All For Alexa COVID Relief Fund

This GoFundMe has been started by the supportive and concerned co-workers of Alexa Montgomery (18 years old) for her Mom, Randi Tristan (39 years old) in the Greater Austin, Texas area. Randi came down with COVID on July 21st and was admitted to the hospital with respiratory issues. Soon after, her lungs gave out.

While recovering from COVID, Randi suffered an anoxic brain injury due to a cardiac arrest. As a result, she suffered severe damage to the frontal lobe portion of her brain. Randi is now on a ventilator and has been moved to a facility that specializes in patients in her situation. Tragically, she hasn't made any progress towards recovery. She requires around the clock care and the assistance of several devices to remove liquid from her lungs, amongst other things.

Your monetary donation will help Alexa and her family deal with the enormous medical costs associated with Randi’s care and allow Alexa to miss work in order to spend time with her Mom and contemplate final decisions with the rest of her family.

If you are looking for other ways to help besides monetarily, in recent days Alexa’s father Patrick has had several mechanical issues with his transportation in the Greater Austin area while he works double shifts in order to cover the family’s considerable expenses.

Thank you for your thoughts, prayers, and considerations towards providing a peaceful closure for both Randi and her family.
