Carrie Rinehart's road to recovery

16836100_1482101147.3539_funddescriptionOn 9/14/2016 my 1 1/2 yr old nephew and my sister Carrie were in a life altering car accident; due to a young 17 yr old girl texting while driving (per office police record,) hitting them head on going 50 miles an hour. My nephew sustained only minor injuries: abrasions, bruising, and slight lacerations. Carrie however, was airlifted to the nearest trauma hospital. The right side of her body had been crushed causing damage to her spine, ribs, ulna, wrist, femur, tibia, and almost full removal of her ankle. Due to the damage to her ankle she underwent 5 surgeries. Their car was totaled which they still had a lien on. Now having only one income, they are in need of assistance to pay their rent, utilities, and groceries. Myself and my family wish we could be in florida to help her more but we are doing what we can from Minnesota. Anything you could donate to help in their time of need will help!! Thank you!!
