Please help a mother struck by car

On Feb 1, 2018 at around 3pm my sister Kelly was struck by a vehicle.  Kelly and her two youngest sons had been dropped off by her husband so they could catch a bus. On their way over to the bus stop they encountered a man who seemed to be having a medical emergency so Kelly called 911 to try to get the man help. The man started driving his truck and was coming right towards Kelly and her two sons. One of her sons was able to get out of the way. Thankfully Kelly's motherly instincts allowed her to react in time  to throw her youngest son out of the way. Unfortunately in doing so, Kelly was unable to get herself to safety and she was struck by the truck. She sacrificed herself to ensure the safety of her child. in doing so she suffered some cuts on her head that required stitches, major bruising all over both her legs and her left arm and a major hematoma on her leg. The hematoma is causing her a lot of pain and requiring her to go to the hospital every day for IV antibiotics. Her younger son suffered a bump on his head  

Kelly does a lot for her family whether its helping at the school PAC, walking the kids to school, taking the kids to soccer practice, or football practice or basketball practice. She can barely walk right now and is unable to fully care for her family. Her husband has been at her side helping with her care, taking her to the hospital every day for IV antibiotics, taking care of the kids and all of the housework. Kelly also helps him at work from time to time and is unable to do so now.

I would like to raise this money for them so they can pay their expenses during these hard times.
