By
Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Trinity Brecksville Ohio

I know that many people here on Active Rain believe in the power of prayer as I do, so please take a moment and read about Rob Gangi, a ReMax agent in Port St. Lucie Florida. You can find more information on FB at Pray For Rob Gangi. Thanks for keeping Rob and his family in your prayers!

Rob Gangi

 

 

By Deborah Ball, RE/MAX Times Online Associate Editor

Those close to him say that Rob Gangi is the kind of person who brings light to others' lives, lends a helping hand to his clients and makes everyone laugh. This is especially true at his office, RE/MAX Masterpiece Realty in Port St. Lucie, Fla.

But now, Gangi's fellow Associates and an entire community are doing their part to bring some comfort and hope to Gangi's family following a freak skateboarding accident on Dec. 26. The incident, which occurred at his parents' home in North Carolina, left the 42-year-old Sales Associate in a coma with traumatic brain injuries.

The "Pray for Rob Gangi" page on Facebook has been flooded with well wishes and prayers from more than 4,000 people – many of whom don't know Gangi or his family. The outpouring for Gangi spurred widespread local media attention in the Treasure Coast Palm newspaper and on WPEC-TV. If you want to offer thoughts for the family or get information on how to help them, visit the Facebook page.

Gangi's colleagues pooled money to purchase gift certificates to restaurants in Asheville, N.C., where Gangi's wife and 17-year-old son keep vigil at his hospital bedside, as well as cards and donations to help pay for his ongoing care, says Broker/Owner Kathy Slusser. So far, Associates have contributed more than $3,000, and plan to send care packages to his family each week.

"We want his family to know we'll help them in any way we can," Slusser says. "Realtors at other companies are helping out, too, because he's such an amazing guy who has touched so many people. As an agent, he's dedicated to the job; he'll go out and help clients with things in their homes whenever they call. That's just the type of person Rob is."

  We had a friend a number of years ago who was in a coma for quite a while...vigilant prayers...thoughts...and great medical care....and one day....he sat up....and the rest is great memory making history for him and his family....his recovery was complete after some physical and speech therapy...see Rob as we do...as whole, healthy and complete...and so it is...the healing powers of thought and prayer are with him now and always as he continues his journey to good health.
