HELP!ANGIE'S LONG ROAD TO RECOVERY


20723730_1496012[phone redacted]_funddescriptionHi My name is Suzie & Im trying to raise money for my older sister Angie who was involved in a motorcycle accident on May 7th 2017 and Life Flighted to the University of Iowa Hospital, after a lady driving a car went to turn and pulled out in front of Her. Angie had no time even to react or try to avoid the car causing her to T-bone the ladys car. Angie over top her motorcycle handlebars hitting the ladys car smashing the windshield with her upper body. Angie has suffered major trauma to over 80% of her body Angie has a lot of serious injuries to her face head & body. She sustained a broken pelivs and in multiple area's of her Pelvis it was crushed with bleeding. A deep wide gash in her groin which caused her to lose a lot of blood. Angie also sustained a broken neck in 2 places and she has a spinal cord injury and bleeding on the brain. Her face was fractured and broken in multiple places. Her jaw bone by her ear was crushed and a couple wide gashes to her face a few of her teeth were knocked out. She has bruising and bleeding to her lungs. Angie got 2 broken fingers as well. After getting to Iowa City she was rushed in for a emergency surgery on her pelvis to try and stop the bleeding. Since she arrived Angie has had 7+ surgeries since the day it happened not only to her pelvis but also her head & face. She will need more surgeries to come. I know she's a fighter she's dealt with a lot in her life. She's been a brittle diabetic since age 5 and end up getting breast cancer a little over a year ago which causing her to lose both of her breasts. She has had 2 different sets of breast put in her due to complications so not only does she suffer from diabetes and scoliosis in her back and neck she has been through breast cancer, she has never fully recovered. She deals with a horrible amount of pain from her cancer and back everyday and now this tragedy has happened to her leaving her in the critical state she's in. Our family is worried about her & how her life will be when she is able to be released which thats gonna be a long time from now but we worry about the financial strain for her with paying her everyday bills, loan payments other expences. But now the cost and expense of this as well the strain its caused for us with some of our family missing work so she's not scared & alone so we can be there to know minute for minute updates or what & how her condition is and with our travel hotel food ect. expenses adding up its getting harder and harder for us . We don't know what the outcome for Angie is or what her long term damages or will be or what kind of care she's gonna need or how this tradgedy of this outcome on Angie's life and her future hold. She was just transferred 6 1/2 hours away to Lincoln Nebraska to start her Rehabilitation until her next surgery. Also they don't want her to lose muscle mass or any kind of mobility she has. So I'm reaching out to everyone pleading for any kind of help or donation that they can find in their heart to help my sister Angie & our family get through this hard stressful time from this horrible tragedy my sister has indured and is trying to deal with as well as our family. We hope & pray we can get some help for Angie's financial situation to make sure that my sister does not have to worry about any financial strain. If you could find it in your heart to help our family take some of the financial burden off Angie when she does come home the money will be used for stuff she may need specialized equipment like a lift chair, bed or other furtiture, hand rails & other alterations to her home ect.  But also so we can be there where ever she is by her side so shes not alone through this horrible difficult time. Thanks for taking the time to read my sisters story and help her and our family get through this difficult time we greatly appreciate everything & anything anyone one can do is grately appreciated even if you can't afford to help we understand but would appreciate you keeping her in your thoughts -n- prayers . God Bless and Have a Wonderful Day.. Sincerely From Our Heart's Angie Rhomberg & The Rhomberg Family
The money will be put in an account. (This is TAX WRITE OFF)
