Ramirez Family Tragedy Fund

$77,160 of $80,000 goal

Raised by 1,140 people in 2 months
On Saturday January 27th, 2018 a great tragedy struck the Ramirez Family in the form of a fatal car accident on Interstate 25. The family of four were struck by an oncoming vehicle that was driving the wrong way on the freeway.  State Patrol believes alcohol may have been a factor affecting the driver of the oncoming vehicle. Miguel Ramirez lost his life at the scene of the accident and his son Michael, who was only 17, was transported to Denver Health where he was pronounced dead. His wife María and his daughter Salma were also transported to Denver Health with serious injuries. María has a broken sternum and collarbone, and an injury to her neck. Salma is very bruised and has some injuries to her ribs. The money from this fund will go to relieving upcoming economic burden on the family in the form of medical bills, memorial service costs, and everyday living costs after losing the head of the household. María is currently unable to return to work due to her injuries. The family faces a long road to recovery and any monetary help greatly relieves this burden. Even if you are unable to donate, please share this gofundme with as many people as possible. Thank you for any assistance you can provide, it is much appreciated.

El Sábado 27 de Enero la familia Ramirez sufrio una trajedia muy fuerte. Hubo un accidente en el interestatal 25 en el carril expreso. La familia fue impactada por un auto que viajaba en sentido contrario. La policía sospecha que alcohol puede ser un factor que afectaba al operador del otro auto. Miguel Ramirez (Padre) perdió la vida en el impacto, y su hijo Michael Ramirez, con solo 17 años de edad, fue al hospital Denver Health donde fue declarado muerto. Su esposa María y su hija Salma también fueron transportadas al hospital con heridas serias. María tiene el esternón y la clavícula rota. Salma tiene muchos moretones en el cuerpo y una herida a sus costillas. El dinero de este fondo será utilizado para sus costos medicos, servicios funebres y gastos para la vida diaria después de haber perdido al soporte de la casa. María no puede trabajar porque sus heridas son considerables y tardaran mucho para sanar. La familia tiene un camino difícil por atravesar y su donación puede ayudar a esta familia. Si no puede donar, por favor comparta esta página con todas sus amistades y amigos. Gracias para todo su ayuda. La familia Ramirez le agradece mucho.

Thank you to all for your generous donations and as you can see, we have reached and surpassed our goal. We continue to hope for additional donations, as medical and funeral expenses have exceeded our expectations. There are no words to describe how grateful we are for all your help and all the love you have shown. Thank God that my mother and I are on the road to recovery, but as you can understand it is very difficult. We are now preparing to say goodbye to our father and husband, and brother and son. Be assured that information about funeral and memorial services will be posted soon. Above all, thank you very much for everything and God bless you.

Muchas gracias a todos por sus generosas donaciones que como pueden ver, hemos alcanzado y rebazado la meta. Estamos esperando para mas donaciones, como gastos medicos y funerarios han excedido las expectaciones. No hay palabras para describir nuestro agradecimiento por tanto apoyo y muestras de amor. Gracias a Dios mi madre y yo estamos un poco mas estables tratando de aceptar la realidad pero como muchos podran entender, es verdaderamente muy dificil. Ahora estamos preparando todo para despedir de este mundo fisico a nuestro padre y hermano. Tengan por seguro que de una manera u otra, publicaremos la informacion sobre los servicios funebres tan pronto concluyan nuestros preparativos. De antemano, muchas gracias por todo y que Dios los bendiga!
