Lauren's Recovery Fund

IMPORTANT UPDATE!! We need to purchase a wheelchair van with ramp and a wheelchair accesible home ASAP!! On August 19, 2018, my family's life changed. My 16-year-old daughter, Lauren, was in a terrible car accident. Lauren and her boyfriend were ejected from the vehicle during the accident. Lauren almost didn't make it out of the crash scene alive. The brave firefighter had to perform an emergency tracheotomy, on scene, for her to breathe. She suffered many facial fractures (practically every bone in her face), a severed ear canal, fractured 2 vertebrates which also pinched the spinal cord, fractured ulna, and lost her right eye. We are praying that the repair on her left eye will allow her to have some vision. She still has not had any movement below the waist and has no fine motor skills.  Her boyfriend had to have his left leg amputated and suffered damage to his right leg.  As of now, she has had 14 surgeries with many more to come. She has had multiple blood transfusions and has been battling infection after infection. Her dad and I are divorced and neither one has been able to work as we have been by her side everyday. We will need to pay for living facilities, many therapies, wheelchair, wheelchair accessible car, rehab, ramps, meds, etc. This GoFundMe page is being set up because we don't know how long this process will take. There will be many expenses that I don't know how they will get paid. I'm not usually the asking type, but we need everybody's help. We are also asking for prayers for her and our family. Lauren has gone through many difficulties in her life and this is definitely going to be the hardest. We appreciate any help you are able to give. Thank you and God Bless.
