Help Nika Recover From Hit & Run

Nika Saxiones, her daughter Sophia, and her family need your help. She is currently in the Trauma Care Unit at Parkland hospital recovering from being hit by a car at 9pm on Sunday on highway 183. She was driving to see a friend and there was a parked car in the right lane of the highway. She hit the car from behind. After getting out of the car to check on the other driver and see if everything was okay, the driver sped off. She started to take pictures of her car's damage and call the police when she was hit by another car. That car left her laying on the side of the highway and then drove away. Luckily, a bystander saw Nika, pulled her off onto the shoulder and waited for medical assistance. She is now suffering from multiple injuries including, a very badly broken arm, damaged spleen and liver and a punctured lung.

   Nika's always been known to be kind, genuine and brighten up the lives of the people around her. She has been active in the North Texas Irish festival since she was 4 and was at the Tipperary Inn regularly ( even "stole" Joe Simkins cap)!

Before the accident she was commuting from Lake Highlands to Keller to work part-time at Starbucks to support her and her daughter Sophia. Now she will be unable to work for quite sometime and is not offered long or short term disability.   She and her daughter need your help to cover medical bills and living expenses until she is able to work again. Please don't let her take another hit after this hit and run.  Nika is known to be a tough cookie but she can't do this alone.  

All donations go directly Nika.
