Help Jan Recover Fund

On March 14, Jan Hatt was shot by her husband and then he took his life. 

News Report Links:

The family is devastated and confused. Such a horrible tragedy. Jan has 8 entrances or exit wounds which has left her incapable to feel anything from her waist down or use her right hand. Her body is healing but this has given Jan a lot of challenges that she is going to have to face. She has insurance and she has applied for disability but the doctors are telling her that the costs of her rehabilitation and care are going to go way above any insurances.

Her family and friends are looking to help in any way they can. Any donation will help, no matter how little, and prayers are vital. The giving so far has been small but still appreciated. We have collected over $250 the first day. What I am asking is that you take this and share it to your friends and your Facebook friends. If we all work together we can help Jan.   And of course, your prayers are still appreciated. She has come a long way but has a long way to go.

Thank you!

Jan was sedated for about a week while her body healed. They did several surgeries during this time. One went into her right shoulder which fragmented.  She can't lift that arm right now but hopefully that is temporary.  She also had damage to her T14  (Thoracic Spine) so she is paralyzed from her waist down.  Her left calf so was shattered and she has a rod in her leg.  There were other injuries but these are the most serious.

This picture was taken about 2 weeks after.   She is with Sheri and a couple of other friends. 

4/21/2018 Jan's friend Sheri brought a friend that cut Jan's hair.  Jan says she is having a great day. She is feeling all dolled up and feeling perky.  

This is how Jan gets in and out of her wheel chair.  Jan is now getting in her chair every day. It is part of "getting around".   On a normal day she has about 5 hours of different physical therapies that she works on.   Speech Therapy, Occupational Therapy, Regular Physical Therapy are among those she does daily. She also sees a physiatrist three times a week.  She continually amazes  me on how she is progressing.  Each day she shares something else she has been able to accomplish.
