Carly's road to recovery

On Saturday the 25th of June Carly was pushed and trapped onto a metal fire pit and ended up with severe third degree burns from her lower back down.

She is currently in The Concord Burns Unit undergoing multiple skin graft operations and hoping to come home in the next few weeks. She has a long road ahead of her including the scarring both mentally and physically from the traumatic event.

Carly has been and will be bed ridden over the next few weeks, being woken every two hours for IV blood thinners for clots, pain relief and fluids/electrolytes. She has lost all feeling and sensation along the back of her legs, upper inner thighs and buttocks.

Her post operative treatment, councelling and skin therapy is going to cost her thousands.

There is no confirmation of financial assistance from the government, and if there is it will only cover 50% of her post operative treatment fees. Still leaving the family out of pocket

The money raised will be put towards her recovery fees and will hopefully financially ease her and her family's road to recovery. 

The below photos are the least affected part of her lower leg. These burns extend to her buttocks, inner upper thigh and undie line, and are far more severe, which we will not post.

A seperate account has been set up for donations.
