Brain Surgery for Carrie Ortiz

Recently, my mom got into an atv accident in Gladwin, Michigan. She broke four ribs, broke her clavicle in three places , and has cracked her skull.
Because of the blood in her skull, doctors preformed surgery to try and eliminate any additional swelling.
Her cracked ribs have punctured her lung and her clavicle is shattered in three places, which will require an adotional surgery once the brusing dissipates.

I dont usually ask for handouts, but at this point we could use any help we can get. It doesnt matter if its .50 cents or 50 dollars. EVERY dollar raised will help my mom get back to doing what she does best, being a mother to my brother and I.

Proceeds will go towards medical bills, home nursing care, and medication.
