On that fateful night of January 6th, Tammy was hit head-on by a SUV that swerved into oncoming traffic; regretfully the driver of the SUV died at the scene. It took rescue workers over 40 minutes to get Tammy out of the wreckage, during which time she was without oxygen. Rushed to the hospital, Tammy was resuscitated, and thankfully is still with us today. She suffered two broken legs, a crushed ankle, a broken arm, a broken jaw and had swelling and bleeding of the brain. Through multiple surgeries, doctors have been able to stabilize Tammy, but the road to recovery will be long.
As anyone might imagine, Tammy's family is devastated and trying their best to help Tammy learn a new way of life. The doctors are uncertain of a timeline for her recovery and many more surgeries are in her future. Unable to return to work, her family is at a loss on how to pay for the therapy that Tammy needs and how to maintain the household bills.
Tammy has always been a planner and regardless of any of her struggles she always found a way to remain self sufficient—never asking for help. As she so selflessly helped countless children, adults, and elderly it is time that we, as Tammy would, help as we can. Tammy still would never ask for help, but we know that she needs it. Any donation, large or small will go towards Tammy's rehabilitation costs—as they are anticipated to shoot through the roof.
Thank you so much for all your care and concern, it has allowed Tammy to keep a smile on her face despite this unthinkable tragedy.
