On December 31st, 2017 my friend Karen had a fainting spell, which is not uncommon for her. However, this time, Karen fractured her neck and experienced spinal contusions. She was unable to move her arms ,legs, and fingers when she arrived at the hospital. Doctors were questioning if she will ever have mobility again.
God started working in Karen's life, as she started regaining feeling in her arms and legs with intensive rehabilitation over the next few days. She stayed in Crittenton Hospital for 2 weeks until her insurance would not allow her to stay any longer. Even though doctors said that she needed more time in rehabilitation, she had to return home. This required her to make some changes in her house to make it livable for her while she recovers.
Karen is a single mother of two beautiful children and a teacher at a charter school in Pontiac. She has been off of work for several weeks and has not been cleared to return. Unfortunately, her school does not offer disability benefits. She has a long road of recovery in front of her, but even through all of this, she has shown how deserving she is of receiving help with her children, mortgage, and medical bills.
When I asked her how I could help, she sent a Go Fund Me that was for a friend of hers that is also a single mother in need of a car. She was mostly concerned about the welfare of another person, even though she genuinely could use help herself. She is not one to ask for help, but God told me this how. Prayers and donations for Karen are appreciated. Thank you!
