 TOLEDO, OH
Sometimes in life we are fortunate enough to come across somebody so warm and genuine that it rocks our world.  Someone who provides love and friendship with such unselfish pureness that we reconsider the goodness in the world.  Janelle Noe is one of those beautiful souls.

As an NCAA athlete for the University of Toledo Cross Country and Track teams, running is a cornerstone of Janelle's life.  She wholeheartedly dedicates herself to her passion of running as much as she does to her friends and family.

On Friday, January 15th, 2016 a tragic accident left Janelle severely burned across a majority of her body.  Burns of varying degrees now cover her from head to knee.  She is faced with a very long, painful and scary recovery process in the weeks and months to come.

Plastic surgery and skin grafts as well as general hospital fees will be an enormous burden on Janelle's family.

I invite you to join me in supporting Janelle and the Noe family financially  through this unimaginably difficult time.  Now is our chance to come together and give back to a girl who has shared uncountable blessings with innumerable souls lucky enough to cross her path.

Janelle needs all of our care and kindness, but her recovery will be very expensive and requires our urgent financial assistance.  On behalf of Janelle's friends, family and teammates, I thank you from the bottom of my heart for your support.








Here is a link to the Toledo Blade newspaper article about the accident.

Unfortunately the media can be sensationalist in its effort to keep viewership. Therefore it is refreshing to see positive and truthful news stories beginning to break. A big thank you to 13abc News for spreading hope not fear!

Update from Janelle's mother:

Janelle was able to use a fork to eat some fruit as well as a couple spoons of mashed potatoes. She was able to pick her cup up off her tray and drink a bit. She was also able pick up her phone and look at a couple of messages for herself.

An update on Janelle's status from Janelle's mother:

We spoke with the plastic surgeon this evening (Saturday night). He said he believes most of her burns are 2nd degree and should heal on their own. There are a few more severe burns on her hands and arms that are less predictable. The doctor was optimistic that she might be up and running perhaps in a month. Janelle loves to run so this will be great news for her. Her being in great shape has really helped her in her healing process. Once again Thank you to everyone for the prayers, donations and well wishes. I read them to her as it gives her encouragement.

I've been in your shoes. Hang in there young lady. I too suffered 2nd degree burns from my thighs on down. Running previously helped me heal quicker. The doctors you have there are great. Best of luck on your recovery. You got this!

Janelle & Family, I am so sorry you have to suffer through this experience. I am a burn survivor of 38 years. I also suffered from a horrific accident and was burned over 40% of my body with 3rd degree burns and spent 8 weeks at St. Vincent's Burn unit. When others say they understand, or know what you are going through, they do not, unless this has happened to them. I would love to come visit and talk with you to give you support and encouragement. This will not be easy, but it will make you an even kinder, good hearted, considerate and understanding person than you already are. My thoughts and prayers are with you, and do not be surprised if you see me soon.
