Rally for Rachel Luziani -

Donation protected
Hi! My name is Mary Jo Davis and I along with many family and friends are establishing this Go Fund Me account for Rachel Luziani. Rachel is the daughter of Dawn and Mary Luziani. We hope that with this fundraiser, ywe can help offset some of the many medical, household, and living expenses.
Rachel Luziani was a Jordan -Elbridge Class of 2022 graduate and a current student at the Niagara Falls Culinary Institute. She had just one semester left to earn her degree. At this time, we are uncertain whether she will be able to return to school in the foreseeable future.
Rachel was home on break from college when on Saturday, December 23rd at approximately 9:30 pm, she was in a horrible car accident. She was driving home from last minute Christmas errands and just a ½ mile from her home, she was t-boned by a vehicle crossing into her lane. The driver of the vehicle was charged with driving while intoxicated. Rachel was trapped inside her vehicle, and it took medical personnel, including a trauma surgeon, almost an hour to remove her from her vehicle. They then transported Rachel to University Hospital where she was treated for her injuries that included a break at the C-1 (she is in a neck brace for 6-8 weeks), several fractures and compound fractures in her left arm, broken rib, a collapsed lung, a broken pelvis, and a broken femur. Rachel was intubated, had a chest tube put in, and lost her pulse and heartbeat. Many thanks to the medical team for bringing her back. Rachel was put in ICU where she stayed until she was awake, off the breathing tube, and stable from all her surgeries–a total of 8. One of which caused embolisms to go her brain resulting in several mini strokes. She also received 110 units of blood.
Rachel has a long road to recovery, though she is pretty bionic now with all the metal in her body holding everything together. She is unable to put any weight on her legs for 3 to 4 months. She is unable to come home until she can transfer herself from the bed to a wheelchair and vice versa. In fact, many things need to be changed at their home for Rachel to be able to come home: The home will need a ramp, a handicap bathroom, and her bedroom moved downstairs with a hospital bed. And the list goes on. We know with your help these needs can be met.
