Help Hollie get better!!!

To know Hollie is to love her. She will give you the clothes off her back if it would help her friends. Now its our turn to show her how much we love and support her. If you don’t know me, my name is Jessica Smith, one of her closest friends in Buffalo NY.

For those who don't know, Hollie was found unresponsive on Friday (10/13) afternoon in her house. She has been on a ventilator since and in a deep sleep. The cause of this is still a mystery to the amazing health professionals at Buffalo General.

The absolutely amazing news is that on Monday, October 16th, Hollie is able to open her eyes for a few seconds at a time and nod yes or no to questions. She is still not out of the woods, but she is working her way out.

Due to starting a new job in just the past 6 months, Hollie will not have any sick time and is going to have massive medical bills. On top of this, there was some damage to the house in order for emergency medical service to get to her.

This money will be going to pay quite a few things. Window replacement, current bills that need to be paid while she is in coma, her health insurance premiums, medical bills that will start
Coming in, and basic money to live on until she can return to work. I will be paying anything she needs paid until she wakes up. I know Hollie would never in a million years ask for help. I along with her best friend Rose are more than happy to do so for her (and withstand her wrath when she wakes up). Please help in any way you can, the way you know Hollie would help you. Thank you.
