Allie is wife to Ian, mother to a 16 month old girl, and a phenomenal chef. Ian and Allie are integral parts to the Charlottesville community, specifically the food community. 

Early Wednesday morning, March 1, 2017, while at work, Allie was involved in an accident. Her hand was caught in a meat grinder, and she was soon rushed to UVA Hospital. Unfortunately, the doctors were unable to save her hand and had to amputate her right hand up to her wrist.

We are raising money for the mounting medical expenses, the road to recovery for the Redshaws, and future prosthesis. Immediately, funds will allow the Redshaws some time and space to cope with this new reality and help pay for bills, therapy, childcare, cleaning, etc.

Please consider supporting this family during this traumatic season. Any amount will help alleviate the financial pressure that they will experience due to loss of income.

Ian and Allie are grateful for your love and support. We ask that you continue to pray for them and the journey they are on.

Thank you again to all those that have donated and supported Allie during this time. She continues her recovery and healing process in Charlottesville with support from some of the best doctors and local community.

We also wanted to share that the fine folks at Pippin Hill are hosting a food & wine benefit in honor of Allie, "Rally for Allie"! 100% of proceeds from the evening will go towards Allie's medical fund and recovery. More information and ticket purchases can be found here ( http://us2.campaign-archive1.com/?u=911a0d69f60324af68219c609&id=9b036c8966).

Again, thank you all for your love and support of the Redshaws!

Hi Friends!

Apologies for the radio silence on updates. It's, obviously, been a full few days!

I am happy to update everyone that Allie has been discharged from the hospital and is now back at home resting and recovering. Her second surgery on Saturday went well, and we are all grateful she is now home.

The Redshaws again continue to express their thanks and gratitude for the support they have been shown locally and from afar. You all have made an indelible impression on their hearts.

This will likely be the last public update for a while as the family now takes time to adjust and walk out the road of recovery. Thank you again for your thoughts, prayers, and financial support. I know every dollar raised will go a long way to help this family in this time of need.

Blessings,
Tiffany Nguyen

When I was 19, I had the same accident, lost the same hand (I was right handed). Now it's 53 year later. I understand what you are going through. If you ever want to talk about it or I can help in any way, let me know. May your recovery go well.
