Medical Expenses

I am single parent and i have one child who is a wonderful young lady. August 2010, my daughter was hit by a train. She was rushed to the hospital  with multiple life threatening injuries. When I arrived, I was told by the doctors that thy didn\'t think she would make it.  My child had bleeding and trauma to her head, shattered pelvis, broken left arm, shattered right leg, spine was broken and detached from her pelvis, and a hole in her right buttocks that is so big you can put your hand into it and touch her spine. She had many surgeries within that first week, was in an induced coma, had both her lungs collapsed and was intubated for 4 weeks. She was in physical therapy and occupational therapy. We didn\'t\' know if she would be able to walk, stand or sit on her own. She was in rehab for another 2 1/2 months. In that time period, I had taken a family medical leave to be with my daughter and wasn\'t paid for my time out of work. When I did return, I only worked part time. I have incurred enormous medical bills and have also fallen behind in my personal expenses. My daughter still has more surgeries that need to be scheduled and have not been able to afford for the ones that have taken place. Needless to say, this year has been a parent\'s nightmare and I appreciate any help that you can provide.

Thank you!
