HELPING A FAMILY
Organized by: Alma Avila
Hello and Good Afternoon, my name is Alma Avila. I'm writing to yall to ask for help with any type of donation. Here's a little bit of my families story. On April 20th 2016, our oldest brother, Arturo was involved in a car accident on hwy 635. We don't know much information in relationship to the accident expect for what my brother's friend told the family. That morning I had a knock at my door it was the police and his friend giving me the news that he had a really bad accident. When I arrived at the hospital, Presbyterian in Dallas, doctors had no idea of he's where abouts. They called different numbers throughout the hospital to see where he was located at, finally they said he was in surgery. At this time my mother had arrived to the hospital as well, we went downstairs to the surgery building and they didnt have no one by that name they had someone similar of whom I was describing, and took us upstairs to their ICU wing. As the nurses approached me they asked if I could describe him before they had the doctor come talk to us. As i was describing him the nurse said to me " I have someone with those description and whom had came in here also involved in a car accident. As I walked in the there with my mother following behind me he was in such bad condition that I took 3 different looks at him before I said yes. And the story continues. As time went by doctors told us he probably wasnt going to b the same and everything. He had several other different surgries done to him. He is now up and walking talking with some brain injuries still in place. I'm writing to you guys to see if their is some help yall can offer us since he had no type of insurance. My mother has been applying for different insurance for him through her and has had no luck. The doctors have told us he will have to take certain medications, but we are not able to provide them for money issues. Our story continues since he has been in the hospital for more than a month. My family and I are asking for yalls help if yall can please anything will be greatly appreciated.
