How many times have you heard of a story about a dangerous road or seen an accident and thought to yourself “I know it happens, but it would never happen to me.”
This is exactly where Sergio Cervantes found himself in October of 2021. At the time, Sergio was 21, an avid team roper, and working his way through paramedic school. He was driving to New Mexico from West Texas after a long day of roping and hauling horses. While on Highway 128, which is a known dangerous stretch of road, he was in a severe accident. He was taken from the accident by a care flight and woke up in ICU with a dislocated radius, a right femur that was broken in two places, fractured right hip, shattered left forearm, amputated left hand, and the news that he had lost both of his horses in the accident. He spent 3 weeks in the hospital, has had 8 surgeries so far, and is struggling to find the proper prosthetic. Through all this, Sergio still has an amazing sense of humor and is determined to beat every timeline given to him by his doctors.
To aid in the ongoing medical expenses there will be a charity roping event held on February 5th and 6th in Andrews Texas. If you will be in the Andrews area, please consider stopping by to support Sergio and watch some roping – there are a couple EnerCorp cowboys that will be competing. If you are not from the area, you are still able to donate to Sergio's venmo account at https://venmo.com/u/SuperSergio.
