Support Kaylan in her fight

Kaylan and her husband Cainen were involved in a car accident on Route 120 in McHenry on May 2nd. Unfornately Cainen did not survive the accident.  Our heart goes out to Cainen's family at this very tragic time. Cainen was a wonderful young man and will be missed immensely. There was nothing not to like about him, he was always smiling and happy.  He was a wonderful man who loved his family and his wife.

Kaylan suffered a severe brain injury, and broke her pelvis.  She is not conscious and the family is bracing for a long recovery time that may or may not include continuing care, a rehabilitation center, and additional therapies.  She is currently in a long term care facility where she is receiving various therapies to help her to wake up.  The family has been informed that healing her serious brain injury will take lots of time, most likely months. 

My name is Karen Barba, I own Katco Development in Mount Prospect.  We are a small construction company, a family of people if you will.  Kaylan has worked here for 11 years.  Many of the Riemann family members also work here at Katco.  

We have set up this account to help provide funds for Kaylan during her recovery.  Due to all the uncertainty about her future, we want to insure that Kaylan has the opportunity for any type of extended care that would be needed,  and to support her during her long road to recovery when she wakes up. Your generous donation will help cover medical bills, living expenses and overall treatment that she may need moving forward.   All of the funds collected on this page will go directly to an account that has been set up by the family to aid in her treatment and supprt.

Please continue praying for Kaylan & Cainen's family. We are again overwhelmed with the outreach and support and thank you all from the bottom of our hearts!
