On May 21, 2018, our family member, Davin Egusa, was unfortunately involved in a life-threatening incident. Under the State of Hawaii Department of Transportation, Davin was a part of the crew assisting Leilani estates due to the heavy lava flow. While at work, he was run over by an excavator and immediately rushed to the Hilo Medical Center. As a result, his left leg was necessarily amputated and he was admitted to the ICU. On May 22nd, due to his critical condition, he was transferred to Queen’s Medical Center via Hawaii Life Flight where he is currently in the ICU there.

Davin is a father of three daughters ages 20, 18 and 14. Partner to Janelle Rosario of 20 years. Janelle accompanied Davin to Queens. She will be staying with him at the hospital through his treatment and recovery. She temporarily has no source of income and undergoing many hardships due to this event. Their second daughter, Kaydrian, just graduated from Waiākea High School last week Saturday and plans to attend college in the Fall to pursue a nursing degree. Their youngest Kayliah, will be graduating 8th grade from Waiākea Intermediate School next week.

The monies collected will be used towards living expenses for the family and basic necessities for Janelle while she is on Oahu with Davin. No donation is too small. We greatly appreciate any contribution you can make to help this unfortunate situation.

Some information on me. My name is Shanel Cabango from Hilo. I am Janelle’s sister in law. The funds raised will be used to temporarily supplement Janelle’s income while she is out of work caring for Davin for the unforeseen amount of time necessary, pay any monthly bills/utilities/groceries, also to be used for any necessities and food she needs while she is with Davin in the hospital. This may also afford the opportunity for their daughters to be able to fly to see their father when he is conscious. The funds will be going directly to Janelle to use as needed.

The promise that Davin made to his family has finally come true. After two and a half months residing at the Queen’s Medical Center, Davin and Janelle have returned home.

It was a bittersweet moment for them. Having to say goodbye to an amazing team and new found friends was extremely difficult. They will forever be grateful for the many hands that played a role with Davin’s healing process in helping him return home to the Big Island.

The three girls reunited with their parents on Monday and they couldn’t be happier to have their dad by their sides.

Thank you to the many people who have impacted Janelle & Davin’s lives. Your love and support has made this unfortunate journey endurable.

Mahalo!

Over the past few months, Davin has endured emotional and physical pain with both good days and bad days. However, the journey is still far from over.

Tuesday marked Davin’s eighteenth surgery which welcomed a positive turnout. The doctors successfully closed the remaining left leg by taking half of his back skin to use for grafting. They also amputated an inch more of the the left leg to proceed with closure. Davin is now being restricted to bedrest so he can heal and begin the growing process.

There are still many more surgeries that awaits but Davin believes all the pain is worth it, for it is one step closer to coming home.

Mahalo again for all the continuous support and prayers. We look forward to Janelle and Davin’s safe return.

Aloha All,

We would like to share Davin’s latest update.
Wednesday marked Davins sixteenth surgery. Doctors had to go in and amputate more of his left leg due to a possible infection in his bone. The bone was sent out for further testing before skin grafting can begin, the doctors plan is to recheck the leg so they can move forward. Another surgery is scheduled for this Friday.

Davin is a fighter and we are extremely proud of his positive attitude and the strength he has shown these past months.

Mahalo again for the continuous love and support!

Aloha all,

Davin and Janelle will continue to reside at the Queens Medical Center for further skin grafts and rehabilitation before Davin can receive the clear to return home.

In his recent surgery, the left leg took to the artificial skin and in a couple of weeks, the surgeons hope is to continue debridement. (Debridement involves the removal of necrotic tissue to promote woundhealing) to his right leg and begin skin grafts on the remains of his left leg.

Davin and Janelle remain hopeful that the remainder of the surgeries will go well, so, they can return home and start to rebuild their lives.

Mahalo to all for your kindness and support.
