Monte's teeth robbery fund

$12,604 of $25,000 goal

Created September 28, 2017



On September 26, my younger brother Monte was assulted and robbed at Hookipa Beach Park around 9 pm by a suspected drug addict. An irate man ran up to his truck with a flashlight yelling, saying "Give me all your money." He then punched Monte a couple times after Monte told him he didn't have any. He then ripped him out of his truck, and struck Monte in the mouth with his flashlight, breaking seven teeth,  (three of which are broken bellow the gum line) and splitting both his upper and lower lips . He then ripped apart Monte's truck, looking for whatever he could find, but all he got was his  backpack.

In the end, what Monte was really robbed of was his teeth. 

Monte is one of the kindest people I know.  For someone to do this to him for no reason other than being high on drugs makes me deeply angry and sad: sad for my brother for all the pain and dental work he will have to go through just to be able to eat and talk normally again.  Also, for my parents, who will be responsible for the hospital and dental bills. The dentists expect the cost for repairing his mouth to be about  $25,000.00.
 
Everyone in the community has shown so much of their love and compassion to my brother and family. Any support at this time would be greatly appreicated.

The beneficiary to the money of this Gofundme account is our mother Marrian Kerr (Lena). She is in charge of paying to dental bills, there for she is in charge of the money : )

It was a long road to get to this point! This is what Montes temparary teeth look like. Looks pretty good right! Monte isn't out of the woods yet,he still will have to under go a couple major procedures and at least 3 more dentist visits before he gets his permanent teeth and can put this chapter of his life behind him. Not to mention the biggest bills yet to come. Thank you to everyone who has shown their Love and Aloha.
