Hello, my name is Linda Kelley and I am raising funds to help my daughter Alicia get through her recovery stress free as she will be unable to work during this time. She will be struggling during this time to pay her bills as she is an independent woman who has been living on her own and goes to college and work full time. All funds raised will go towards Alicia’s bills. Early on Thursday, September 7, Alicia tripped while walking with her friends. Upon trying to stand, she looked down to see her knee bent backward.
She had dislocated her left knee, tore all of the ligaments in said knee, and suffered critical damage to the main artery that supplies blood flow below her left knee. This happened from just her tripping and hitting her knee.
After 11+ hours of surgery, they were able to perform a bypass of the damaged artery to her leg, which saved her leg. An external fixation device has been attached to her leg to stabilize her knee. It will remain in place for six weeks, allowing the knee to heal and reduce the inflammation. Then, she will need to undergo surgery to repair the torn ligaments.
Alicia's recovery process will be long and difficult. She will not be able to work for the next 90 days.
The Goal of $2000 will specifically cover the following monthly expenses for the next 3 months for Alicia:
She will be staying with her parents who will be taking care of rent, food, etc. Alicia's inability to work due to her medical issues and the need cover her personal expenses (listed above)is the driving force behind this campaign.
Love you all, and thank you for your prayers and support ❤️
