Casey's Challenge

My daughter Casey was injured on Christmas morning when she slipped on some ice and fell while carrying gifts and other items. One of those items was made of glass and caused a large laceration on her right forearm. 
Initially it appears that there is some tendon damage, which prevents her from being able to properly move her fingers.

I need your help ! I am trying to raise money to help support Casey while she is unable to work. The money would be used to offset personal bills, unpaid medical expenses, and cover travel expenses for physical therapy. Anything would help!

Casey works as a Protege, at a hair salon in Connecticut.  She was working towards becoming a full time stylist, but now with this injury, she will not be able to meet that goal, and may potentially lose the clients she has worked so hard to get. 

Once Casey has surgery to correct the tendon damage, her future is uncertain. We expect she will need a few months to recover to get the function back in her hand so she can return to work. 

Casey has such a passion for the outdoors. She enjoys just about any outdoor activity. Her one true passion is Disc Golf. She has created some amazing friends and she absolutley loves to promote the sport. But again, with this injury, she may not be able to enjoy that sport any longer.

I could see in her eyes that she wanted to cry because she knows how serious her injury is, not only for her professional career, but also for her sport. Please help me bring her some relief.
