Recently, Velia suffered a fall that led to a dislocated knee and was rushed to the emergency room. After many hours they discovered she ruptured her popliteal artery and went into emergency surgery to save her leg. After 3 surgeries in 2 different hospitals, we all came to the realization that her leg was not improving. Before more complications developed, an above the knee amputation was required. August 29th marks the day Velia started her new journey.
Velia has begun physical and occupational therapy and is on her road to recovery. We hope her leg heals soon so she can be walking with a prosthetic leg. Even though her leg was taken, her spirit and faith in God remain strong.
Velia was still working to make ends meet and the loss of income will impact her family. We humbly ask that you help Velia in her recovery with a financial donation. Your generosity will help pay for medical bills, a wheelchair, purchase of a wheelchair van and home renovations to accommodate her needs. These expenses will improve her quality of life and allow her to be more independent. We thank you in advance for the outpour of love and support by all her friends and family!
