[EVENT] The Family Of Dennal Joiner Presents: All White Benefit Gala Fundaraiser
DENNAL’S TRAGIC STORY
On February 10 2012, Dennal Joiner a devoted father and husband, was tradgically struck and thrown 100 feet, by an out of control car near the Philadelphia Zoo, as he stood on the sidewalk waiting for a transit bus to get home from his job as a School Bus driver. After this unfortunate accident, Dennal lay in a Philadelphia hospital on a ventilator, with a swollen brain for two weeks, along with multiple injuries to his body. As a result of this accident Dennal suffered from a severe frontal lobe brain injury, a punctured and collapsed lung, broken ribs, a broken arm, and two severly broken legs. He has had to undergo several long hours of extensive surgeries and a skin graph.
For almost 2 months, Dennal received his daily nutrition via a feeding tube to his stomach and breathed only as a result of a tracheotomy assisted by a constant flow of oxygen. Dennal has just begun to speak using small words and only moves his body with the assistance of family and medical staff.
