Help for Nancy Heinbaugh/car accident

On January 27th, 2014, Nancy Heinbaugh's life changed in an instant. This devoted wife and mother was driving to work before dawn when she was involved in a violent crash with a snow plow truck. A hospital medical lab technician, Nancy's job is to help save lives. But on this morning, she would be fighting for her own.

The impact caused her vehicle to slide underneath the truck, resulting in severe neurological and physical injuries. Nancy suffered multiple strokes due to her injuries and underwent surgery to relieve swelling and pressure on her brain. She was placed on a ventilator in the Trauma ICU and in the days that followed, underwent extensive surgeries to both of her legs.
Miraculously, she survived and is now breathing on her own through a trach tube.

While no one yet knows what the future holds for Nancy, she will require more surgeries and much physical rehabilitation. Friends of Nancy are raising funds to help offset the major loss of income and the enormous costs associated with her medical care.

Please give what you can and keep her husband, George, and their children, Andrea and Adam, in your prayers.

This is just the beginning of a very difficult and long road to recovery for Nancy. But with your help, it's a journey she won't have to take alone.

Thank you for sharing this request - and for your love and financial support.
