Aid for Amanda

$20,297 of $15,000 goal

Raised by 354 people in 16 months
Created July 27, 2017
Tuesday, July 25, 2017 was just a normal day for Amanda Jaczkowski. She was riding her bike to work when she was struck by a gravel truck. She was rushed to the hospital in serious condition with a laundry list of injuries. She is requiring a multitude of surgeries and her hospital stay will be long. Due to this lengthy stay and the nature of her injuries--particularly her leg which is in very bad condition--the doctors are estimating that she will be out of work for three months. 

Anyone who knows Mandi can attest to her love of life and passion for helping others. She leads chants for the Detroit City Football Club every match day, standing high on her capo stand with smoke bombs lighting up the pitch behind her. She gives back to the community constantly by helping to revitalize Detroit, assisting the homeless, and helping refugees get acclimated to the new country. You can never keep Mandi off of her feet--between swing dancing, polkaing, and playing soccer, she is always moving and full of the kind of energy that inspires others to join in. That being said, the injuries and recovery time that Amanda is facing are going to be particularly hard on her and when coupled with the medical bills and time off of work, she needs both emotional and financial support at this time. Mandi has spent so much time giving back to the community and spreading love to those around her, it is the least we can do to rally behind her in her recovery, just like we would at a soccer match. Above all, Amanda appreciates the prayers and good wishes. She thanks everyone for their donations and will pay it forward Amanda-style.

(This project is being maintained by Jillian and Donna Jaczkowski, Amanda's cousin and mother, respectively.)

First of all, thank you to everyone for their generous support. People I know and people I don’t know have rallied for me. It means more than words can express that so many people came together to make sure I’m as comfortable as can be in this situation. So far I have had 9 surgeries and 3 major dressing changes under anesthesia. It has already been a long road. Good news today was that the skin graphs show signs of taking.
As I move towards the next surgeries, it leads me to rehabilitation. I know that I am progressing due to family, friends, and all of you who have reached out to help. It’s going to be a long recovery. Thank you again for taking a load off my soulders as my bills (especially cell phone so I can be in contact with you) can be paid. Never would I have imagined being in this situation but your support has been overwhelming. I cannot express enough gratitude to say half of what is required. Thank you all.

We would just like to extend our utmost gratitude to everyone for their continued prayers and support. It truly speaks testament to Amanda's amazing character. The family would like me to share that Mandi's latest surgery went well and the surgeons came out smiling and optimistic. She has been communicating via note-writing, asking about the soccer playoff games and making jokes and being her typical goofy Mandi-self. On behalf of her and the Jaczkowski family, thank you again and more updates to come.
