Help Mary with medical & housing

On Sunday September 16th my mom, Mary, was in a 3 car accident and suffered serious injuries. 2 broken ribs, neck fractures, and 3 spinal fractures, 1 of which pressed down on her spine which required 12 hour long surgery to repair. She can not move her legs, but she can feel when she is touched. She will be in advanced care and then physical rehab at the hospital for the next 8-12 weeks. Please anything will help and if you can’t donate please share!!

UPDATE: Mary has been doing better, still having some rough days. Physical therapy has been working with her 3 times a day to hopefully get some sort of movement started in her legs. She still cannot move her legs or toes. PT had her in her wheelchair a couple of times now. She’s been dealing with bad anxiety attacks. She loses her apartment at the end of October and will need a wheelchair accessible home. She will not be able to handle her German Shepherd that lives with her so I will be taking her once I can find a place that will accept her breed. Money is very tight all around and my sister and I are in a really bad place at this time. I want to thank our family and friends and everyone who has donated it means so much. My mom has a long road ahead of her and anything helps. Please keep sharing!
