Hello everyone. 
Has most of you know my name is Melissa Cole, and I have 3 wonderful children; I also take care of my baby sister Ashley. 

Well, the night of January/7/17 she was struck in a hit and run accident on Shannette rd outside of Morrisburg, Ontario.  She flew/rolled at least 75 feet in a pile of snow. Her boyfriend and in-laws rushed to her side and called 911. She was sent to Winchester Hospital and trauma coded, where she was sent to the Civic Hospital trauma unit. She is in critical but stable condition and will need a few surgeries and long term rehabillitation. 
She has fractures in her left ankle, left hip, lower spine, and left ribs. She has facial bruising as well as lots of bruises from the car hitting her. She will have long term pain, and will need to learn how to walk, but with physiotherapy she will make a great recovery! 

I am hurting profoundly for my baby, she is my world. 

She will be in the Civic hospital for a few week then sent to Winchester hospital until stable enough to come home with me. 

We are asking for your help with gas, food, hotel stays, and anything Ashley or my family will need while we are transporting from Morrisburg to Ottawa everyday. It is going to take a toll with all 3 kids, but we are going to do everything we can for Ashley to come home strong! 

Prayers for a safe recovery and any help would be greatly appreciated. 

If you have any questions please contact me on facebook.

Thank you so much in advance!

Shes doing better today. Surgery is Wednesday or Thursday depending on the OR wait list.

Her spine injuries arent as severe as tt
he doctors originally thought but we do not know the full extent until they explore during surgery.

She does still have internal bleeding and has had 2 more transfusions.

She had an air boot put on her left foot today for her fractured ankle.

They will be putting a rod with pins to hold her pelvis/hips together.

But she is in good spirits. Had a nice bath and is eating.

Shes been smiling much more than I have. Im proud of how strong she has been.
