Jackson Health Foundation Launches Fund for Good Samaritan's Medical Care

Jackson Health Foundation

​Jackson Health Foundation is encouraging the community to donate to its Miracle Fund to help cover the medical expenses of a South Florida man who was injured trying to assist victims of a car accident on June 25 on 79th Street in Miami. The man, William Hadeo, was hit by a car while assisting victims of a nearby car accident. Haedo was pinned under the car for approximately 20 minutes as a coordinated effort to rescue him unfolded. Emergency responders transported Mr. Haedo to Ryder Trauma Center where he is receiving care.

“Mr. Haedo’s act of selflessness is admirable and I am overwhelmed by the generosity of the community to assist this brave man in his time of need,” said Jackson Health Foundation President and CEO Keith R. Tribble.

Donations are being facilitated through the Jackson Health Foundation Miracle Fund. The fund helps provide quality medical services for those in need.
