Tito's Spinal Cord Injury Recovery Fund
For those of you who know Tito and/or about him, you know that he does not have one bad bone in his body, he never has. He’s a sweet, genuine, caring spirit. He inspires us with his daily motivation that includes running marathons, fitness, and challenging himself to reach his highest self.
Tragically, on Friday, October 7th, Tito suffered a spinal cord injury during a workout when he was performing an overhead lift with a weight bar of 165 lbs. Unfortunately, during the second overhead lift, his body locked out causing the bar to fall directly onto his spine.
This incident caused T12 + L1 vertebral fracture, lumbar fracture with cord injury. He underwent spinal cord surgery immediately and remained in neuro ICU as it caused paralysis on his legs and several organs. He was transferred to inpatient rehabilitation where he currently is for a short amount of time; he will then continue his recovery with outpatient rehabilitation. It will be a long road to recovery but through all this, his spirit remains strong, determined and eager to advance as well as exceed every expectation possible.
As Tito will soon return home and continue his road to recovery, we are raising funds to assist with expenses insurance does not cover. 100 percent of donations will go toward Tito’s short term and long care needs as he recovers and leaves inpatient rehabilitation. Any amount is greatly appreciated.
Expenses includes modifications in the home to make it accessible, at home therapeutic equipment, wheelchair accessible equipments to utilize his needs, supplies for holistic therapies, physical health treatment, medical expenses and future transportation needs. If you know of any services that can help Tito in his recovery, please reach out to our mom, Vanessa or his sisters Jacqui & Feli.
Additionally, if you do not feel comfortable donating using GoFundMe, you can message us and we will work to find the best way for the funds to reach Tito.
Tito has been overwhelmed by the outpouring love, support, and encouragement from so many people and his family is grateful to each and every one of you. We are confident in Tito’s ability to overcome adversity and know that your thoughts, prayers, and support are driving him every single day.
