Jason Saenz Recovery Fund (aka Saenz Spinez)

$201,565 of $300,000 goal

Raised by 3,711 people in 8 months
Created December 4, 2018
This past weekend our friend and fellow comic, Jason Saenz had a major accident in which his spine was badly injured after falling through a skylight on the roof of an apartment building. He's currently paralyzed from the waist down and will be facing a very long road to recovery. Right now he's in the ICU at Cedars-Sinai and will be entering a rehabilitation center as soon as possible to improve his path to healing.

The good news: Jason is the kind of guy who can get through a challenge like this with humor ✔️hard work ✔️ and determination✔️.

The bad news: the cost of his care is going to be exorbitant. 

Jason had been working at a new job and his health care was set to begin January 1, 2019 - which means he was not covered at the time of the accident.

As of now, to cover emergency room costs, spinal surgery, an extended stay at Cedars-Sinai, months of rehabilitation, not being able to earn an income while recovering, and multiple other expenses we need to help him raise hundreds of thousands based on numbers and estimates we've been hearing. The faster we can fund this to get Jason started with treatment, the better his prognosis will be.

He's in good company right now with his family who was able to travel to Los Angeles quickly after learning about his accident. No one is ever prepared for something so devastating and that's where we his friends want to pull together and show love and support by helping with this immense financial burden. All proceeds go directly to Jason and his family.

Thank you so much!!

Love,

Team Jason

I finally bought a new car! It's a 2017 Subaru Outback and I love it. It's super safe and big enough to fit my wheelchair. Thanks to all my friends for helping me make this happen. One step closer to being 100% independent again. Next I've got to learn the new hand controls. I'll update you again soon. MUCH LOVE!

Hello everyone,

It’s me Jason with a personal Memorial Day weekend update video!

First I want to thank everyone who supported me during my time in the hospital, rehab and now as I recover back home.

Without your positive vibes, prayers and donations these past months I wouldn’t be as far along in my recovery. I am eternally grateful and humbled by the outpour of love and positivity. I’m doing well, growing stronger each day and working hard in my recovery.

Enjoy your holiday weekend with Family & Friends and know that you helped to change my life in a positive way. Thank you!
