Rally for Grace McDill

Grace McDill is a vibrant, inquisitive, passionate person, and has a larger than life personality. She is loving, kind, and deeply caring.  Grace saw the good in everyone and wanted to care for and heal all wounded souls who came into her life. This led her to begin a degree studying social work at CCAC.  She was planning to transfer to University of Pittsburgh next year to complete a Bachelor of Social Work.

On Monday July 31st, she started a job as a Direct Support Professional at ACHIEVA, an organization that supports and empowers individuals with disabilities and their families.  She was so excited to start this new chapter in her life.

Tragically she suffered an accident overnight Wednesday, August 2nd, that left her without enough oxygen to support her brain function.  Grace was found unresponsive and taken to Allegheny General Hospital where she was in the ICU for 11 days.  She has been  transferred to a long-term acute care facility.

As doctors monitor her condition, we pray, chant, and ask the universe for her recovery. Grace has already reached a level that we couldn’t imagine at this time last week.  There is still a very long way to go to bring her back to us.

The medical bills are accumulating and are anticipated to be astronomical. We have set up this Go Fund Me to assist the family with medical costs. If you are able to donate, we thank you from our hearts.  If you are unable to donate, please continue to pray for Grace. Continue your positive thoughts and good wishes.
