Hello, My name is Rachel, a Mom of 2 Amazing Grown Children and 3 Beautiful Grandchildren. On Friday, April 1, 2022, at 11:45 PM, I received a phone call no parent should ever have to experience…from the Trauma Unit.
Robert was driving home over the Stuart Roosevelt Bridge from work when he was struck from behind by an Impaired 23 yr. old Drunk Driver.
The impact caused his car to roll over multiple times, hitting the bridge walls. We can’t imagine the fear he must have felt during this horrific time. In the process of the rollover, his arm and hand were mangled between the road and the car, causing his hand to be degloved (meaning all the skin, bones, tendons etc., were removed and damaged ) and his left arm with Road Rash from his Shoulder down. In addition, Robert has 2 neck fractures, C5 and C6, from the trauma of the impact; this could have caused him to be paralyzed..but Miracles happen!
We Thank the Civilians who got out of their cars to assist him! Also, the Fire Rescue Team that moved him to the nearest parking lot so the Helicopter could Air Lift him to the Hospital-They ALL helped save his Life!.
Robert will need multiple reconstructive surgeries on his hand and multiple skin grafting within time; his first surgery on April 3rd, 2022, has been successful so far. For his neck, they will continue to stabilize, monitor and hope he does not need surgery in the future. All other injuries are in their healing process. This day has changed his life forever…
Please find it in your heart to donate any amount to help Robert focus on his health and life moving forward. Robert is just a 28-year-old hippie soul who enjoys fishing, nature trails, hiking, family, friends, animal lover and making others smile. He is passionate about helping the community and learning from others’ experiences.
