I've started this Go-Fund-Me page to help out my best friend Colleen. For those of you who don't know - Colleen was involved in a car accident last year. She was rear-ended by another driver and sustained a significant injury to her neck and back. The injury has become much more evident over the past year and is now preventing even the most normal of activities such as cleaning her house and most importantly working to support herself as she had to quit her job due to the physical aspect of it. Colleen lives alone and has no one to depend on, no one to help with rent, bills, etc. She has exhausted her savings account and has had to rely on close friends to help with her bills and that's been very hard for her. She lives on a shoestring, has just the most basic of bills - but she is now facing the prospect of not being able to pay any of it because her situation is deteriorating and her pain has become unmanageable. Colleen just received the results of an MRI and her situation is much worse than we had anticipated. Colleen has hired an attorney and it may take months to know the outcome. She has suggested that she may need to start selling off her personal belongings - and I don't want her to do that. I am hoping that with a little help from her friends she can hold on until she receives the medical attention that may be required and get back on her feet. Anything you can do would be greatly appreciated. Thanks so much.
