Help Rosey Walk Again

On the 10th of September, 2018, my best friend, Roselynne Oliveira was on her way to pick up her grandma from rehab in Kearny, NJ at 11:30AM when she got into a car accident. It was raining heavily that day which caused her car to hydroplane. Her car did a 360 and the driver side of the car hit a pole.  The first night all of her family waited in the emergency room as she went into surgery that lasted about 8 hours. The police officers that took Rosey out of her car and doctors all were in disbelief that she made it out alive.

I know there are more details and fancy words that better explain the extent of her injuries, but in simpler terms her injuries included a bursted bladder, broken pelvis, internal bruising, a concussion, and stitches all over her body from the glass. When they went in to surgery, they reconstructed her bladder and had inserted an external and internal fixator to hold her pelvis in the proper place while it heals. The fragment of her spinal chord that had chipped is currently pressing against a nerve that makes Rosey unable to feel her thighs and causes an occasional shooting pain through her legs. She was mostly unconscious for the days following the accident, and when she had woken up she had a concussion and is unable to remember up to a week's worth of events after the accident.  
Miraculously Rosey, was able to wiggle her toes after her operation, which meant that she had hope to walk again. It's been a long and painful process but she has been working hard everyday to recover as quickly as possible. When she first came in she couldn't move or be moved by doctors without excruciating pain. She is now able to sit up, move her legs side to side, move to her side for short periods of time, and within the past couple days she has been able to get into a wheel chair! She has been pushing herself and was able to stay in the wheel chair for up to FOUR HOURS!!!! However, after almost 4 weeks in the hospital, her pain seems to be coming back more often and she is unable to stay as long in the wheelchair.
Rosey has now been in the hospital for a month and is ready to go to rehab to start moving her body more, learn how to walk again, and hopefully become more pain tolerable. Unfortunately, her insurance is denying any assistance in her rehab and for most of her stay in the hospital. With the medical bills piling up and her rehab not being covered, Rosey is in need of financial assistance to hopefully be able to cover the rehab and the hospital stay. Any donation amount to get Rosey back on her feet will be greatly appreciated.

The money will be directly deposited into her sister’s account, Katie Oliveira, in order to be used in all expenses this accident has caused. 

Thank you all for your time and efforts!
