Fight For Abbie

On Sunday 14th July, Abbie Sweeper was involved in a horrific horse accident and is currently in the Lady Cilento ICU in an induced coma. When she wakes, she will be fighting a big battle to fully recover. Abbie and her parents, Amanda and Russell, are very well known and heavily involved in riding and showing horses - it is their passion and life - and now, unfortunately, they find themselves in an unimaginably heartbreaking situation.  They are facing weeks and weeks in hospital and many months (perhaps years) of rehabilitation in the future for 10 year old Abbie. They will be faced with the initial ongoing costs of accommodation, fuel for travelling to the hospital, food and of course ongoing medical costs to help Abbie recover fully.  Claire and Tiffany are family friends of Abbie's parents, having met 16 years ago when we were all teaching together in Laidley. We all live West of Brisbane, in Ipswich, The Lockyer Valley and Toowoomba. Donations raised via this Go Fund Me campaign will be directly deposited into Abigail's bank account to assist with the purchase of medical equipment for when she returns home from the PICU. This includes, but is not limited to: medical equipment such as breathing apparatus, wheelchair, toilet and shower chairs, home nurses, renovations to the home to accommodate wheelchair access, etc. We are asking for any donation you can give - every little bit helps - to help ease some of the burden for Abbie and her parents during this difficult time.  Thank you in advance, Abbie's Angels!
