Saving Amando’s Life & Rehab

Amando Uribe, a food truck owner who lives in Stamford, CT, was involved in a tragic accident which paralyzed his lower body, feeling nothing from the waist down. He was taken to the Stamford emergency center for urgent treatment. Since then, the doctors and nurses were able to keep his pain under control but spinal fusion surgery was definitely needed to reconstruct his shattered spinal area to provide immediate stability. Other injuries include broken ribs and hip fracture.

My father doesn't have insurance to cover all his medical expense and for rehabilitation, but with the help of his social worker and the hospital, there is a chance that this isn't going to be a huge medical bill we will face.  

I have talked to the social worker and she said the best thing we can do is to raise money just for the rehabilitation which will cost about 65,000 dollars, which basically covers everything. This is very important to ensure that he gets the best treatment for spinal rehabilitation. 

It would be nice to have this fund as soon as possible. Within a couple of months to a year.

Donating would mean a lot to us, especially when a man has goals. One day the family wanted to get a better food truck and one day own a family restaurant here in Stamford, CT. He still wants to do that and every dollar counts toward his recovery at the hospital.

Why?

Because amando is the hardest working man I know. With his outstanding creativity and kitchen experience, he wanted to be part of the food service industry and be loved by his customers to tasted his genuine, homemade food. His business is called Jefe’s Tacos N Grill, a brand new food truck located in Stamford, CT.

Currently he is now at the new haven hospital.


Amando Uribe, dueño de un camión de comida que vive en Stamford, CT, estuvo involucrado en un trágico accidente que paralizó la parte inferior de su cuerpo, sin sentir nada de la cintura para abajo. Fue llevado al centro de emergencias de Stamford para recibir tratamiento de urgencia. Desde entonces, los médicos y las enfermeras pudieron mantener su dolor bajo control, pero definitivamente se necesitaba una cirugía de fusión espinal para reconstruir su área espinal destrozada para proporcionar una estabilidad inmediata. Otras lesiones incluyen costillas rotas y fractura de cadera.

Mi padre no tiene un seguro para cubrir todos sus gastos médicos y para la rehabilitación, pero con la ayuda de su trabajador social y el hospital, existe la posibilidad de que esta no sea una gran factura médica que enfrentaremos.

He hablado con la trabajadora social y ella dijo que lo mejor que podemos hacer es recaudar dinero solo para la rehabilitación, que costará alrededor de 65,000 dólares, que básicamente cubre todo. Esto es muy importante para garantizar que reciba el mejor tratamiento para la rehabilitación espinal.

Sería bueno tener este fondo lo antes posible. Dentro de un par de meses a un año.

Donar significaría mucho para nosotros, especialmente cuando un hombre tiene metas. Un día, la familia quería conseguir un mejor camión de comida y un día tener un restaurante familiar aquí en Stamford, CT. Él todavía quiere hacer eso y cada dólar cuenta para su recuperación en el hospital.

¿Por qué?

Porque amando es el hombre más trabajador que conozco. Con su extraordinaria creatividad y experiencia en la cocina, quería formar parte de la industria de servicios de comida y ser amado por sus clientes para probar su auténtica comida casera. Su negocio se llama Tacos N Grill de Jefe, un nuevo camión de comida ubicado en Stamford, CT.

Actualmente se encuentra en el nuevo hospital de Haven.
