Judy B. Goode: Broken Leg Fund

On Friday, June 30th, our beloved Judy fell off her ladder around 7:30/8am. She was trimming some bushes in the backyard with her sister Lee. She over extended her arm with the electric trimmer to reach some branches that were further away and the ladder gave out from under her. She was transported via ambulance to Bayfront.

On Friday, June 30th, same day as the accident, Judy had an external fixator screwed into her right leg. Which are external metal bars and braces screwed into her bones to demobilize and put her leg back together. This is a temporary fix and she will be immobile for up to 8+ weeks. She fractured the tibia on the top where it meets the underside of the knee. 

As of Monday, July 3rd, Judy’s doctors have assessed her healing progress and determined that the swelling has not gone down enough to have the permanent surgery. Which means, Judy will be stuck in the hospital for at least another week to let the swelling go down. They fear that sending her home will be too risky. 

We all know that Judy cleans houses for a living. Which means no work, no pay. With being off her feet for at least 8 weeks or longer, she will financially fall very behind, quickly. She does not have an emergency fund and because she is self-employed, she cannot apply for disability. This is a super emotional and difficult time for Judy. People have asked how they can help, and here is our chance. Even donating $5 or $10 will make a difference. Judy is a great person who is in dire need of her friends. She appreciates all of you and those who have already reached out in support.
