The Schwirtlich Family-uniting to help raise money for a long battle with a severe brain injury to Erik Schwirtlich! Please SHOW support!!
This is from the Corpus Christi news website -
two men involved in an assault that left a 25-year-old man, unconscious with life threatening injuries on just before midnight on Friday.
One of the suspects, wearing a grey polo style shirt, tried to keep the other man from starting a fight, but the suspect in a black and yellow shirt punched Schwirtlich twice.
Erik was already unconscious as he fell to the ground and hit his head on the sidewalk. -
The fall caused life threatening injuries to his skull. Thanks to quick reactions from some witnesses, Erik was treated quickly, relieving the pressure from his brain and being put on breathing tubes.
Erik is still in the ICU struggling with his speech and mobility. He is not able to leave ICU except to go to a facility to provide Neuro Rehab.
We have a long road to recovery!
What breaks our hearts even more is all that this family has been through, being a victim to the struggling economy, Christina Schwirtlich (Erik's Mother) previously going through major heart surgeries and still struggling with the complications, to now this violent act.
So, we now look to all of you that can help raise the money for Erik's challenging road to recovery!! As well as help this family cope with all they have been through.
Please know that we as a family can not express our gratitude to all of you that show your support, be it big or small, every bit helps! Share the love and spread the word.
