Natick Hit and Run: Help Kimberly and Andy

My cousin Kimberly and her husband Andy were out for their routine evening stroll near downtown Natick on the evening of Tuesday August 18th when a blue pickup truck jumped the curb and ran them over, driving them into a wooden fence. A piece of the wood from  from the fence impaled Kimberly through the chest. In her haste to flee the scene, the driver of the truck backed over Kimberly, crushing both of her legs, and took off at a high rate of speed. They were both med-flighted to nearby trauma centers. At this time it is still unclear as to whether her medical team will be able to save both of her legs.

The last year has been a very special one for Kimberly and Andy. A couple very much in love, they decided to get married, doing so on the Bridge of Flowers in Natick Center. They had also saved enough money together from both their jobs that they were able to purchase a modest home, also in Natick. 

What Kimberly and Andy need now is time to heal without the stress of financial burdens such as unreimbursed medical expenses. And Kimberly's convalescence is going to be extensive, and may include the cost of a prosthetic leg. 

We appreciate the generous outpouring of support everyone has shown so far, and hope to make Kimberly's and Andy's journey back to health and wholeness a smoother one.

Update: the fundraising goal has been increased because Kimberly and Andy's
home will most likely need extensive renovations in order to accommodate a wheelchair.
