Prosthetics for Meningitis Survivor Ronell

Donation protected
UF IFAS Soil and Water Sciences graduate student Ronell S.H. Bridgemohan contracted neisseria meningitidis. (ie. that scary disease that can cross the blood-brain barrier that they warn you about when you’re going to college!) Through the goodness of the universe, he survived with his vibrant personality intact, however, complications included septicemia and multiple organ failure; heart, lung, kidney, liver. 


Vasopressors and purpura fulminans caused severe damage to his legs, feet and hands. He is currently undergoing daily wound care and limb salvation treatment while still continuing to pursue his graduate education! Despite vigorous wound care and multiple surgeries, doctors were forced to amputate several fingers and part of his left foot leaving him unable to walk.


To aid in his recovery and re-institute his independent mobility we’re collecting donations for his ongoing health care and to get prosthetics.
