BIKER TAKEN DOWN BY HIT AND RUN DRIVER NEEDS YOUR HELP

On July 26, 2010 our dearest friend Jeffrey "Cuban" Figueiras was involved in a tragic motorcycle accident that could have ended fatal if it wasn't for immediate fire rescue response.  He was hit by a driver in a car which left him for dead.  Jeff was immediately rushed to the Intensive Care Unit at Jackson Memorial Hospital's Ryder Trauma Center in Miami, FL.  He sustained multiple broken bones including two broken legs, a broken ankle, three breaks in his back but no spinal chord damage, a broken pelvis, a laceration to the kidney and internal bleeding in the abdominal area.  For the first four hours, Jeff needed blood transfusions to help keep him alive due to the extensive blood loss.  Jeff also had to have a stainless steel rod driven through his knee to keep the bones in his left leg seperated.  Although he will be able to walk again, the road to recovery will be a long, painful, and arduous one.  We ask everyone and anyone reading this who knows Jeffrey or has lost someone to a motorcycle accident and would like to help the cause, to please come forward and make a donation of any denomination.  This fundraiser is for Jeff to aid him in covering the costs of his hospital expenses and rehabilitation.  Thank you for your time and GOD BLESS.  To those who are bikers, may God be on your side and shield you from the dangers that lurk on the open roads.  Always remember, it is always better to get home by five; and not carried out by six. Jeff we are all pulling for you, and you are in our thoughts and constant prayers, your friends and family are all there for you every step of the way.
