Captain Maddison Crothamel

Donation protected
In the early hours of June 17th in Bristol Bay, Alaska, Captain Maddison Crothamel and the all women crew woke to a fire inside the boat cabin. Within minutes of realizing the fire, the crew escaped but not without serious injuries. The boat quickly sank and the crew withstood the frigid waters of the bay for 30 minutes before being rescued by good samaritans on a nearby boat. Due to severe burn injuries, Maddison was medically evacuated to the burn intensive care unit at Harborview in Seattle where she has started her long road to recovery.
Thank you for the love, support and prayers.

UPDATE: Maddison has been off the ventilator since June 25th and is really enjoying reading messages, letters and listening to voicemails. Please continue to keep her in your thoughts and prayers.
