Fundraising for Katie "Pudge" Zeman

Katie Pudge was involved in a serious accident three weeks ago, on February 11th. She spent a week in the Critical Care Unit at Good Samaritan Hospital where she underwent a laminectomy surgery. She was recommended for rehabilitation and spent the next week at Marian Joy Rehabilitation Center, where she worked extremely hard and as a result surpassed all of her goals. While Katie has made remarkable strides, given the severity of the injury she sustained, there is a long road ahead with physical, occupational, and speech therapy that she will need to do in order to continue healing. She will need to continue with follow up doctor appointments and the rehabilitation to ensure her recovery. Katie is now home, but still receiving needed help from family and friends. She has been off from work since the incident and is currently restricted from working. With out being able to work and still having every day expenses, she will need help financially. We are asking you, to please donate to help Katie in this time of need. She would forever be grateful to you! Katie is so appreciative and overwhelmed by all of the love and support she has already received! Thank you all for being a part of Katie's life!!
