Help Kai Recover

On October 4th, 2018, my life would forever change. During the evening, I noticed fames raging from my stove. I instinctively grabbed the burning pot and tried to prevent the fire from spreading. Unfortunately as I tried to extinguish the flames, hot oil spilled all along my body. Thankfully with the help of my neighbors and the brave EMT workers; I safely arrived at the Cornell Burn Center. Once admitted my burns were scrapped, cleaned and wrapped. Ive been told the severity of my wounds range from  2nd to 3rd degree burns. The latter requires skin graphing surgery and other treatments. Doctors aren’t sure how long treatment will last. As a result, I went on disability leave at my job. My disability benefits does not cover my stay at the hospital. I know my healing journey requires positivity, hard work and dedication. However, it can be hard to focus when I have financial stress lingering in my head. I am asking for donations to help alleviate the financial burden for both myself and my family. Thank you in advance for reading my story.


Sincerely,

Kai Monroe
