Saving Pajtim’s Leg

Our brother and friend, Pajtim Krasniqi, was badly injured in a motorcycle accident Sept. 15, and is now fighting to save his leg.
He has been in Trauma Intensive Care Unit for two weeks now, and we are fighting right along side of him.

This week his doctors at Westchester Medical Center said there’s nothing more they can do to save the leg and that they’d need to amputate.

We diligently sought out second opinions and specialists at NYU said there is hope.

Unfortunately, Pajtim’s insurance isn’t accepted for the transport nor for the care he needs from specialty at NYU. Already the medical bills have quickly begun depleting his, and our, bank accounts.

These new doctors are hopeful of reconstruction of his left leg. He can move his toes and the doctors at Westchester Medical Center were able to reroute an artery to keep blood flow. So there is still life to the leg and the specialists at NYU believe they can save it.

Pajtim’s whole life has been dedicated to fitness and the outdoors. He works out religiously and treats his body like his temple, never smoking nor drinking, which is why doctors believe he’s beating the odds right now.

He’s a fighter. And we’re trying to give him a fighter’s chance. We’re hoping with these additional surgeries that he will not only save the leg, but work hard afterward to regain some of the joys he once lived daily.

If you can help us offset some of Pajtim’s extraordinary medical costs, and hopefully save his leg, it would mean so much.
