At around 12 a.m our friend, Alison Paredes and two other friends were in a car accident, unfortunetly the accident caused her to be severly injured. She was transported to ICU at the South Nassau Communities Hospital. Nineteen hours later she remains in intensive care and is going to require several surgeries such as femur reconstruction , oral , eye , and rib surgery. We are asking for anyone to please donate for this cause to not only help cover medical expenses but also help us support the family to make a difference for our friend.
We would like for you guys to take a moment and consider this tradegy and help us in any way possible, visiting our friend and looking at her unconconscious broke our hearts, seeing how hopeless her family is , is truly devestating which is why any contributions will be highly appreciated. We also ask that you keep her in your prayers.

We will keep you all updated upon her recovery and would like to thank you in advance !

It has been a month since our friends got into a tragic car crash. I know this Gofundme page is for Alison but I wanted to update you guys about the other two who were in the car too. Alison's brother Baldwin who is okay and always by Alison's side in the hospital and Chris who is now home and receiving physical therapy. As you guys know Alison got jaw reconstruction on Monday and it went well. She was supposed to get her eyelid surgery but unfortunately it was not done. It was decided that it will be done along with her eye surgery hopefully soon. We wanted to remind you guys to keep helping us spread the word about Alison's story since we still haven't reached our goal. Alison and her family need as much donations as they can get because they do not have health insurance and every single surgery she has had or still needs is very expensive, aside that being in a hospital is very expensive especially that she is in a trauma hospital and will be needing physical therapy too. Alison's mom (Brigith Rivas) will be in charge of all the money we will have raised. All of Alison's family and friends want to thank you for all the support and help that has been given to us, it all means so much to us.
P.s. If you guys have any questions, concerns or suggestions in ways to help us reach our goal email me: Forero.mariaa@gmail.com

Good morning, I hope everyone is doing well. I wanted to update you guys with some good news about Alison. She got transferred to North Shore University Hospital and is now awake and is doing so much better. She has eyelid and jaw reconstruction today at 3pm. We ask all of you to continue having her in your prayers and that the surgeries go well. She will be having one more surgery in about 3 weeks for her eye and hopefully that will be the last surgery she has. We got the chance to tell her about the Gofundme page we made for her and she got very happy. As you guys know from the last update we mentioned she was getting tracheostomy surgery and she now has a tube in her throat which helps her breath but when air goes in it, it does not go through the vocal cords meaning she is not able to talk. I will update you guys later on when there is more information and I will be posting up pictures soon. Thank you to all who continue having her in your thoughts and prayers and continue to donate and spread her story.

Alison continues to progress as the days go by, we've all been so busy we hadn't had a chance to update everyone. Alison was put under paralysis for 3 days because her vitals started to decline.Over the weekend we got approval from the doctors on transferring Alison to another hospital which is specialized for her condition. The Doctors are just waiting for Alison to be more healthy and stable to be transferred over to a hospital in the city. On Tuesday March 29,2016 she got femur surgery, on Wednesday March 30,2016 she got tracheostomy surgery and on Friday April 1st she got gastrostomy surgery. She is awake and aware of the condition she is in but she isn't aware that she was in a car crash. She still has many more surgeries to go but she needs to recover from the ones she just got. We are all so grateful for all the donations we have received from family, friends and strangers. The smallest amount really does make a different. Our ultimate goal is 50K since Alison does not have health insurance and has many surgeries to undergo including cosmetic surgery. We also estimated that Alison will be in a hospital for about 6 months or more. I want to remind you about the Facebook page we made for her (help Alison recover) and the new customized link (gofundme.com/Alisonparedes)

It's been a week since our friends tragic car accident, Alison has been going through a lot of care since there has been many difficulties with undergoing her surgeries with her state of being, hopefully if all goes well and she remains healthy enough by this upcoming week they will be able to perform the surgeries she needs. After speaking to the doctors we have come to realize that the plastic surgery for the reconstruction of her face and other things will be more than what we imagined. This is why we raised our goal to make sure her expenses help her recover. It will be taken care of with the help of all of you, once again thank you to everyone who has donated and still continues to donate. We also ask for you all to keep Alison in your prayers.
P.s we made a Facebook page for her it's Help Alison Recover.
