November 18th around 3:30pm Alex Gerasimov just got back home from work to his wife Oksana Gerasimov and 5 beautiful kids. He asked Oksana to warm up some food while he goes moves the car from the driveway. 30mins goes by and his wife felt like something was wrong. She called but there was no answer. She got her 5 kids in the car and started to go look for him. Once she got to dash point road she realized the worst has happened. The road was shut down and the officers told her that her husband is now being transported to Harbor View Hospital in ciritical condition and was not able to breath on his own.
That night a father, a brother, a son through blood and law was now fighting for his life. Alex involved in a head on collision on dashpoint road.
Both the passenger and Alex were in critical condition and could not breath on their own. We all waited in disbelief and worrying the whole time the social worker kept us updated until we were able to see him 5 hours later.
Alex sustained a broken Femur, broken knee, and broke ankle in the other leg. A broken rib and bruising to the lungs. we are grateful that there was no damage to his spine or vital organs. Right now Alex is in a medically induced coma and will be for the next few days and will need multiple surgeries.
Alex was a man of many smiles and laughs, he filled the room when he was there, no matter if stranger or not he made you feel like family. He always went out of his way to help other in need with out hesitation. He would do anything for his kids and family. He is a great father and we all have something to look up to him for. He's not just a brother to me, he means everything to us.
Today we ask for your help. Family and friends or even acquaintances of Alex and Oksana Gerasimov to help with medical bills if possible. Anything is great appreciated and everything is one step closer to recovery.
Thank you for everyone who has prayed and giving us hope through this. We are beyond blessed to have friends like you. We will never be able to thank you enough for all the support and love from all.
