Jessica's Road to Recovery

As many of you know, my sister Jessica was an innocent bystander in a car accident on Saturday, 3/9 which put her in critical condition and is currently being treated in the Ryder Trauma Center.

My sister and my mom were traveling north bound on the palmetto when the driver in the car in front of her fell asleep at the wheel and crashed into the median.  The axel of that car (a large pipe) came flying through my sister’s windshield and pierced my sister under her collar bone.  My sister underwent a 5 hour surgery in which they had to open her sternum (like an open heart surgery) in order to remove the pipe.  She has several broken ribs, multiple broken vertebrae, will undergo a collar replacement surgery - and this is just what we know as of today.  Each day that passes we are learning more about her injuries and the long road to recovery that she will endure. 

With God's help, and your prayers, we are confident that she will make a full recovery.  This road to recovery will consist of many months in the hospital, then rehab and of course therapies.

If you know Jessica, you know she is an extremely hardworking, dedicated Mother, who puts her 2 children 1st and goes above and beyond in all she does.  She is a friend to all and always finds a way to make everyone feel special.  

As you can imagine with any accident, or unexpected event, this will bring a financial burden to her.  She will have endless medical bills and will need to continue to support her household while not working to reach full recovery.

Any small amount we can support her with will help make her road to recovery an easier one.

Thank you for the bottom of our hearts.
