Saving Sonia

I had a roll over accident on Thanksgiving evening off Hwy 2 Angeles Crest Highway. I am greatful to be alive. My car plummeted 600 feet or so down the mountain when I  swerved to try and avoid a coyote on the road which I ended up hitting. When I  went into on coming traffic, scared I over corrected and went off the road. No one saw me go off the road. I spent the night in my car with extensive lacerations to my left arm and injuries to my back and neck. My air bag failed to deploy so my upper body took hard hits and is badly bruised, thankfully no broken bones. Longest night of my life. When the sun came up I thought I was going to lose my arm and knew I had to try and get out of the car to save my arm. I was able to look behind me and saw there was a ranch which turned out to be a wolf sanctuary. When my car finally came to a halt I heard wolves howling and was terrified all night with their howling.  In the morning when I saw the ranch I screamed for help and the wolves howled back. I knew someone had to care for those wolves so I continued to scream for help, but no one was there. I started to try and move myself in the car to try and get out to get help. With will power and condition of my arm I made it out and somehow walked about 1/4 mile down the hill through rough terrain to this ranch, but no one was there.  I saw a road and started walking finally a staff member who was just coming to work at the sanctuary found me and called the ambulance and I was air lifted to a trauma center.  Now I will be out of work for a few months and medical and auto bills mounting since it was very difficult to recover my car which is totaled with only liability insurance. I am asking for your help.  Anything you can provide to help get me back on track would be greatly appreciated.  Thank you to everyone who helped me make it out of that mountain alive. Thank you for taking the time to read this. Appreciate every moment you have as we never know what is around any corner in life. My angles were definitely working their magic that night. So thankfull and forever greatful.
