The Thomas Padilla Story
Out of nowhere a drunk driver ran through a red-light collided into us causing a car collision that paralyzed me. The drunk driver requested for me to be flown into the hospital.
Thomas was comatose for thirty-days and later, transferred to Rancho Los amigos Hospital for six-months. He attended therapy for speech, and exercising his muscles. After, his released he was then transferred to a covalent hospital located in Eco Park for one year. Later, I was transferred to Gardena Rosecrans Care Center for another year. After, my last hospital release my family moved from jalisco, Mexico. And we moved to The City of Compton. We have been residents for the past thirteen years.
Thomas gained his strength after accidents and hospitalizations enrolling into The Compton Community College and majoring in Web-site Designs. I was unable to graduate due to my illnesses. One day, I would like to continue in my major and be a college graduate. I’m sharing my story, hope that it may help someone else.
