January 24th UPDATE CLICK HERE FOR MOST RECENT update on Ashley's condition.
On Christmas Eve our good friend Ashley Southard was struck by a truck as she walked near her home. While Ashley lay on Indiantown Road, the driver of the stolen truck fled on foot and has yet to be apprehended. Ashley was Tramahawked to St Mary’s Hospital in West Palm Beach.
Ashley’s medical condition is very serious. As of Christmas afternoon we know she has 9 broken ribs, a punctured lung, broken femur, broken knee, and a shattered pelvis. Her spleen and one kidney were so badly damaged they had to be removed. The doctors are currently trying to stabilize her for a major surgery this Saturday. We are very grateful for the skilled doctors and nurses at St Mary’s!
Ashley is looking at months in the hospital, multiple surgeries, followed by months of intensive rehabilitation.
For those of you who don’t know Ashley, she’s a very genuine, caring person and a wonderful friend to many people. She attended Jupiter High School and works at Shoe Carnival in Jupiter.
Ashley has a rough road ahead of her. Until now Ashley supported herself. Please help us help Ashley maintain her home and other expenses while she recovers in 2015 by donating whatever amount you can.
