I can use a little help!

Im not usually one to ask for help financially because one way or another I can always make ends meet. But not this time; this situation is a bit serious. I'm reaching out to family and friends to help me. I have no insurance so I'm sure what I'm asking will barely touch the amount I need but it's a good start.

I was mountain biking this last Saturday and I crashed & went over my handle bars. It happened so fast I wasn't able to brace myself with my hands so my head and chest took the impact causing me to "scorpion" bending my body backwards breaking my back. This caused my T-7 vertabrae to fracture all the way thru from front to back (like if you were to stack two peices of bread together). And my T5 vertabrae is a compound fracture w multiple breaks. I'm required to wear a brace for 3 months. After the 3 months I will be checked to see if I need surgery. Meanwhile I'm asking for help to cover living expenses like Rent, bills, food, and medication I will need during this time. Whatever you can do cause every little bit helps.

Please "like" and "share"

Thank you,
Teresa Lynn
