Hello, Friends and Family of Mino Solomon!
If you haven't already heard, our dear friend Mino was involved in a weight lifting accident on September 5th while visiting Chicago. This accident broke Mino’s spine and caused immediate loss of sensation and movement from the waist down. Mino underwent emergency surgery to fuse and stabilize his spine. The surgery was successful and fused four vertebrae together. After a week in the ICU, Mino has progressed and is now on his way to recovery at the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago (RIC). Though the road will be long and strenuous, we have faith that Mino’s determination and positive attitude will help him reach his ultimate goal – walking, running and being upright and active again!
Mino’s doctors, therapist and nurses are doing their best to give him every opportunity for a full recovery. In doing so, they plan to keep Mino at RIC until mid-November when the voyage back home will begin. Once back in ATX, Mino will continue working towards his recovery. This will require numerous hours of therapy and ongoing medical attention.
Though we can't begin to understand what Mino is going through, what we can do is help him prepare for the financial burden. It is with this goal in mind that we are reaching out to you for your support. We anticipate that Mino will need significant finances over the next two years to aid him on his road to recovery. House and automobile modifications, outpatient physical and psychological therapy, ongoing medical expenses, and existing out of pocket medical expenses are just a few of the things that this sum will help to cover.
Please consider donating and spreading the word to help Mino keep the momentum going and reach his and our goals for him.
Let's help him focus on his recovery while we take care of the rest.
