More than a month ago, Akram's 18 year old son, Cyrus, was involved in an unfortunate car accident. He was a front seat passenger to a driver going 60 mph on a 25 mph road, though he was wearing his seat belt, Cyrus is the only individual who remains in the hospital fighting for his ability to move again. Cyrus has had 2 main surgeries to help with reconstruction of his neck, back and legs. The doctors imagine that Cyrus will be committed to a wheel chair for life. Fortunately, he is able to talk and can see what is happening around him, however, his BP is low where he has very little ability to move from his hospital bed to a wheel chair at all. All of this is taking a high toll on Cyrus's mental status, a student who two weeks after the accident was to attend medical school, is now struggling to sit, stand, eat, let alone remain positive. Akram has stayed with her son from ICU to now Rehab during his hospital stay. The family is facing high medical bills, hospital stay expenses along with the need to renovate their home in order for Cyrus to live a full life in a wheel chair comfortably at home, after he can be released from the hospital. Your donation will be of tremendous support to the family not only financially, to also give the family some hope and encouragement to continue in making progress for Cyrus through Physical Therapy, the next steps to this young man's journey. Please spread the word, the link and the request for this family.
