Support for Vivian Hammond

Vivian Hammond is a caring and loving woman who loves her family and her job. Vivian is a mail carrier for Matthews, NC Post Office and is currently out of work due to an accident that happened on Tuesday, December 8, 2020. Vivian was delivering her mail in a subdivision, Kerry Greens, when she suddenly lost consciousness and fell into the mailboxes and then to the ground. Luckily there was a resident nearby who was able to call emergency services as Vivian did not regain consciousness until the ambulance arrived. During the fall she hit her face and mouth, causing minor lacerations and bruising as well as damage to her mouth and teeth. Vivian was taken by ambulance directly to a nearby hospital where she underwent many tests as well as a CT scan to attempt to figure out what caused her to suddenly pass out. All tests came back normal but unfortunately Vivian cannot return to work until she has been cleared by a cardiologist.

She had her first appointment with the cardiologist on Tuesday, December 22, 2020. The cardiologist wants to run a number of tests before clearing her to return to work. Unfortunately these tests will not be done until after the holidays at the beginning of January. Vivian also had a consultation with an oral surgeon the day following the accident and had to have some teeth removed due to a bone in her mouth that holds her teeth in place breaking during the fall. She is also seeing a dentist to receive dentures and must pay out of pocket for that and then file with insurance to see what they will cover. She will have to meet all deductibles out of pocket prior to insurance covering and then there may still be out of pocket expenses.

If you are able to help, the money donated will go towards Vivian’s medical expenses not covered by insurance. This GoFundMe page will help in relieving some stress from climbing medical expenses while Vivian is currently out of work and not sure when she will be able to return to work. If you are able to donate, we would be extremely grateful. Please continue to pray for Vivian that she remains healthy and as she continues with the needed next steps/tests in order to be able to get back to work and seeing her customers who she cares for and adores as her own family!

The money raised in this campaign is to go exclusively and directly into an account for Vivian Hammond.
