On what was supposed to be a joyous family getaway in Fuerteventura, life took an unexpected turn for Harriet when a car ploughed through an outdoor seating area critically injuring several people. Harriet witnessed the car swerving towards her five year old daughter and pushed her out of the way. This resulted in her being in direct contact with the vehicle at impact and left her with life changing injuries.
Now in Gran Canaria, after being airlifted to hospital, enduring three urgent surgeries, Harriet faces a challenging journey ahead. She has lost her spleen, suffered a severely damaged liver, and a life-altering spinal injury. The next crucial step is to bring her back to the UK, where she will need to be transferred to a specialized spinal rehab unit in an attempt to reinstate her quality of life.
Harriet is a wife, a daughter, a mother, a sister and a friend. Every little bit you can contribute will not only help bring Harriet home but also surround her with the love and care she so bravely gave her daughter. Join us on GoFundMe to support Harriet's road to recovery.
