On August 10th 2016 Charity Air Ambulance funded a flight for Ronnie Bautista, a 35 year old man involved in a car accident that left him paralyzed. Ronnie was transported to Shepherd Center, a renowned facility specializing in spinal and brain injury rehabilitation.
Since the transport, Ronnie has been working diligently on his recovery and has made amazing progress. Ronnie is now able to stand with assistance from a harness. He has gained movement and muscle control and has even been weaned from the ventilator he was initially told he would never be able to live without. Though he is far from home and his loving fiancé, Ronnie remains in good spirits and is thankful every day for the support he’s receiving from his family and friends. We are so proud to have been a part of this life changing air ambulance transport and will continue to support this remarkable young man.
