Amanda Manis' Medical Expenses

Dear friends & family,
As many of you know, at the end of May I went to a rock climbing gym with a friend & my life was forever changed.  I fell, 30 ft, landing flat on my feet like a cat, breaking both ankles, & causing my L3 (one of the largest vertebre in the lower portion of my spinal cord) to burst.
I spent the month of June in the hospital, undergoing many surgeries & even more rehab. I have made good progress in my recovery, but there's still so much more work to do.
I have been overwhelmed by the kindness, prayers, & positivity from you all.  I would not have been able to come this far in my recovery while staying so positive if it wasn't for you.  I'm endlessly grateful for that.  
Still, I must ask to lean on you all once more.  As soon as I'm able to bear weight on my feet, I will begin to relearn to walk.  This outpatient therapy is costly ($50 per session, out of pocket) & insurance will only allow me 60 consecutive days of this rehab.  That being said, once I start I will need to go as often as I can so that I can learn to walk again.  On top of the cost of the outpatient rehab, I have a good deal of hospital bills, plus the cost of day to day living while being disabled.  
I've always believed in the saying "it takes a village."  I need you all more than ever now, my tribe of lucky little warriors.  No donated amount is too little. Please share this fundraiser, & know that I am forever thankful for all your love & support.
With love,
