Financial Assistance for Makenzie Hopper

On the evening of Thanksgiving, Makenzie (25yo) was returning home from her uncle's in the country (Southern Illinois) and missed a sharp turn, sending her car into the ditch. She was airlifted to St. Louis University Hospital, and has undergone emergency surgeries for a broken femur, wrist, and ankle.

Makenzie lives independently and is a full-time driver for Door Dash, living paycheck-to-paycheck. We've all been there at some point, right?? She will obviously be unable to work for the foreseeable future to earn a living. Without the help of her community she will not be able to pay for rent, monthly bills, and food, not to mention the tremendous hospital bills.  

Makenzie is a talented musician and constantly brings laughter to anyone who surrounds her with her sense of humor. She is the type of person who would do anything, for anyone. 

Please find it in your heart to help her out, as she faces a long road to recovery. We greatly appreciate your generosity!
