The family and friends of Joao Ramalho are uniting to raise money to help him with medical bills and ongoing treatments needed to recover.

On September 6, 2012, What seemed like a perfect vacation ended in tragedy. Joao was vacationing with his two young daughters when he suffered a terrible accident. Joao was jumping into a wave in the ocean, where he hit the surface. He suffered cervical trauma and had to be flown to the hospital where he is now awaiting his outcome. After surgery on September 13th his outcome does not look good. The Doctors say he will be paralyzed from the waist down and will require lots of will and strength and prayers to try to obtain movement from his waist up. He is currently in a doctor induced coma state and is having trouble breathing. This family is devastated and needs your help. Joao is a 36 year old single father of two beautiful little girls who are heart broken. We are asking for donations to help care for his little girls and also help pay for medical bills and ongoing medical treatment he will need for his recovery. Please find it in your heart to help this family. Any little amount will be a great help. God Bless You
