On October 31st, 2020, a vehicle flipped off the I-794 freeway in Wisconsin and landed in a parking lot beneath the freeway. The driver, and lone passenger, was a 19-year-old male who was ejected from the vehicle and was discovered unconscious, but breathing. He sustained head injuries and was transported by Flight for Life to a local hospital where he remained in critical condition.
A GoFundMe was made to help the man, Maher, and his mother, Norma, pay for extreme medical expenses. The creator of the GoFundMe is a beloved friend of Maher who writes about their family situation and how loving they are. She considers Maher a brother, and is extremely saddened at the stressful events occurring after the accident.
The friend has been updating readers about Maher’s condition. She states, “His brain keeps swelling and the doctors are working hard around the clock to stop that. Maher’s grandmother is taking care of his siblings so his mother can be with him. Everyone is completely devastated by this.”
She adds how the hospital expenses are evergrowing. She has used TikTok to vent her frustrations about the medical bills, including pointing out the hypocrisy of 124k a month costing more than a house. It is no secret that healthcare and medical bills continue to skyrocket way higher than most people can afford in the US.
She hopes to relieve the worrying and stress from Maher’s mother and she continues to pray for her friend. She has plans in place to help Maher including moving from her second-story apartment and finding a one-floor home as well as accommodating it with disability accommodations in addition to having a van and wheelchair transport. She is extremely grateful to those who have donated and helped reduce the stress of Maher’s incident.
