On January 7th 2020 Raull had a horrible accident on the road from Mozambique to Machadodorp. What Exactly happened is still unclear as Raull is still heavily sedated and unable to speak. He was on holiday for December and on his way home when his motorcycle collided with a truck.
His injuries are horrific and more then any human being should ever have to bare, his shoulder is broken in two places, humerus broken, broken pelvis, Shattered femur bone, broken fibula and tibia, laceration to the left arm, laceration to the lower left leg, an immense blood loss.The operation required to replace femur bone with prosthesis can not be done now, as he is very unstable due to weakening lungs and a already weak kidney.
Seeing Raull lying in this hospital bed breaks a part of me no man could explain, he was a person who embraces life to the full and took every challenge with open arms, a bike between his legs and a smile on his face. He gives life meaning and people motivation. I think the most heartbreaking moment in life is when the doctor comes to tell you the injuries sustained is significantly bad and that the one you love might not make it but I know the best feeling is when the doctor starts the next sentence with a "but" - Raull medical procedures are extremely expensive as he has to many injuries to treat at once and multiple operations has to be done.
We as his family want to ask for any fund any donation any one can give to help save the light in our lives and help us and the medical professionals to bring him back to the full living man he once was so that everyone can meet the man we have the honor of knowing as to now
