Date Of Injury: February 2, 2016
In a split second our lives were changed, forever! February 2nd, 2016 was the day we learned that my brother, Frank Pasqua, was involved in a serious motor vehicle accident.
Frank’s truck veered off the road and crashed into an embankment, tearing the cab right off of the trucks frame. Frank was airlifted from Ticonderoga, New York to Burlington Vermont Burn and Trauma center.
Frank suffered severe third degree burns covering 54% his body, mostly his legs. He was induced into a medical coma, so he could recover from his painful and massive injuries.
A little over a week at the trauma center, Frank was again airlifted to Lehigh Valley Burn Center in Pennsylvania for extensive surgeries and recovery. Frank’s legs were so severely injured, the medical team concluded that a bilateral above the knee amputation would be required for Frank to survive.
Kidney failure which set in required 24 hour dialysis for his blood to be correctly filtered for him to live.
Frank has been through numerous surgeries to skin graft his open wounds and allow the healing process to take hold.
Well as of this writing March 30th, Frank is surviving and recovering! He has come back from the brink of death to now live! Many prayers were answered for us all.
This Go Fund Me will be utilized for Frank’s recovery, helping with medical bills, transportation, and future housing to help him with his newly transformed life.
The Pasqua family cannot express how grateful we are for Frank to still be here and alive with us.
Your contributions will be utilized to their fullest for Frank to continue living a normal and healthy life.
We’re also having a benefit concert for Frankie April 30th at Buddies Tavern in Parlin New Jersey. My band Out of Bounds and JD Deservio from Black Label Society will be performing. It’s a cool little watering hole. Casual dress. The more that make it, the more love we can spread to Frank.
Pass the word.
