Krista's Medical Fund

On May 17th Krista Messier was found passed out on her apartment floor by our Mother. She was quickly rushed to the hospital and was treated immediately for Bacterial Menegitis.  The infection had rapidly become septic and attacked her entire body and brain.  She was put on life support.
Scans of her brain showed swelling so bad she was airlifted to Hamilton General where she quickly had a shunt inserted to reduce the swelling. 
The following day Krista was quickly taken to the OR to have part of her skull removed and her first vertebra to further reduce the swelling by giving her brain more room.
Krista is currently confined to her bed, unable to breath on her own or move anything below her shoulders.  Each day brings something new, from ulcers to blood clots to fluid in her lungs. 
From being told that we should say our goodbyes now, to encouraging her to take one more breath without the help of a machine these past 5 weeks have been hard on all of us, but mostly Krista.  
The recovery is going to take months, maybe even years. This goFund me page is to help our family with the expenses that have popped up and to help Krista get back on her feet once she beats this!  



The following is a video about Sepsis and how quickly it can become fatal.
