Sazia's Road to Recovery

My best friend, Sazia Coleman, is a hardworking, ambitious 20-year-old mother and veteran. Many who know her can say that she is extremely outgoing, caring and one of the funniest people they have ever met. She will stop and talk to just about anyone who crosses her path, and she will never hesitate to help someone in need. Whenever she walks into a room, you can bet that joy and laughter will fill the room.

Recently, on February 4th, Sazia got into an awful car accident, leaving her car totaled. As for her, she suffered from a broken jaw, a broken knee, many torn tendons and ligaments in her leg, and has several broken and missing teeth.



When brought into the hospital on the night of the accident, Sazia received immediate knee surgery, as it was reportedly bent backwards when she was found on the scene. After the surgery, Sazia had been in a coma for three days and was connected to a ventilator which kept her breathing. The fourth day, she had woken up, but did not have any recollection of the accident. She also could not speak with words, so she wrote on a notebook as a form of communication. The first thing Sazia asked was if her son was in the car with her when she got into the accident, which thankfully he was not.


Since, Sazia was taken off the ventilator and is now breathing on her own. Her memory is still in and out, as she may remember things and people, but then the next moment she forgets. In the time span of just a week, she has undergone another knee surgery and face reconstruction surgery, and has more surgeries to come.

Due to the seriousness of her injuries, Sazia will be in rehabilitation for a long time coming and will not able to work for an even longer time. Unable to work and earn income, she is incapable of paying any bills, and unfortunately, her landlord will not be terminating her lease.

Through all of this, Sazia has been in such good spirit; expressing her great sense of humor since waking up after the accident, smiling and laughing everyday, and showing an extreme amount of gratitude to everyone who has been there for her. She is very optimistic on having a fast recovery and getting back on her feet soon. So, with your help we’re hoping to get Sazia a new set of teeth to give her her bright smile back and contribute to paying her house bills that she cannot manage right now. Thank you for taking the time to read Sazia’s story. She has inspired everyone around her, and we hope her story can do the same for you. Any donation is truly appreciated! God bless you all!
