On thursday the 20th of march 2014 my lovely niece and her sweet fiance were in a horrific accident. Someone ran a red light and t-boned their tiny car. Alex was able to walk away with multiple bruises, scrapes and airbag burns (thank goodness). However my niece Lara wasn't so lucky. She was left with multiple fractures on the base of her skull, her pelvis, every rib has buckle fractures on her right side, internal bleeding (contusions) on her liver and lung, but she's alive! We are so very thankful they are both still with us. Many hearts are breaking for these two lovely people. Her goal is to walk down the aisle in 5 months unassisted at her wedding. These two live paycheck to paycheck and with this happening she will not be able to work for at least 3 or so months, any little bit helps. They are in desperate need of rent/food funds. Family and friends are really doing the best they can, but that only stretches so far. Please, if anything learn from their story, and don't drive while distracted. Your text, call, makeup, etc can wait. No one wants to be the cause of this kind of life change. Thank you for your time
Love all of us

Update! Spent the day with Lara, rolled her to get coffee! So far a puke free day! So it's good news! Still broken, rolling in a wheelchair and hobbling short distances. She's a tough lady so hopes are high for a full recovery. Bills are piling up so every little bit helps. 4 to 6 months left not being able work. Thanx again for all your support! We love you all

Update! Lara is healing slow but is at home! We still have months and months of at home recovery before she can even attempt PT on her lower half. Her stomach isn't being too nice, so eating is still a task. With all this said, she's in great spirits! We can't thank you all enough for everything. Have an amazing day!

PT is going great. Learning how to maneuver her new "temporary" ride. Lots of upper body strength training right now. Hoping her pelvis will heal enough so she can go home. Hospitals are no fun!

Today was a good day! Our lovely hairdresser Makelle from cultures salon came up to the hospital and did Lara's hair!
Things are looking up, still PT 6 times daily. Nights are rough, but she's a tough cookie. It's looking like she will be in lock down for at least one more week.
Thanx for your continuing support.
Xoxo
