If you recall, back in July some members of our community were involved in a car accident. Now while most of them have recovered, Arwen “Spliff” Rosa is still in the ICU.
While he has made progress, he’s not out of the woods yet and is still in need of constant care. Spliff and his wife Jill are from NYC and have been in Texas since the accident. While the support has been incredible, Jill is 7 months pregnant with their child and when the baby is born it will become incredibly difficult to care for both Spliff and the baby. Back in NYC the two have a large support network of family and friends, and are now looking to get Arwen transferred to a facility in NYC.
They have been accepted into an excellent facility and are now on the wait list. When the call comes, they will have 4 days to move Arwen from Texas to NYC or they will lose their spot. Due to his condition, Spliff will require a medical air transport, which isn’t cheap.
From Jill: “The goal we need to work with right now is getting him/us back home to New York. Arwen has been accepted to a facility there. We are waiting for a bed to open up for him. Once we get that call we’ve got about 4 days to make it there before they pass it on to who’s next on the list. We were going to use long distance ground transport, but due to his health and the weather headed back east it seems to be a dangerous idea. We need to fly him home.”
“Arwen is not getting the care he needs out here and there’s only a couple people who can physically help us. In New York we’ve got family, support system, lots of resources, everything we need. Not to mention our Baby girl is due in about 8 weeks! I have been trying to look into medical foundations and charities so far with no luck. Please help if you can.”
