Cecillia Gonzalez -snake bite fund

My granddaughter 12 year old Cecillia Gonzalez was playing at a friends house  when they decided to go play by the creek.  On the way she slipped and her foot landed in front of hole in a tree. The Timber rattlesnake struck out and bit her twice on the foot.
She was life flighted to Children's Healthcare of Atlanta (Scottish rite). . She received 15 vials of anti venom, ICU care for four days and will have many more doctor appointments and physical therapy. 
The family would be grateful for any help received. They have been told that each vial of anti venom will be $15000 each plus the air lift helicopter and physical therapy.   Thank you

The two friends with Cecillia jumped over a ledge to reach the crrek. Cecillia thought about jumping but decided she might hurt her ankle. She didnt want that to happen because its  wasso close to softball season. Looking back she wishes she had jumped like the boys.
She went to a nearby tree thinking how cool the roots looked, then she slipped putting her foot right in front of a timber rattlesnake scaring him into defending his area.

As of today Aug.19, 2017 she is doing fair. She tires easily and will need blood work evey two or three days because of the venom breaking the blood cells down
