Hi my name is Christina Durinick and I’m raising money to help my dad, Rudy Durinick.GoFundMe. Thank you! Christina DurinickLast Wednesday evening, my father was driving to the Haddam Ambulance building to get the ambulance for a call. He has been a volunteer EMT for the town for over 40 years and absolutely loves doing this. On his way there, he met with an icy patch that caused his truck to flip. He also suffered a cervical fracture; the location of this fracture often results in becoming paralyzed or even death. He was EXTREMELY fortunate to have a small injury to that area. He is now home and in a brace for several weeks while he heals. He has done so much for so many people without ever expecting a thing in return, so he probably will be mad I am doing this…but he needs a vehicle, and times are not easy. So I am seeking any contribution you are willing to provide to help:
