Breanna Hoy`s Recovery Fund

Donation protected
On August 4th, Breanna (Bre) Hoy was in a tragic freak accident. She had stayed for the summer up at her school, Wisconsin Lutheran College (WLC), to work on the sports fields and get them ready for the school year. On that Thursday morning, she was operating an ATV/Gator and crashed into a chain-link fence. As a result of the accident, Bre was without oxygen to her brain for an unknown amount of time. Rescue efforts were made on the scene and Bre was transported via ambulance to Froedtert hospital in Wauwatosa, Wisconsin. She has remained in the ICU in a coma-like state.

After a rollercoaster of a week with various testing, optimistic looking signs and then devastating setbacks, Bre’s team of doctors believe her diagnosis is “delayed onset hypoxic leukoencephalopathy.” Bre’s road to recovery comes with a lot of unknowns, the biggest being time. With limited medical research on her condition, the doctors have guessed it can be anywhere from 2-6 months before Bre even wakes up.

If anyone is capable of overcoming this, it's Bre. Throughout her short 20 years of life, she has faced many challenges and overcome all of them, showing us all how strong she truly is. She lost her mother to cancer at 10 years old, but persevered and showed us her emotional strength. Despite this tragedy at such a young age, Bre strived to do her best in academics. She received straight A’s in school, made the Dean’s List every semester, and was part of the National Honor Society during her high school years at Mchenry East High School in Illinois. When she got to college, her academics remained a top priority. She maintained a GPA >3.5 and received the NFCA All-America Scholar-Athlete the past two years.

Although her academic career was impressive enough, she did not stop excelling in other areas of her life. She has always been very active and played many sports including; basketball, track and softball. Bre really took a liking to softball because it made her feel closer to her Mom, who had been a softball player in her youth. She played throughout high school and was scouted to play at WLC, which she gladly accepted. This upcoming season, Bre had been unanimously voted Team Captain as she was entering her junior year of college.

Our Bre is such a special girl in our lives and we just ask that you keep her in your thoughts and prayers as she embarks on this long road of recovery. If able, please consider donating to Breanna's GoFundme page to help her and her family with the accumulating hospital expenses.
