Last week on June 5, rising second-year student Shariq Jumani was hit by a car as he crossed Riverside Drive and 115th. After being rushed to St. Luke’s, he has had open-brain surgery, abdominal surgery, and orthopedic surgery for the broken bones in both of his legs. Jumani will undergo many operations and a year of rehab, but doctors are optimistic about his recovery.
However, this tragedy will leave him and his family with a high stack of medical bills. To offset the costs, his friends created a Gofundme today, encouraging his other friends, peers, and generous strangers to contribute. Jumani is described as an excellent scholar, kind community member, and “full of joy.” We encourage you to visit the page, where you can read more about him and contribute to his cause.
