Chris Pino  BROOKLYN, NY
As many of you know, Krys was hit by a car almost two years ago. She sustained a shattered tibial plateau, torn MCL, torn lateral meniscus, shattered cartilage and a mild forehead laceration

You can read all about her experience thus far here

On November 20, 2013, Krys had her 4th and final surgery. They removed 2 titanium plates, 4 pins and 19 screws. A plastic surgeon closed two large surgical cuts with 89 stitches.




The surgery went exactly as planned and everything is looking great so far.

This is where you come in. Because of how much metal and hardware that was taken out of her bones, she is not allowed to walk without crutches, ride her bike or stand with weight on her right leg for up to 2 months. Working as a mechanic where she is on her feet all day and part time messengering which involves riding all day, Krys is unable to work until her leg has healed properly and she is given the ok from the docs. The hospital has agreed to help with some medical costs but this won't cover keeping a roof over her head or getting her to and from appointments for physical therapy.

Any money donated will go towards rent, cabs to and from PT and doctors appointments, prescriptions, rental rehab machines, food and nothing else.

Every extra cent donated that is not needed to cover the direct costs of being out of work will be donated to the New York Bicycle Messenger Foundation ( www.nybmf.com). NYBMF provides financial support to injured messengers unable to work in New York City.


Thank you all for your kind words and support along the way. Krys tells me all the time how it means the absolute world to her and she still keeps up being positive about everything she's been through the last almost 2 years.
