Hello, I’m Elizabeth the mother of Victor, an 18-year-old boy who was in a near fatal car accident on a on April 30th, 2017 on a sunny Sunday afternoon.
You never expect to have a sheriff come to your house and ask you to come with them because your child has been involved in an accident and is in critical condition at the hospital. He was rushed to the hospital for emergency spinal and lung surgery. After the surgery, we were told there was a chance that he might be paralyzed on his left side. Once stabilized his other injuries were identified, which included a broken left arm, leg and extensive injuries to his internal organs. At this point we reach out to our family and friends asking for prayers for him.
The surgeries were successful. After a week in ICU he showed significant improvement and was move into a regular hospital room. The swelling in his body decreased which allowed him to begin to have feeling on his right side again. A couple of days later he began feeling sensations on his left side. Prayers continued without stop from all parts of the globe.
In the beginning, we were told that this type of injury requires hospitalization for at least 6 months or more. At present, he is healing like “Wolverine” and has been moved to a spinal rehabilitation hospital where he continues to make great progress.
Currently, he has started to walk with the aid of a spotter and a walker. He is taking swim therapy, occupational therapy and is re-learning how to do everyday things. Victor has said he could feel the prayers when he was in the worst pain. Prayers helped him get through it and continue to push to make progress.
You save for Vacation, Christmas Shopping, Weddings, Down payment for a car or a home. You don’t save for these kinds of situations! It’s very hard to ask for help however, during hard-times it’s important to lean on family, friends and the community. We would greatly appreciate any help you are able to provide.
As of now the estimated hospital, therapy and medical bills are more than
$300,000.00. Our insurance is paying 80% which still leaves us with a rather large amount due.
Overall Goal = $50,000.00 USD
