Raised by 359 people in 3 months
My daughter Katie Scully got a bacteria infection ,Vibrio Vulnificas is a deadly shellfish infection. Katie was in critical condition and on life support for almost ‭ 3 weeks in Memorial Hospital. Her doctors called her recovery a miracle. Sadly she had to have her legs amputated below the knee.Katie is two months shy of 26. She was living in Savannah with hopes of finishing her school at SCAD. Katie is a talented artist with a loving spirit. I believe Katie will overcome this setback in time. I am asking for your support to help through the financial hardship caused by this infection. Thank you . Bob Scully

It’s February 1st and we got some more good news from our visit to the wound doctor today. Katie’s open wound closed about 50% from two weeks ago. He thinks we can be looking for a prosthetic fitting in about a month. She is working hard with her physical therapist and on her own. She continues to amaze me with her positive outlook and inner strength. She beams when she thinks about walking and moving forward. She speaks frequently about her gratitude for the support and love of the many wonderful people in her life.
Thank you for all you have done. You have carried all of us.

Happy belated New Year,
We would like to wish you a healthy and peaceful New Year. We had a wonderful holiday being home and enjoying our family time together. We have been busy establishing new doctors for Katie. Her right leg is healing well. She doesn’t need the wound vac and we are hopeful for a complete close in 8-10 weeks.
Katie continues to stay positive and her attitude amazes me daily. She realized are her challenges are not only physical but mental and spiritual.
( something we all have in common).
We don’t know how Katie got this infection. Her memory is weak in the days preceding her hospitalization. I saw in USA Today on January 8 , 2018 a woman died from the same infection from eating raw oysters. We urge you to consider What can happen if you eat raw oysters.
