On October 31st, 2016 what should've been a great family outing for the Zbylut family, instantly turned to tragedy. At about 6:15 pm, 3 year old Patrick Zbylut was walking in a crosswalk with his family trick-or-treating, near 63rd & Natchez when he was struck by a hit and run driver. Sadly Patrick was rushed to Loyola University Medical Center where he sustained a brain trauma, and was put on a ventilator. Patrick has a very long road ahead of him, and this family will be stuck with medical bill after medical bill. Please find it in your heart to donate to this family. No amount is too small. Every penny counts! If you cannot donate, please pray that this little boy pulls through. Thank you from the Clearing/Garfield Ridge community!!

Dzień 31 października 2016 roku okazał się wielką tragedią dla rodziny Zbylut. Około godziny 6:15 po południu, niedaleko 63 i Natchez na południu Chicago, 3-letni Patryk Zbylut, w trakcie chodzenia ze swoją rodzina na trick-or-treat, został uderzony na przejściu przez kierowce który uciekł z miejsca wypadku. Natychmiast Patryk został przewieziony do Loyola University Medical Center, gdzie doznał urazu mózgu i został wprowadzony do respiratora. Patryk ma przed sobą bardzo długą drogę do wyzdrowienia, a jego rodzina wkrótce zostanie obciążona rachunkami medycznymi. Prosimy znaleźć w swoim sercu aby złożyć donacje na rachunki medyczne przeznaczone dla małego Patryka. Żadna ilość nie jest zbyt mała. Każda donacja się liczy! Jeśli nie możecie złożyć donacji, prosimy o modlitwę za zdrowie Patryczka!

From the bottom of my heart I thank each & every one of you who have donated to this GoFundMe campaign for Patrick & his family. This was my FIRST time ever creating a campaign, and I am very happy that my goal was met not once, but twice. I'm not gonna raise it anymore, but I will keep this going until the family says to withdraw the funds.

I was asked by a couple people why I took it upon myself to create this campaign, and why was I so eager to help complete strangers out, and I'm not getting anything in return. I didn't create this campaign to seek attention, or to get a pat on the back, or to expect something out of it. I did this outta the kindness of my heart because this is the way I was raised! I was taught to help others as much as I can because no good deed goes un noticed. This unfortunate circumstance happened in my own neighborhood, and as a community we come together. I also did it without hesitation because I am a Mother...I am a parent & I can relate. If I was ever put in a situation like this I would hope someone would do the same for me. If I could've created this campaign being anonymous I would have. No parent should ever have to be in the hospital watching their child fight for their life. My heart really goes out to this family, and I have all the faith in the world this little boy will pull through. Again I thank every single one of you for donating, and sharing this campaign on behalf of the Zbylut family. God bless all of you!!

Greetings everyone! Spoke to Patrick's Uncle Tom today, and he said Patrick is off of life support, and he's progressing in baby steps. He is able to open his eyes, but they don't know if he can see. He is able to breathe on his own for the most part, but is given Oxygen when needed. They don't know exactly how much brain damage there is until Patrick fully wakes up. He has a very long road ahead of him, but the important thing is- he's ALIVE & he's FIGHTING!!! No parent should ever have to endure this horrible tragedy. Please keep those prayers coming, and please continue to share this GoFundMe me with everyone. Thank you all from the bottom of my heart!

I just wanted to say thank you to those of you who have donated, and shared this GoFundMe. It has been shared over 400 times, and over 100 donations were received. I reached my first goal of $5,000 & I just raised it to $5,800 once I reach that goal I will withdraw the funds, present the money to the Zbylut family, and close this account. Please keep sharing, and please keep praying for Patrick & his family. Prayer is a powerful thing! I will post an update on his progress as soon as I hear anything. God bless all of you!! :)

Greetings to all of you of good will who opened your hearts and contributed to this campaign. My name is Tom and I am Patrick's uncle. Toni has been a God send who stood in our path as a Good Samaritan in our darkest hour. Thank you Toni and may God bless and keep you and your family in His care always. We are grateful to all of you as well. Patrick's recovery will be long. He will soon be transferred to a rehabilitation center where the extent of his needs will be addressed. We are hopeful as he's making progress and that he will not be paralyzed. May the good Lord keep all of you save from harm. ************** Chciałbym w imieniu rodziny Patryka złożyć serdeczne Bóg Zapłać za hojność wszystkich którzy pomogli rodzinie ofiarami złożonymi przez ta platformę. Patryk już wkrótce zacznie rehabilitacje. Nadzieja nas prowadzi.... Tomasz
