On April 1, 2017 I was in a horrible automobile accident. I am forever grateful for all of your calls, visits and prayers. Through the grace of God (and the ICU staff at Cedar's Sinai Hospital), I was given another chance. I am overcoming substantial brain trauma and am lucky to even be alive.
Prior to the accident, I had just begun my career in the Child Counseling field and found it to be very rewarding. Of course, this position came with medical benefits, but my coverage is not quite enough to cover the extensive care that I received from the hospital. My carrier, Kaiser, paid only a portion of the bill. They paid a great part of it, but left a nice portion unpaid for me. I still have not returned to work and I have exhausted my available funds to pay my bills. The man that I am won't let me allow my parents to exhaust any more funds on my behalf, as they have done too much to this point.
It took me awhile to even look at these pictures that I am sharing with you without being overcome by emotion. (Caution: Some are graphic) You will also find a recent photo of me and my mom. You will see that I have come a long way. Please accept these pictures, as I have, as a reminder that life is precious and can be taken in an instant.
At any rate, I ask of you that can, please donate to my GoFundMe account. Thank you for reading. God Bless you all.
