￼On 7Feb, my step mom, Linda, was riding on the back of my dad’s motorcycle; a favorite pastime for both of them. Unfortunately, some punks in our quiet neighborhood decided to maliciously tie a ratchet strap from one side of the street across to the other. Neither of my parents saw the strap as they cruised down the neighborhood street and unfortunately Linda was nearly decapitated when she collided with the strap. (My dad, thankfully, was sitting lower than Mom, and was mostly unaffected).
The extent of her injuries is heart breaking, as the strap nearly ripped her jaw off. There is extensive damage to her face, vital arteries, and soft tissue, and dozens of fractures to her face, skull and possibly cervical vertebrae that so far have required several surgeries and will require several more. She is in critical but stable condition in the ICU.
After asking for prayers, no matter what diety you report to, I’m asking for donations to help cover the cost of staggering medical expenses, travel and lodging costs for out of town family members (including travel for myself as I’m stationed away with the military), food and basic necessity costs so that my devastated father and family don’t have to worry about anything during this awful time. Every thing past the immediate cost of her medical bills will go directly towards her post-hospital care (in home care equipment, supplies for wound maintenance etc...). Not a cent will be put towards anything but Linda. Every little bit helps and I promise you that every little bit will be vastly appreciated.
Linda is a vivacious, outgoing, generous, loving, strong willed, stubborn and massive hearted woman who didn’t deserve this disgusting act of inhumanity and sure as hell doesn’t deserve the ramifications of someone else’s shitty life choices. From the absolute bottom of my heart, I’m begging anyone and everyone to please help contribute to this cause. Share this page and encourage others to help, too. Thank you so much in advance and God bless.
