Help us help our dad.

On September 9th 2018, our lives were changed in a blink of an eye. Our father Captain Vincent John D’Ambra of the Providence, Rhode Island Fire Department was the victim of a horrific motorcycle accident which led to a traumatic spinal cord injury that we are now learning will change our lives forever. He is currently hospitalized in a trauma intensive care unit outside of Boston, Massachusetts and had to have extensive surgery and will probably require many more. He will be in the hospital for a few months and then will have to go live at a rehab facility in Boston which is far away from his home in Rhode Island due to his extensive injuries. He will be at rehab for probably well over a year. He will be forced to retire from his job on the Providence Fire Department where he works as a rescue captain. This will result in a devastating and financial burden for my mother, Lisa D'Ambra who is an ER nurse. My name is Morgan and I am 16 years old. I have two sisters Charlotte, age 15, and Lucy, age 11, and a brother Vincent, age 8. We live in southern Rhode Island and now have to travel back and forth to Massachusetts with our mother Lisa D'Ambra daily in order to visit with our dad as he is receiving long term rehab. Any help big or small would mean so much to my siblings and I. At the present time my mom has had to take an unpaid leave from work to help my dad get through this difficult time. All of the raised funds from donations will be utilized to assist our family in our dad's long term care and unpaid medical expenses. We are so appreciative of everybody’s thoughts, prayers, and support god bless.
