Samantha Swartwout Assistance Fund

$5,840 of $20,000 goal

Raised by 96 people in 26 months
On Sept. 17th 6 year old Samantha Swartwout was involved in a serious car accident. The vehicle went off the road and traveled off the road for approx. 200 feet before being abruptly stopped by a tree. The brakes at no point were ever applied. The impact was immense ! The impact of the collision was such that the belt that was on the child opened up her abdomen area exposing her intestines. She also suffered severe head trauma. After undergoing surjury her head has been stiched up and they have managed to get

things back in place in her abdomen region. She is currently on a respirator with a breathing tube. They have also discovered a fracture of her L4 vertebrae. She has no muscle holding her insides in place, only skin and stiches. The fear at this point is infection. She is currently in ICU at MCV in Richmond, Virginia. Anything you can spare whether it be 5,10,25, 50 or 100's of dollars will add up and will help her Mother and will go towards any uncovered expenses. Words cannot begin to describe the road this child has ahead of her. Her Mother Shelly Martin thanks you in advance for anything you are capable of doing to help. Lets open our hearts and our pocketbooks and help these folks out in a time that no Mother should have to endure with their 6 year old child.



. This has been a fluid situation since its inception, insurance and means of covering medical expenses have been applied for but at the moment have NOT come through.That is tryin to be  remedied. There will however be uncovered expenses that will not be covered and her Mother can use the funds as needed, She alone will have access to these funds.

Thank you and God bless

Hello everyone, thanks for all the concerns lately. Mantha has had a second surgery. She is working with mental health and The Brain Injury Association of Va. We are working hard to get her in a good place so she will be ready to start school in September. As of now she still can't go to school. She has anxiety issues and other things that they say are textbook. She has also been asked to do a seatbelt educational video for MCV hospital. She is happy about helping to make others aware of the dangers of improper seatbelt position. Wish us luck...

Reading this is couldn't even keep a dry face. I couldn't imagine the pain her and family are going thru. Having a daughter her age and they liked to play together. She was always happy and playing and freindly. I don't even know how to tell my daughter. It would break her heart. I hope that she will make a full recovery and be out playing and climbing trees. So from my family to hers you will be in our thoughts and prayers.
