Help support dana's recovery

On the 5th of September,  my sister dana and her 8 year old daughter were ran over by a car while walking on the sidewalk in Tacoma.  My sister saw the car coming towards them and made a life changing decision, she pushed her daughter Adi as far away from the out of control car as she could. Thust putting herself in front of the vehicle. She is in the critical care unit at Tacoma General with a punctured lung, broken collarbone/clavicle nose both hips, ribs 2 through 7 . A broken tailbone, and 3 complex breaks in her pelvis she had surgery this last week and had rods and screws put  into her pelvis to hold her together. She'll be in the hospital for no less than 12 weeks and then she'll have to go to Medical Care Facility for physical rehabilitation. She is non-weight bearing on her hips and pelvis for 12 weeks meaning that she's can't get out of the bed and move. Her entire right side is broken. He eight-year-old daughter Adi whom my sister  pushed when she saw the car coming out of the way was thankfully spared any grave injuries and was released from the hospital to my family the same day as the accident with only scrapes and  bruises and she is severely traumatized by the event. 

    Dana is a single mother of 3 girls. Ages 5, 8, and 14. They live in Seattle and shes always worked hard and supported them. She can't do that now and is afraid of losing her home and the life that she's work hard to achieve. Help to make sure that she has a home to go to when she gets done with all that's  ahead of her. She's unable to walk or care for herself. The driver of the car was arrested for vehicular assault and was taken 4 drug testing which came back positive and he was then charged with driving while under the influence. 

    I stay with her in the hospital at night it's truly the most heartbreaking thing I've ever experienced /witnessed in my life to where it makes it hard to be there. It's hard to see  your brave big sister completely helpless and in so much pain she's so broken. To me she's a hero she saved her little girl and I think she's amazing.32861684_1537441997478228_r.jpeg
