Javier Perez was a principal at South Dade High School in Miami, Florida, beloved by all his students and colleagues.
Sadly, he suffered a devastating accident: He was run over by an allegedly drunk driver, and the accident caused him to lose both of his legs.
After the accident, he underwent a drastic lifestyle change, not just physically but also mentally and emotionally. This included having to reply on his wife for the family’s transportation.
“A lot of times we take that for granted but realistically the last about five months that Ive been home you know unfortunately we have two kids, they have activities, the different things [they do, and] we only have one driver, my wife,” he said.
Javier had gone to the South Dade Toyota shop to pick up his car, which was being outfitted with hand controls so he could finally drive again.
Instead, he got way more than he bargained for.
South Dade Toyota got him a brand new minivan, outfitted with the controls he needed, free of charge. The gesture moved him to tears.
Its finally that freedom that Ive been seeking.”
But the surprises weren’t done yet.
I had an MLB player call me this morning, Hector Olivera, and he said that the other wheelchair that youre going to need, hes going to give that to you for free, announced Alex Vega, with The Auto Firm.
The outpouring of support was both unexpected and tremendous.
Unfortunately we see a lot of the negative stuff a lot of times on TV but there are so many good people its incredible, Javier said.
