On August 5th our family received a phone call that will forever change us. Our beautiful Chelsea Taylor suffered a horrific, accidental fall from the third floor of her hotel in Italy and was only given hours to survive. However, in true Chelsea fashion, she held on strong until her parents, Mary and Shane, could fly to be by her side and using those stubborn Irish genes has been fighting strong ever since overcoming incredible odds, undergoing numerous surgeries and tests, and giving us all hope for recovery! Chelsea was so excited to be joining her boyfriend of five years, Luis, and his family on a long awaited vacation to explore Europe for the first time…seeing new sights, making new memories, and living the life any hard working twenty-four year old college graduate should.
In order to keep Chelsea fighting and get her back to living the life she loves, her family needs to be by her side every moment. They are forced to find long term lodging in a foreign country while continuing to run their home here, pay exorbitant medical bills that continue to mount, provide for intense rehabilitation, and finally BRING OUR CHELSEA HOME. To know this family is to know they are a family of four and are fighting with every ounce of strength and courage they have to keep their family together. It is our hope through this page to lighten the burden for Chelsea and her family in the only way we can during this incredibly heartbreaking time. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your generosity and ask for your continued prayers and positive thoughts at this unthinkable time, not only for Chelsea but also for Mary, Shane, and Connor who love her beyond measure!
At this time, Shane and Mary are focusing completely on Chelsea, so please direct all questions to Connor and again, THANK YOU!
