Jeanette Craig Rehabilitation Fund

Jeanette was involved in a very serious bus accident in South Africa. Several people were killed. She was air evacuated to a hospital in Bethlehem SA.  She sustained multiple injuries and has undergone several surgeries. She remains in the hospital and is imobile due to her injuries which include a  fractured pelvis.
She needs an air ambulance to bring her back to the USA. Regular airlines will not transport her because of the severity of her injuries.
The cost is estimated at $160,000.
While Jeanette has travel insurance it will not  cover these costs.
Please help in anyway you can so that we can bring Jeanette back to the USA for treatment.

I have been asked by GoFundMe to add some details about myself as the organizer of this campaign.

My name is Nicolas Wiseman and I live in San Diego, CA. My wife, Barbara and I are dear friends of Jeanette and we decided to launch this fundraiser in order to "Get Jeanette Home" from the South African hospital where she is currently a patient.

The funds will be used to assist in the medical transportation of Jeanette to the USA. She has no weight bearing because of the severity of her injuries and cannot use a regular airline. The funds could also be used to support Jeanette's continuing medical care in Africa.

I am the coordinator of the fund. I have no authority to withdraw funds. Funds will either be withdrawn by Jeanette herself (if she is able) or by her son, Damian Craig.

Please be assured, ALL funds will go to Jeanette.
