Kimberly's Recovery

On Monday, November 20th, 2017, our lives came to a standstill when Kimberly was struck by a hit and run driver in Ottawa.  Our healthy, vibrant, funny and loving Kimmy, suffered serious injuries to her brain and fractures to her face.  She was just two weeks away from writing her finals and completing her courses to graduate.

We have truly been touched by all the help, messages, e-mails and calls we continue to receive from around the world.  We are hopeful that her age, good health and prayers from her many concerned family and friends, will see her through this and help her make a full recovery.  We know now that her progress will be very slow and her road to recovery will be a long one.

Many of you have asked how you can help support Kimberly and her parents.  When I first pitched the idea of starting a GoFundMe to Bry and Fi, they both said "we only want people’s prayers".  However, after almost a month at Kimberly's bedside, the gravity of the situation has become more realistic.

If you feel like you would like to help and don't know how, this is a way to make a difference to Kimberly’s short and long-term recovery, rehabilitation and well-being.

Please do not feel obligated to make a donation as your continued prayers, caring and positive thoughts are irreplaceable and greatly appreciated.

Thank you
