As she approached the stop sign at the intersection of county roads in rural Douglas County, 13-year-old Mikal didn't even see the Ford pickup truck coming. That beautiful Sunday morning turned into a very dark day. The results of that day will impact Mikal Bond and her family for the rest of her life. Severe. Traumatic. Brain. Injury.
The July 10, 2011 accident left Mikal, a Maple Hill, Kansas teenager, gravely injured and clinging to life. Among her injuries Mikal suffered broken collar bones, three broken ribs and a lacerated spleen- but the worst by far was a traumatic brain injury. She spent the first two months after the accident in a coma while enduring multiple major surgeries. Over a year later and with her family's love and care, Mikal is learning to walk again and do many of the simple tasks of everyday life.
The journey to Mikal's full recovery has been long and expensive: and it's nowhere near over yet. Any donation amount will greatly help Mikal's family as they continue her recovery.
