On May 7, 2018 my uncle Sinan Gerbovci was the victim of a workplace accident. Right after starting work on a Monday morning around 8:00 A.M. he fell from a roof top three stories high onto concrete. He has been in the hospital with severe head and brain trauma, a broken neck, ribs and both legs. His current status is unknown. As of right now, he is in critical condition and we are hoping for survival. We are definitely looking at permanent damage and a very long and slow recovery.
My uncle lives in Prishtina, Kosovo; a country help is very minimum. The hospital he is in has extremely talented doctors but they do not have all of the equipment or medicine to give him. This means the family has to literally go to the pharmacy, buy what he needs, and bring back to the hospital for the doctors and nurses to treat him. His wife and four daughters, ages 20, 17 and the twins 15, are struggling financially to provide the medicine for their father to even have a chance at survival. The family has shared their struggle and mentioned the fact that they only have enough money for two more days to help their father fight for his life.
They need our help. All funds raised will go directly to his wife Lirije to support and to make sure he has the medical attention he needs to survive.
Sinan is loved by everyone; he is the kindest most loving father I know. His family was the perfect example of what happiness looked like. Sinan has always been the only one working to support his family until his oldest daughter got a part time job to help as much as she could. When there was opportunities to help others, Sinan was always the first one to help. He is an incredible father to his daughters, the type of father who does not own a vehicle, but will walk his daughter to and back from work to ensure she makes it home safely. He is an essential part of the family and we can’t imagine a world without him.
Anything you can do to help us support him and his medical needs will be greatly appreciated.
