16 year old Kylie Benson from Valliant Oklahoma needs our prayers. Kylie has survived being ran over by a semi, and got herself out of a burning car and walked over 200 yards before collapsing. Kylie is in critical/stable condition in a Texas hospital with 60% plus 3rd degree burns on her body as well as other injuries. The doctors expect it will be a long road to recovery with a minimum 6 month hospital stay.
Please keep in mind that Kylie has no medical insurance of any kind so any donation will be greatly appreciated. Hospital stays are extremely expensive. Kylie’s mother Alicia Manning, (a lifelong resident of McCurtain County, the daughter of retired Highway Patrol Gordon Manning & current McCurtain County Sheriff Deputy herself) will have to be off work in order to be at the hospital. In addition to Go Fund Me, an account has been set up at First State Bank in Valliant, Oklahoma for donations. Be on the lookout for upcoming fundraisers to benefit Kylie and her Family. #walkitout #prayforkylieB
UPDATE BY ALICIA: Kylie is still in a critical stage. She has 3rd degree burns from the top of her head to her knees. You literally can not place a hand on her body without touching a burn. She has fractured ribs and spine with a vent tube for her collapsed lung. She is on a respirator to help her breathe so she can not talk. She is in a medically induced coma. She can not open her eyes because her face is severely burned. Both of her arms and hands have been deeply burned we are concerned with not only infection but the skin restricting blood flow which would lead to loss of her limbs or digits. We love each and everyone of you we have received hundreds of messages. We want everyone to be a part of her journey as she walks this out. However, because of her injuries we are limiting visitors to reduce the risk of infection. Thank you for your understanding.... She is in a fight for her life! God is with her. #walkitout #faithofamustardseed #PrayForKylieB
