Bryan Criales Medical Fund
The entire Criales family is greatly thankful for all the support that Bryan have received up to this day. I'd like to ask everyone to keep praying for his fast recovery. This is just the beginning for Bryan Criales and he has a long way to go as you can see in this footage. I'd like to also thank Erica Rakow for sharing Bryan's story in such a touching way. Please keep spreading the word about Bryan's story and God bless everyone.
On December 13, 2015 our 22 year old nephew, Bryan Criales, his sister Carmen, and their mom Elisa were involved in a horrible wrong-way car accident. They were hit by a car driving in a wrong direction on I-95 in Miami.
The accident took life of our beloved Carmen 23 yrs old and left Bryan and Elisa critically injured. They were rushed to Jackson Memorial Hospital's Ryder Trauma Center in Miami. Bryan suffered severe brain trauma, lots of swelling and bruising. He had four brain surgeries, one involving the removal a part of his skull to allow for swelling. He also had multiple fractures in his shoulders, right knee, toes, pelvis and he had a part of his liver removed. He spent six weeks in coma.
Currently, he is still in Jackson Memorial Hospital. He has a feeding tube and trachea to help him with breathing. In about six weeks he will have another surgery to put his skull back in so please be praying for everything to go well. He has a long way to go, but every day he makes a little progress and we truly believe that one day he will be able to talk, walk, and enjoy his life again.
On the financial side, Bryan’s medical bills are piling up. He will not be able to come home for a long time and he will require hospital care after the surgery, and then months in a rehab center. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thank you for all your support and prayers.
The Criales Family
En diciembre 13 del 2015, nuestro sobrino de 22 años Bryan Criales, su hermana Carmen y su madre Elisa Diaz estuvieron envueltó en un horrible accidente en automóvil, cuando un carro se les vinó hacia ellos en via contraria. Ellos fueron colapsados fuertemente por este automóvil que venia en via contraria en la autopista I-95 en Miami.
El accidente arrebató con la vida de nuestra queridísima Carmen de 23 años y dejó a Bryan y a Elisa criticamente lesionados. Ellos fueron llevados al centro de Ryder Trauma, Jackson Memorial Hospital en Miami. Bryan sufrió severas traumas en el cerebro, muchas inflamaciones y moretones en todo el cuerpo. Él ha tenido 4 cirugias, una de las cigurias involucró el removimiento del hueso de su cabeza, para que asi pueda el cerebro tener más espacio y se controle la inflamación. Él tuvo multiples fracturas en sus hombros, rodilla derecha, dedos del pie, pelvis, y se le removió una parte de su higado por parte de un derrame interno. Pasó seis semanas en coma.
Actualmente, él sigue en el Hospital de Jackson Memorial. Él tiene un tubo de alimentación y tráquea que le ayuda a respirar. Dentro de seis semanas va a tener otra operación en que consistira la colocación del hueso de su cabeza, por favor orén porque todo salga bien. Bryan tiene un largo camino por recurrir, pero cada día él hace un pequeño progreso y realmente creemos que algún día, él pueda hablar, caminar, y disfrutar de la vida otra vez.
Por el lado financiero, los recibos medicos de Bryan están acumulandose. Él no va a poder venir a casa en un largo tiempo y él va a requerir cuidados especiales por parte del hospital después de las cirugias que se le van a hacer y meses de rehabilitación en centros especiales. Se le comunica a todo el publico que cualquier ayuda séra apreciada. Gracias por todo su apoyo y oraciones.

Thank you ALL for being with them since day ONE!!!
After long months in the hospital and rehabilitation center, Bryan is back home and continues his battle with TBI. Currently, Bryan still cannot care for himself and needs constant help with everyday tasks. He is not able to walk or communicate, but he became more alert and makes small improvements everyday.
His medical insurance only covers few hours of outpatient therapy a week and does not provide transportation to the rehabilitation center. Bryan’s mom who takes care of him, does not drive and has to take taxi to take Bryan to therapy. Also, Bryan’s medicine is very expensive and hard to afford since the family’s income decreased dramatically since the accident happened.
If you are reading this and you know someone that could help Bryan with his recovery, please share his story with them. Also please don’t hesitate to contact us via email or through this account if you have any questions.
Bryan’s entire family is very grateful for all the help and support that you have shown towards him.
