They were traveling below speed limit due to the harsh weather conditions when their car hydroplaned and they hit the jersey barrier nearly flipping their vehicle, spinning uncontrollably, and eventually ending up in a ditch. Their car is completely totaled and but by gods grace the two of them are still alive.
Several good samaritans pulled over to help and the EMT's were prompt. Drew was in extreme shock, pretty bruised up and suffered minor injuries. Immediately, they rushed Aleen to the hospital where she suffered injuries and had to spend hours under monitored supervision. THANK GOD they are alive and okay, and the most amazing part about these two is that when all this happened they were just thankful and grateful to be alive. Cars can be replaceable but these two are not.
I know myself how hard it is to ask for help, and so I am asking on behalf of her and Drew for any type of donation you could spare during these difficult times even if it’s a dollar, it will go a long way. Your MUCH appreciated contributions will go towards the cost of uncovered medical bills (MRI, CT scan), and hopefully towards obtaining a used vehicle again, as they had a lease, and will not be receiving any money from insurance to put towards a used car. Aleen heavily will rely on a used car to get to work, as a CNA, as she works as a caregiver for our loved ones affected by COVID.
Just on a personal note I have been struggling with my own issues in my life, as many of us have of during this year, and if it wasn't for Aleen and Drew's support, friendship and kindness I don't know what I would have done. This is a couple who would give their shirt off there back to help anybody. Everyone who knows Aleen knows this. It's time to pay it forward and help them during this difficult chapter if you able to. ANYTHING helps, and anything is so appreciated even if it’s just a share of this post.
