Tristyn Wallar's Medical Fund

On January 7th of this year, Tristyn Wallar was involved in an ATV accident while at the deer lease with her father and friends.  She was driving an ATV with 2 of her friends when the ATV was struck from behind by a truck traveling over 75mph.  Tristyn was partially ejected  from atv on impact and drug over 250 feet before the ATV and vehicle finally came to rest.  Her right leg was pinned in the ATV and suffered a compound fracture, her left  leg was pinned beneath the back wheel of the ATV.   Both of her legs suffered broken bones and she suffered a significant head injury and grade 4 concussion.  She was extracted from the ATV and care-flighted from Nocona General Hospital to Parkland where she spent 10 days.  Parkland Hospital performed emergency surgery on her legs and began treating her head trauma. Prior to being released from the hospital, she had to relearn how to walk on her broken legs and function with the effects of the concussion and head injury.   
 
Since being release from the hospital, Tristyn has had to endure weekly rehabilitation appointments for physical, cognitive, and speech therapy, along with counseling.  The family had insurance, but were notified by Humana that their policy would end on June 30th, because Humana was withdrawing from the Texas independent market.  This left the family to find alternative insurance and get hit with another large medical deductible  and increased premiums for her ongoing medical treatments this year. The driver of the truck's insurance was inadequate and will not cover the cost of her medical expenses or ongoing treatments. Tristyn is being treated at Children’s Hospital for her rehabilitation and they are requesting 4-6 more months of treatment. The family is in the process of securing other insurance coverage to help cover the cost of these services and her ongoing medical expenses.  These funds are being collected to help assist with the families deductibles and ongoing medical expenses.
