This fundraiser is to help Jared Sanchez and his family with the medical expenses following a spinal cord injury.

Jared was born in Greeley, Colorado on August 31st, 1987. He is a son, brother, cousin, an uncle and a loving husband. He is a very devoted father to his four year old son Damian.

Jared graduated from Valley High in Gilcrest in 2006. He was a bright student, very active in school. Jared played varsity football and enjoyed weight lifting class.  

On August 12th, 2012, Jared and his family would have a different life. Do to a very tragic incident Jared is now confined to a wheel chair. He is the victim of a shooting and this fundraiser is to help assist with the financial burden of living with an injury. He was shot twice in the neck and one of the bullets hit his C-6 vertebrae damaging his spinal cord, the other bullet did damage to Jared's lung. Unfortunately law enforcement is not clear what happened and currently no one is charged for injuring Jared.

Jared is still currently in the hospital and has been since the incident. He spent weeks in an ICU, then a long term care hospital. Recently Jared was transferred to a spinal cord rehab hospital. We are VERY lucky he was able to get into this hospital. The medical costs are one of the financial burdens his family is dealing with but also planning for life after the hospital. Finding and funding for all the equipment and housing for Jared, is the other financial hardship.
