and his road to recovery, along with any donations that you can give to help alleviate the cost of all the medicals bills. Any money that is raised through this gofundme account will be used for living expenses and medical bills.
