Krystal's Burn Recovery

On March 21st, Krystal was severely burned in a kitchen accident. She was making yogurt and went to move a gallon of boiling milk to the sink when the pot slipped from her hands and spilled down her front. She sustained significant burns to her hand, stomach, thighs and feet. Robby rushed Krystal to the hospital in Ontario, where it was determined that Krystal would need to be Life Flighted to Utah for treatment. She remains in the Burn Unit with Robby by her side, but as anyone who has experienced even a small burn can imagine, she’s in a significant amount of pain. She has a long road to recovery ahead of her, including painful wound care and physical therapy, but feels encouraged and uplifted by the kindness and prayers from their loved ones.

Krystal and Robby have been so incredibly touched by the outpouring of love and support from their family, neighbors, church members and CrossFit community. People have been helping at the dairy with Robby away. People have set up Meal Trains for when Krystal returns home. There have been countless offers to help with their three kids,  and people have even been bringing meals to Robby's parents as they juggle the dairy operations without him. Krystal and Robby are moved to tears daily by the acts of kindness shown to them and their family.

I asked Krystal and Robby if it was okay for me to create a place for people to show their financial support if they feel compelled to do so. Talking about finances makes most people uncomfortable, but the cost of Life Flight and an extended hospital stay are real and daunting. I’ve seen the outpouring of love and support for Krystal on Facebook, and I know that if each of us contributed even $10-20, it could add up to a significant amount for Krystal and Robby to use towards medical bills and recovery.  Sharing this campaign on Facebook is also a FREE way to help and show support. Thanks for showing your love for this incredible family.
