As we are get ready for a wonderful Easter weekend unfortunately due to a horse riding accident my sister Brittaney Adams will be stuck in bed with pins, metal, and a cast unable to move or afford a Easter this year. She is a mother of 3 children, Jaxson is under 1 year, Emma is under 2 years, and Kya 10. As you can imagine she's got her hands full even in perfect health. There are no baby sitters, nannies, or maids to help take the load off and hiring one isn't an option as we know how expensive it can be. Brittaney is all of the above and the main person who takes care of the children and household while her husband works. Brittaney picks up 2-3 shifts bartending a week when her husband is off to make ends meet.
She wanted to share some quality time with her daughter considering the two new additions in the house take up most of her time. She stumbled on some super cheap horseback riding lessons to do with her daughter. On April 14th what most people are scared of with horses happened to Brittaney-she had a major fall. Brittaney was on the horse who was walking on pavement with the trainer next to her. During this time something spooked the horse and she took off full speed causing Brittaney to lose grip of the reigns and the stirrups snapped taking away her balance. She managed to hang onto the horses mane for a quarter of a mile before falling off and slamming onto the pavement. When she landed she shattered her ankle and broke her fibula which broke through her skin. She was transported by ambulance to the nearest hospital where she was put into a cast for support to get her prepped for surgery which was April 17th.
The downfall of all of this she doesn't have insurance or any sort of savings. She lives a very happy life but a modest life. Unfortunately we all don't prepare for these sort of things. The reality is she isn't able to afford insurance for herself. She is the most incredible mother and wife that we can all learn from. She's got the biggest heart and softest soul. The 2-3 days a week she works was to pay for her children insurance while her and her husband go without. Thats the kind of world we live in-where we all can't afford medical.
SO I COME TO YOU ASKING FOR HELP!!!
Brittaney will need three different surgeries. The surgeries are expected to cost around $80,000 together plus months of physical therapy at $200 a visit. This also doesn't include the post Dr. checkups and visits after. I will keep you up to date on the billing with photos as proof. She is expected to be out of commission (work and motherhood) for 10 months to a year!! She has filled for emergency medicaid and is awaiting pending. If she is approved she will still have to pay $20,000 out of pocket. IF or WHEN she gets approved I will adjust the amount we are seeking. Anything helps! Even if its only $10!!! As you can imagine humbling yourself to ask for help is incredibly hard. Hopefully you never have to be put in the position to have to ask for help but in the event that you I pray others have an open heart for you as well :)
Thank you all so much in advance. If you can't help would you please be so kind to SHARE!!!
