COMMUNITY SEEKS HELP FOR 13-YEAR-OLD PARALYZED BY CHILD ABUSE
Brandon Warbington Needs a Wheelchair Accessible Home
SHOEMAKERSVILLE, PA.—On September 1, 2011, four-year-old Brandon Warbington experienced a life-altering catastrophe. His mother’s partner struck Brandon then purposely crashed the car that Brandon and his mother were in, leaving Brandon with a C1-C4 spinal cord injury and a traumatic brain injury. Five years later, Brandon’s mother committed suicide. This brave young man is now in dire need of financial and emotional support from his Shoemakersville community.
After his mother’s suicide in January 2016, Brandon’s biological father took over his care. Brandon has been unable to walk, communicate, eat by mouth, or even breathe on his own since he sustained quadriplegia 8 years ago. With a non-wheelchair-accessible home, Brandon’s father is struggling to find ways to continue to support his growing son. Brandon’s loved ones have partnered with the national nonprofit Help Hope Live to fundraise for home modifications and other critical costs at https://helphopelive.org/campaign/4590/
Donations can be made to Help Hope Live in honor of Brandon Warbington at any time online, by check, or by calling 800-642-8399. The nonprofit manages all donations and verifies both medical and financial need. Donations are tax deductible to the extent allowed by low, and all donations will offset medical expenses via Help Hope Live’s Mid-Atlantic Catastrophic Injury Fund.
