On Sept. 17th 6 year old Samantha Swartwout was involved in a serious car accident. The vehicle went off the road and traveled off the road for approx. 200 feet before being abruptly stopped by a tree. The brakes at no point were ever applied. The impact was immense ! The impact of the collision was such that the belt that was on the child opened up her abdomen area exposing her intestines. She also suffered severe head trauma. After undergoing surjury her head has been stiched up and they have managed to get
things back in place in her abdomen region. She is currently on a respirator with a breathing tube. They have also discovered a fracture of her L4 vertebrae. She has no muscle holding her insides in place, only skin and stiches. The fear at this point is infection. She is currently in ICU at MCV in Richmond, Virginia. Anything you can spare whether it be 5,10,25, 50 or 100's of dollars will add up and will help her Mother and will go towards any uncovered expenses. Words cannot begin to describe the road this child has ahead of her. Her Mother Shelly Martin thanks you in advance for anything you are capable of doing to help. Lets open our hearts and our pocketbooks and help these folks out in a time that no Mother should have to endure with their 6 year old child.
. This has been a fluid situation since its inception, insurance and means of covering medical expenses have been applied for but at the moment have NOT come through.That is tryin to be remedied. There will however be uncovered expenses that will not be covered and her Mother can use the funds as needed, She alone will have access to these funds.
Thank you and God bless
