Laura's Recovery The Saga Continues

Laura Rogoski for those of you who don't know her, she has had quite the past year.

Background story:
On July 12 of 2016 she broke her foot skateboarding and was misdiagnosed for 4  months.  Once she had her surgery after being on crutches and a world of pain for 8 months after the initial break, she was non weight bearing and on crutches again until this past July, an entire year later!

In the past 2 months she has finally been getting back to normal life after not being able to walk or work for more than 7 months out of the past year. She was so excited to have her final release X ray scheduled Nov 1st.

BUT THEN...

On October 25 while riding her motorcycle, Laura was T-Boned by a distracted driver.  Overall, She was very lucky.  She had a full face helmet and was wearing multiple layers of leather that protected her upper half, but her lower body did not fare so well.

Her right femur was shattered and her left hip was dislocated with multiple small socket fractures.  

She is getting surgery ASAP but will be in a wheelchair and need constant care.  As she lives alone she will need help not only mentally and physically but also financially.  

Not only is Laura one of the toughest most hardworking people I know, she is by far the most independent person I know. She worked hard all winter working two jobs to pay for her last surgery and recovery of her foot, along with keeping up on normal bills such as insurance and student loans with out asking for help from anybody.

This money will be going to help with:
Rent
Student/Car Loans
Utilities
Bills
Medical costs
Physical therapy
Food
Loss of work/income

If you know Laura at all, you know she spends all of her spare time either skateboarding, snowboarding or rock climbing.  Unfortunately, she will be missing this upcoming season that she was so looking forward to, as she had to put last season on the back burner because of her foot.  Laura has enough to worry about and to work past, and being able to pay for her life shouldn't be her main concern.

Lets help get Laura back on her feet, literally!!!!
