While traveling in Vietnam, Jordan Rogers was involved in a critical motorscooter crash. In route to her next destination, there was a low hanging barrier at the start of an oncoming bridge that she collided head first into.
The crash has so far resulted in a cracked skull with air bubbles in her brain, fractured face, fractured ribs, blood infection and possible permanent loss of vision in her left eye.
She is currently at Da Nang General Hospital in Da Nang, Vietnam. She has little to no access to the medical technologies needed to accurately diagnose and treat the possibly life threatening injuries she's facing.
The medical facilities in Vietnam barely have the means to keep her in minimal pain. Right now, they are recommending she be medically transported to Bangkok, Thailand with a Neurosurgeon escort to begin surgery on her eye and figure out next steps for the injuries suffered to her head and brain.
Unfortunately, she is without travelers insurance, so all expenses will be out of pocket. According to the U.S. Embassy, medical transportation with an escort from a Neurosurgeon to Thailand alone is estimated to cost between $25-30,000.
It is also crucial that she gets back home to the United States where she can get proper tests and treatment.
This is an urgent matter due to the head injuries shes suffering. Any and everything helps to chip away at these expenses. All money raised will go directly to these medical and travel costs.
Update: "made it back to the states but am now in the ICU due to other complications that were unknown. Multiple skull fractures, bleeding in the brain, collapsed lung, 3 broken ribs, etc. they will be sending some surgeons in the morning to possible look at my brain/try and fix my vision. I am sooo tired of being in the hospital and not sure how much I'll have my phone in the ICU but I'll try and keep y'all updated. Thank you everyone!"
