Susan-Hit and Run victim

On 8/21/2019 at approximately 6:38am while walking up a quiet residential street on her way to work my wife Susan was hit from behind by a car and left for dead in a ditch.  The car that hit her sped away. 

She lay there dying for about 30 minutes. 

Fortunately, a passerby saw her and alerted the authorities (Collier County Florida case #19-275201) and they were able to get her to the hospital.   Her injuries are extensive:  Broken femur,  fractured back and neck, fractured ribs, bruised and bleeding liver and spleen and a very  bruised and broken tail bone.

Luckily, we have insurance but its not the greatest.  With the extent of her injuries along with at least 10 days in the hospital ( actually turned out to be 15...) and extensive rehabilitation we are looking at $10,000.00 out of pocket at the very least.

Susan works at Walmart  #1957 and is known as the happiest woman on earth!   In addition, she is from the Philippines and sends her money home where she is the biggest bread winner in the family and a devote Catholic.

Any help given would be greatly appreciated

Thank you !
