Ana is at Wake Med in North Carolina recovering from a serious car injury. Her leg has been amputated as a result of the crash in which a man without a license hit her and then fled the scene. She will be in and out of surgery for the next few days. When she wakes up she will endure a life changing moment. Losing a limb is never an easy obstacle to overcome for anyone and with the healthcare changes currently being revamped there is no telling how much this could affect her recovery. Ana is a recent graduate from Full Sail University with a very unique talent. Although, given that Full Sail is a very expensive school to go to she will be having many financial issues with medical bills and college loans. I as well as all her friends and family are wishing for a full recovery and hopeful future using her talented skills with as little complications as possible.

If you would ever meet Ana the first thing that would come to mind is how talented of an artist she is both traditionally and in the Computer Graphics world. Being a Computer Graphics artist was her dream and nothing was stopping her from reaching the top. Right out of school she received an internship with Insomniac Games, one of the leading gaming companies in the United States. She was onto bigger and better journeys when she was struck by this tragic accident.

I ask that if you cannot donate for this cause, to please just send prayers to this young girl for a full recovery and bright future. Please share this page to all your friends and hope for the best in this mournful time.

Thank you for your time and compassion for this tragic event.

Those types of drivers just makes me want to go nuts on them. How very sad this has happened to this girl, I lost my father and sister this year in a few days of each other then I almost lost my mother she just had a stroke, but the reason I'm telling you this because my mom's a strong woman, and I bet you are too! So I'm passing my mom's strength to you and you will recover just keep positive an stay strong!

Hi Ana, I do not know you but once I read your story my heart went out to you. I was in a hit and run accident and I feel outraged that there are people in this world that could do that because I couldn't. This just shows how strong you are, I currently go to Full Sail for Music Business. That's how I saw your page. I will spread the word and have your name in my prayers. Follow your dreams :) you are loved by so many!!!

Hi Ana. I was really saddened to hear about the incident you were involved with. It's truly horrible. Best of luck with your recovery. I'm sure you'll be back doing the things you love sooner than it feels right now.
