On July 8th, Alexandra was in a devastating car accident on Route 128 near Danvers, MA. She was struck outside of her vehicle and is currently in critical condition where doctors have given her a 0-1% chance at full recovery. Alexandra has a loving family and a beautiful daughter who are not losing hope and praying everyday for her recovery. Although Alexandra's family is very humble and had no plans of making a GoFundMe, a great following of family and friends have encouraged the making of this donation page. Most importantly, we are asking for prayers and positive energy for Alex from all of you. However, due to unexpected medical expenses and other associated expenses, we are asking for donations here. Anything and everything will help this beautiful and faithful family find what little peace they can during this traumatic time.

Most recent update:
TOMORROW (07/11) AT 8 am.....Alexandra's team is still waiting to perform an additional test of her brain, called Susceptibility Weighted Imaging (SWI). They must slowly bring her out of the "medically induced coma", to see how her body responds in the hopes of performing this test to further determine what if any damage there is.
"SWI is most commonly used to detect small amounts of hemorrhage or calcium."
In Alex's case, she suffered a TBI, traumatic Brain Injury. This test is used for:
"The detection of micro-hemorrhages, shearing, and diffuse axonal injury (DAI) in trauma patients is often difficult as the injuries tend to be relatively small in size and can be easily missed by low resolution scans. SWI is usually run at relatively high resolution (1 mm3) and is extremely sensitive to bleeding in the gray matter/white matter boundaries making it is possible to see very small lesions increasing the ability to detect more subtle injuries" wikipedia
keep those good thoughts and prayers going!!!! Not out of the woods yet, but stepping in a better direction!!!
