We are raising money for Robby Goss-Brichta who suffered a sudden brain injury/stroke on October 19th, 2017 due to a congenital arterio-vascular condition that he was not aware he had, which caused bleeding in his brain and subsequent brain damage.
Our goal is to raise funds to provide Robby a peace of mind so he can focus on recovery & rehabilitation and to not worry about his immediate financial obligations.
Robby is 35 years old and is a supervisor at Auto Zone, but anyone who knows him knows that, most of all, he is Daizy’s Daddy. Daizy is 16 and they are about as close as any father and daughter could be. Those who know Robby often say that he is so kind, giving and when he loves he loves deeply.
This horrific event occurred when he experienced a terrible headache, the worst her every felt. His twin brother Ricky witnessed his fall and was able to catch him and said it was immediately evident that he was having a stroke. He was transported to Kaiser, intubated, and was in a coma. Brain scans showed that he had a hemorrhage that was significant in size around his brain stem. The surgeons said that it was miraculous that he survived and then was able to breathe on his own after 2 days, then began moving his extremities and opening his eyes.
Robby is a true fighter and obviously has more life to live. It’s been determined that surgery is not an option to correct this condition but Robby is still determined to fight. Although he is able to think clearly, he has many neurological deficits to overcome. He has a long journey ahead of him and is aware that he will likely never be able to return to he life he knew before this stroke. Talking, feeding him self, walking, and even seeing are extremely difficult tasks for him. He is at high risk of having another stroke and is worried about how he will take care of his daughter’s immediate needs and provide for her future.
Please help us give Robby the peace of mind and assistance that he so desperately needs during this very difficult time. Any amount that you can give is greatly appreciated.
