Created September 15, 2018
On Thursday, September 14, my sister Bernadette Regan, the Joshua Tree Climbing Ranger, had a climbing accident while in the park. While the details are still filtering in, the good news is that Bernadette survived. She is currently in critical condition in Palm Springs, and on Friday underwent surgery to reconstruct her arm and leg. She sustained full body injuries including two skull fractures, although the doctors are initially saying that her head and back are fine. Even with insurance, Bernadette’s medical bills will be extensive, and I’m hoping to help lighten the burden. I know she has touched many lives in our little community. Please help if you can. We will continue to post updates on her status.

Also, I'll be setting up a calendar in the near future for visitors and meals for when she is back home. If you'd like to have access to the calendar, please send me (Liz) an email.

From Bern: I just learned that this fundraiser happened and I am full of love and gratitude for all your support. Thank you very much. The 3 month mark since my accident is soon and I am now at home in Joshua Tree continuing to rehab and heal. Thankfully I am out of the wheelchair and now hobbling around with the help of a footboot. The cast has been removed from my left arm and it is getting stronger. The rest of the broken stuff (use your imagination) is getting better as well. I am unable to drive, so I have been recruiting family and friends to get me around. Been up to the park a few times and took a few of my first 'walking" steps in Section 6. Feels good to be in the desert.

Hi everyone,

Thank you times one million for the continued support of my sister. She is going home! Finally.

A number of people reached out to me regarding a meal train and now that I have her release date, it's set up and ready to go. Please send me an email if you are interested in participating. I will share all relevant information via email.

Friends,
Each day, as many of you have visited can see, Bern continues to make huge leaps of progress both cognitively and physically. If you do have some time this week and are in the Southern CA area, please come and show her some love. Email me for info and please just let me know what your connection is to Bern.
Thank you!
