Ava Harlow Recovery Fund - Calling all Angels!

Hello! We're a group of loving "Aunties" and this cherub is our dear friends’ daughter Ava. Ava grew up in Amesbury with her parents Jamie (Casey) Harlow and Andy Harlow. She graduated from Amesbury High School where she was a basketball and field hockey star. A member of St James Episcopal Church in Amesbury, you might know Ava from Something Sweet or The Natural Grocer in Newburyport, or Bath & Body Works in Seabrook. She’s a bright and promising college sophomore who’d hoped to pursue a career in Intelligence. She’s hardworking, smart, funny, and has a big heart.

On Friday, January 27, Ava was involved in a horrific accident where she was struck by a train. Thankfully she survived, but she has many very serious injuries and will require a prosthesis. We are hopeful for her recovery, but she will need several more surgeries and has a long, difficult road ahead of her.

Angels, we need your help. We are asking for donations to help with the enormous costs of Ava’s care, both now and in the future. She will need a lot of support in the months ahead (travel costs, therapy, in-home care, etc, etc) and we’d like to ease the worries of the family. No contribution is too small and is appreciated. And if you can, please share this in your networks. We want to spread the word as far as possible.

Thank you for helping Ava and her family during their darkest hour. Your support means more than you know.

On behalf of the Harlow Family and with gratitude,
The Aunties (Kim, Carolyn, Nancy & Maria)
