Dear family and friends,
I had gotten into my accident on August 15th 2016, approximately 6:00 P.M. I happened to be riding my motorcycle, and a white pick up truck had taken a left into me. I was vigorously and violently tossed off my bike. My bike and I were laying on the grass, we were both tossed about 20-30 feet. My human instinct was to get up and try to understand what was going on, but I could not move. I couldn’t feel my left arm or left leg. Finally when I looked down at my body, I understood the severity of my injuries. My stomach was ripped open, left arm hanging on by a thread, ankle ripped apart, and femur fractured and popped out of the flesh.
Fully conscious, I was rushed to Cooper Trauma 1 Hospital. Besides a fractured hip, pelvis, femur, fibula, I had to get my left arm amputated – the same arm where I had the eternal promise of God imprinted. I was in a 8-hour long surgery, which was followed by series of surgeries thereafter. Through the six-week hospital stay it was hard for me to see the end of the road and see things get better. At the time of the accident I was a very outgoing and active 21 year old. For that to be taken away was very frustrating to cope with.
Throughout the next six months I dealt the cards of setbacks and other complications due to my traumatic accident. It was difficult. With all that said, I want to thank my friends and family. You have all shown me copious amounts of love and support. I truly appreciate how everyone made me feel just at home even though I was in the hospital. I appreciate all the sacrifices you all have made for me.
Thank you for all the prayers and thoughts. By God’s grace I was discharged from the rehabilitation hospital on February 28th, 2017, six-months and a half was a long time to be away from home. I still have a long battle but I praise God that I am alive. My favorite verse will remain embedded in my heart forever and I know that God has a purpose in saving my life. I humbly ask for your continue prayers for my life.
Ankit Gohil.

  1. t was during these trials did we realized how blessed we are to have had the support of family, friends, neighbors, community and our Church families. It was not easy for Ankit to sustain so many surgeries or for us as parents to see our son suffer. But we Praise the Lord Our God that he provided the strength and courage as well as support through you. We apologize for not acknowledging the help you all provided due to the circumstances that demanded much of our time and attention. The times spend with us, the visitations, meals and domestic help, the flowers, fruit baskets, chocolate treats, gift cards, monetary help, prayers, get well wishes and encouragement letters that we received remind us daily of life’s blessings. We thank each and every one who stood beside us and fervently prayed for us as we faced the most challenging times of our lives. The road to recovery is far from over. But we have faith that God’s plan and purpose will be fulfilled in His time. We humbly request that you continue to uplift Ankit as well as our family.
