ABOUT ACCIDENT SURVIVORS FUND:
ACCIDENT SURVIVORS FUNDwas created in
honor of Iosif Aminov, who was in a horrible accident which resulted in
burns to over 65% of his body and severe internal damage to his lungs.
Aminov had to endure over 33 surgeries and it took nearly a decade for him
to make a full recovery from the accident. While he was struggling to
recover, he had the vision of starting a non profit organization that would
help others financially during their fight to survive and help them to their
road to recovery. The mission of the Accident
Survivors Fund is to seek out individuals who need assistance after
they have been affected by a tragic event, in their greatest time of need.
