Fund for Deputy Vadnais

Earlier this year Marcie, a sheriff’s deputy, suffered a gun shot wound to her upper thigh resulting in a shattered femur.  Luckily the artery wasn’t hit but the round splintered her bone into 4 pieces which required immediate surgery.  The surgery involved putting a rod down into her bone and securing it with 2 screws near her knee and a bolt near her hip.  After nearly a month in the hospital and rehabilitation center she was sent home with an unknown prognosis for returning to her job or even walking normal again.  After months of physical therapy and multiple trips to see the surgeon it was decided the bone wasn’t healing right and another surgery was performed, removing all the existing hardware, replacing it, and doing a bone graft using bone from her pelvis.  She is once again home, still only able to walk with a crutch and not able to drive.  Throughout this entire ordeal she has had to cope with not being able to do even simple activities with her family, the constant pain, fear of her unknown future, and the mounting financial stress.  

In her spare time Marcie works with the Shenandoah Shepherd Rescue and Virginia German Shepherd Rescue as a foster and she has had to completely eliminate that portion of her life for now and unforeseen future.  She loves working with the rescues and desperately wants to get back to a place where that is possible.

Her biggest fear is not being able to return to her job as a sheriff’s deputy.  Her entire life that was all she ever wanted to do and she loves her job.  While she loves being a deputy, her true passions at work were working with Project Life Saver and being a member of the counties search and rescue team.

Please help us alleviate the financial strain as she continues to recover.33414874_1538444704153447_r.jpeg
