Help Carmen Out!

In her words - 

"I would like to start by saying thank you so much for all of the love & support I have received since the accident. I am so very blessed.

On June 19th I was leaving the store with a friend and on the way home a giant rotten tree fell at the exact moment that I was passing it. It landed on the roof of my car smashing us like a bug. My passenger, by the grace of God, was uninjured but unfortunately my neck was broken in several places. I have a fractured C7, occipital condyle & a Jefferson Fracture in my C1. It is nothing less than a miracle that I am alive, much less WALKING... But I am!!! I have no memory of the accident.

I am getting better every day but I need your help. I am a bartender & haven't been able to work since the accident. It is so hard to pay bills & buy groceries when you can't work.

I am not exactly sure how long this recovery process is going to take but I am determined & I am strong. I am so blessed to still be here.

This is my car...





This is the tree that fell on my car...






Before the accident, Crossfit and yoga were the loves of my life and I am so looking forward to getting back to it!!!




My family & I appreciate all the prayers, love, and support you have given me so far. It would have been so much worse without you guys that have reached out!



Please remember, every little bit counts and even the smallest donation makes the biggest difference. Thank you all so much."
