Medical Expenses from Accident

On Friday January 19,  Rachel fell down a flight of stairs and suffered a significant brain injury. She's currently in critical condition at The University of Toledo Medical Center (UTMC) in a medically-induced coma.

Rachel is in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU). The doctors want to keep her in the coma so that her body can focus on healing. Right now we have to wait and see what happens.

Since the accident, her vitals have shown to be strong. Brain swelling she had experienced is down. Although these are positive results, she still needs round-the-clock care. The daily costs of ICU are high and will continue to accumlate. 

Rachel and her family could really use your support right now. Thank you in advance to anyone who can donate to help.

Other ways to help are to keep Rachel in your thoughts and prayers and to visit her if you are healthy and able to do so. The ICU doesn't allow anyone carrying a disease to enter or plants (such as flowers) due to risk of infection.
