Hello friends and family! My name is DezaRae, and I am setting up this campaign for my uncle Ronald Babich.
To start this off properly I would like to tell you a little bit about my uncle. Uncle Ron is 53 years old and has been through more than you and I could even fathom. He has always been a loving son, friend, brother, you name it. He has worked hard his entire life to provide for his mom and sister, starting at a young he had to grow up quickly. In 2002, 48 hours after coming home from his honey moon. Uncle Ron was riding his Motor Cycle going to work and was hit by a drunk driver. As you can imagine his injuries were horrific and he was not expected to survive. When he awoke from the coma that he was in days later, he had severe memory loss from a traumatic brain injury. Fortunately my strong and amazing uncle did survive but he had a very long recovery and had to relearn everything. Eventually he was strong enough to leave the hospital but his life was forever changed. It didn't matter to him though. He had a family to take care of and that he did. Even if he couldn't have a traditional job from his injuries, he was still determined to be the provider he has always been.
Fast forward 18 years! He has found his soulmate and is set to marry her the weekend after Thanksgiving. As mentioned above, he has always done whatever he could to provide for his family. So, on October 9th of this year he was working a side job trying to save money for his upcoming wedding, and a honeymoon. While using the table saw, it malfunctioned and fed the wood through the machine too quickly, taking my uncle's hand with it. He was quick enough to get his hand out but not before almost losing three fingers on his left hand, severely injuring the other two. After successful reattachment and released from the hospital, he and his fiance headed home for a long recovery. The bad luck doesn't end there. On the way home they were rear ended in traffic, causing my uncle to injure his bad hand once again.
His fingers are reattached and doing well, but this is going to be a very long recovery. My uncle and his fiance now have a vehicle that needs to be repaired, a wedding to get ready for, all while dealing with lost wages from my uncle being out of work.
I decided to make this campaign for him because I truly can't think of anyone else more deserving than this man. After all he has been through he would still give you the shirt off his back, no questions asked. Any help, no matter how small would go a long way. Even if it was just prayers or well wishes my uncle and his fiance would be forever grateful.
Thank you guys in advance for anything donated, and any prayers sent to the big guy upstairs.
