Bro. Mike Pingatore was in a serious car accident on February 19th during a storm that led to anemergency surgery to reconstruct his spine. He is lucky to be alive but is paralyzed from the waist down. He has a complete fracture to the T10 ASIA-A. Basically broke his spine, ribs and sternum with serious damage to the spinal cord. He is also currently suffering from minutes to hours of amnesia at a time.
There are endless costs that resulted from this accident. Medical bills for these procedures are not cheap and any assistance is appreciated. House modifications for accessible adaptability are also needed, i.e. ramps, wheelchair, shower-chair, adaptive features for car, catheters, medication, palpation physical therapy etc.
Mike was a generous and valuable community member that always helped others in need. He was Chico-Leland Stanford Lodge #111 Senior Deacon for three years, he recently graduated from Chico State, he was often seen working the booth for his aunt's pomegranate ranch (Skylark) at the Chico Saturday Farmers Market, and he had started Lineman's School in Oroville this year. Mike is now the one who needs help and it would be appreciated if we could be there for him however we can.
