Rayan Massini

Rayan Massini awoke in the hospital in a lot of pain. He was confused and didn't know where he was or why he was there. He had no recollection of the severe motorcycle accident that almost took his life nearly one month prior. Rayan suffered many broken bones, two collapsed lungs, a broken pelvis and a lot of internal bleeding. "They didn't think I could survive all the injuries," Rayan said. "But the doctors at Ocala Regional saw that I was really fighting and did everything they could to keep me alive." Rayan was hospitalized for three months, had multiple blood transfusions, surgeries and had to learn to walk again. A warehouse laborer prior to his accident, Rayan is also now thinking about going back to school for physical therapy or some other form of medicine. "The accident really opened my eyes and made me want to do more than I was doing - something better - for myself and for others."
