Help Our Sunshine ☀️

We are writing this on behalf of one of our long-time friends, Marta Ivezaj. On January 5th 2018 Marta was involved in a horrific motor vehicle accident. First Responders fought to keep her alive, once at the hospital it was determined she had suffered from a traumatic brain injury and needed to undergo emergency brain surgery and numerous procedures to keep her alive. Marta was in the ICU for over two weeks and is currently still in the hospital under the care of the trauma team and has one more surgery left.

A little about Marta
Marta is intelligent with so many aspirations and dreams. She has never been one to let obstacles stop her from achieving these dreams. Anyone who knows Marta knows how BIG her heart is, along with the amazing kindness she possesses. She ALWAYS put others needs before her own and her immense personality makes anyone she's just met feel like they've known her for years.

Our Goal
It is still unsure when Marta will be leaving the hospital but once she does the road to recovery will be extremely long taking months if not years and will involve costly Rehabilitation and Outpatient Therapy. In order to give Marta a better shot at a full recovery, her family is looking into one of the best rehabilitation centers in Michigan that specializes in traumatic brain injuries. As one can imagine, Marta's neurosurgery, ICU/hospital stay, and Rehabilitation cost will be astronomical. Our goal is to help alleviate some of these costs for Marta and her family so she can focus on getting better. Marta's kindness has reached thousands in this world for over 21 years, now let's all come together and give some of that kindness back.

Our goal is to help give Marta another chance to be our ray of sunshine again!☀️

Thank you all in advance and God bless you

Samantha & Casey
