Promise & Hope for Sydney

$61,630 of $250,000 goal

Created August 4, 2018
Life can change in the blink of an eye.

Sydney, an active and vibrant 22 year old, fractured her C3 and C4 vertebrae after diving into the river to retrieve a raft.  As a result, she is unable to move her arms and legs.

It is unknown how much mobility she will regain. We do know that Sydney is strong, motivated and fighting hard

Her medical and living needs are tremendous and far beyond what insurance will cover. Just the wheelchair she needs ranges between $45,000 and $75,000. Her mother's home will need to be adapted with special accommodations for Sydney. A vehicle will need to be purchased to transport her to and from appointments.

Costs are mounting quickly.

Sydney is loving, caring and determine to defy the odds. Please help Sydney. You support is enormously appreciated.

Sydney is continuing to make strides in her recovery, and she so appreciates all the messages of love and support that you have sent her way and posted here.

We're sharing with you a story about Sydney that ran in the Tribune Review.

Luis Fabregas is the editor of the Tribune Review's Valley News Dispatch and the Pittsburgh digital editions of the paper, and he wrote a beautiful article about Sydney, her fighting spirit and the love she is surrounded by. Andrew Russel did the photography and put together an emotionally touching video to accompany the article. The article ran on Saturday, September 1, 2018, and you can view it here through this link: https://tinyurl.com/yb8sgqwz

Our Super Hero Sydney is fighting hard and making progress! She is now breathing on her own and able to eat. She undergoes four hours of painful, exhausting therapy every day. Fortunately, her spirit and determination rise to the task. Never one to settle for conventional, Sydney is defying her medical prognosis and has developed some movement in her legs and arms. Your warm thoughts and ongoing prayers are so appreciated by Sydney and her family. #SuperHeroSydney
