My boyfriend and I have been together for 3 wonderful years! We recently were in a nearly fatal car crash on mother's day. My boyfriend, Hector suffered a shattered pelvis, 8 broken ribs, and collarbone broken. With alot of help and dedication he recently became able to do get back to his normal life. He still has some pain and is not able to do alot but he's way better! We've worked hard to be able to get the house after our already near death experience, now we're desperately trying our best to pick up the pieces from everything we have been through this year. Myself and one year old daughter were asleep at the time. I was awakened by what felt like a bomb went off, I grabbed my child and began calling for anyone to help us. She was trembling and scared! Thinking quickly, I called out for help once again and heard his father calling out for help, I coaxed him out from parts of the house and tree that entrapped him in the kitchen where the tree did major damage. I could not reach his father because the middle of the tree blocked me from him. After helping his father get out from under the debris, I heard glass breaking. Our neighbor grabbed everything he could to get us out! I handed off my daughter first, then he was able to help me get out of the house from another window. Meanwhile his father couldn't get out of the house until firefighters came, unfortunately his father suffered a broken leg and surgery is scheduled to repair it soon. Everything of ours has been destroyed! Our family is in desperate need of any help that is offered. We appreciate everyone that can lend a helping hand in this tragedy we are facing.
