Living and Medical Expenses not covered by insurance for Roberto's family in their time of need.

On the morning of Sunday, October 14, 2012, while driving back from Fort Myers, FL Roberto and his wife Gisella suffered a severe car accident. He swerved from a speeding reckless driver to avoid an accident on the highway, he lost control of the vehicle and the automobile flipped four times. The driver of the car that caused the accident took off from the scene & still not found by the police. The result left Roberto with severe injuries, a broken neck, spinal cord injuries, high blood loss, very deep cuts to his head and a very serious laceration to his forehead. The injuries have resulted in several costly surgeries, blood transfusions and an extended stay at ICU in the hospital. The doctors aren't sure of Roberto's full recovery but he will be out of work for a long period of time. Gisella suffered cracked ribs and deep bruises and hasn't been able to return to work since the accident. He has a long road to recovery with extensive rehab and possible future surgeries to come , their financial situation becomes very uncertain. There are mounting medical bills in excess of $100,000. Roberto does have medical insurance but it will not cover all of the past and future medical bills and other bills as a result of the accident. Roberto is an honest, loving husband, son, friend, cousin and person who will need all the prayers and encouragement for the long road ahead. We ask for your contribution for a loved one whose life will never be the same and needs your help to get his life back.

Roberto's Surgeries and first weeks after the accident were spent at Lee Memorial Hospital 2776 Cleveland Ave, Fort Myers, Florida 33901
