Pray For Kayla

Raised by 84 people in 33 months
On Sunday, September 18th, Kayla was in a horrific car crash where she was hit head-on by a one tonne pick up truck towing a wood chipper.  The impact was so severe that it took firefighters almost an hour to get her out of the car where she lost half of her blood supply.  She died but they were able to miracuously bring her back. 
She has undergone at least 20 hours of surgeries in the past three days and there will be many, many more surgeries to follow. 
The doctors are in awe that she is still with us.  Our beloved Kayla is a fighter, a true warrior. 
She had her jaw broken in four places, her nose broken, her pelvis shattered, her diaphragm as well, her hip bone was sheered off, both legs broken, both ankles, one foot had to be reattached.  They're not even sure if she'll ever walk again. 
It has been touch and go with all of the injuries and operations she has had to endure. 
My brother, her fiancee has been by her side every step of the way and wishes to continue to do so. 
This is where we need your help.  With Kayla in the hospital and my brother by her side, they have no income coming in. 
We are not trying to be greedy by any means, but if people could help to raise some money so that my brother can stay by her side, it would be so greatly appreciated. 
The love and support Kayla and Chris have received has been overwhelming, and from the bottom of our hearts, we thank each and every one of you. 
We will keep everyone updated as to Kayla's progress as we continue down this long road to recovery.

Sorry it's been a while since we posted an update. Kayla is not out of the woods yet and it's very important that she not get sick. We hate to do this as we've had such an outpouring of support for Kayla but it's in Kayla's best interest. We respectively ask that only immediate family visit her while she is still
In the ICU. We hope you understand and we hope that we don't upset anyone.
Thank you all again for all your love, support and prayers, they are very much appreciated and needed. Xo

Where do we begin to thank each and every one of you for your love, support and your more than generous donations? We are completely overwhelmed. Kayla is such a fighter and has proven her strength over and over after each operation. The doctors are amazed
A HUGE thank you to all the ERT's who first attended to Kayla and got her out of her car. You are all her Guardian Angels. And to the doctors and nurses who worked miracles to keep her alive, surgery, after surgery, after surgery - what can we possibly say to show our gratitude for saving Kayla?? Words just don't seem enough.
Please continue to send your positive thoughts and prayers for Kayla. She still has a large operation to undergo on Wednesday and many more to follow after that.
From the bottom of our hearts, thank you for all that you have done. Xo xoxo

Yesterday was another baby step towards Kayla's recovery. They operated on both her ankles and were able to reattach her Achilles Tendon for her one foot that they had to reattach. The operations were both successes. There will another operation next week for her left ankle.
As well, next week they are going to operate on her hip. The bone was sheared in the accident. The doctors have been discussing the best way to fix it. They are an amazing team of surgeons and we have faith that they will come up with a way to repair the extensive damage that was done.
Please continue to keep Kayla in your prayers.
We can't thank everyone enough for all your love, support and prayers. They are appreciated more than you know.
