Life is but a dream ...

Laura McNulty, extraordinary athlete, cyclist, runner, swimmer, horsewoman, personal trainer, photographer, wife, mother, friend, … our Laura … was hit by a car while bicycling Saturday afternoon February 8, 2020 in Arcata, California. She remains in ICU at St Joseph Hospital in Eureka, CA with a spinal injury as well as facial lacerations.

It will be necessary for Laura to get to a spinal cord injury care and rehab institution to receive the best diagnosis and treatment for this most critical injury.

She is waiting for conformation of admittance to the Rehabilitation Center at Santa Clara Valley Medical Center. It is a nationally-recognized specialty hospital that provides comprehensive treatment of brain injury, spinal cord injury, stroke, and other disabling neurological conditions. Based in San Jose, California, Santa Clara Valley Medical Center is one of just 16 facilities designated a Model System for spinal cord injury care. Its commitment to new research, excellent care, and helping patients through every step of the recovery journey has earned it a reputation as one of America's best spinal cord injury recovery centers.  

This is where Laura needs to be - to get the best chance for recovery from this terrible accident!

For those of us who know Laura personally, we know she is  extraordinarily talented, deeply insightful, thoughtful, and such an inspiration to us all. She is loved by animals and humans alike. But her animals cannot pay her bills, she needs us to help her and her family with that!

Please donate what you can for Laura's expenses for this difficult rehab she is now facing!
