Help Brook with Medical Expenses

Hello family and friends,
As many of you know, Brook was about to begin her final semester of didactic learning at the Ross University of Veterinary Medicine on the Island of Saint Kitts. Unfortunately, due to a scuffle with a shark, those plans have changed.
On Saturday, January 9, 2021, Brook was attacked by a tiger shark while on her exercise swim with her Saturday Swim Group. She sustained injuries to her left leg where it attacked, as well as her right hand that she used to fight it off- punching it in the nose and trying to gouge its eyes. After an amazing rescue by the kayakers and swimmers of the group, the coast guard took her to the hospital for emergency surgery. She has since been transported to Houston where she is being closely monitored. The recovery process will be tough and lengthy, so we appreciate any donations as expenses are likely to be significant. 

The virus has curtailed visitation and outside contact for the time being. Please coordinate with Paige or Calli Toussaint for contacting Brook and/or more information.
