Christina Ricci Family Fund
$13,580 of $15,000 goal
Christina suffered a tragic accident while on a cruise with her boyfriend Scott. It was suppose to be a much needed vacation and has turned into Christina fighting for her life.
on sept 11, 2015 Christina fell on the cruise and hit her head. She was airlifted off the boat to a hospital in Miami Florida. Details are few at this time but she has suffered a massive stroke and is fighting for her life in critical condition. Her mom, dad, sister, and brother have rushed to be by her side and are now in Miami. They are staying in a hotel close to the hospital. The rest of her immediate family are leaving in the morning to be by her side for a short amount of time....please pray for their safe arrival as well.
Please continue to pray and send positive thoughts to my beautiful niece and our family. We are praying for you Tina and we want to see your beautiful eyes and smile again.
we are mostly asking for prayers and encouraging words for Tina to recover...however going from NH to Miami is no easy task and we don't want her parents or siblings to have to worry about meals and keeping themselves going so that they can be there for Christina if you have the ability to donate anything for her immediate family's expenses we greatly appreciate it.
we love you Tina please continue to be the strong, beautiful, feisty young woman that you are.

Our beautiful Christina has passed away. I don't think I have wrapped my head around it yet but she was so special and I know she will watch over all of us. She will live in our hearts forever ♡
We are trying to figure out the details but most importantly the extra funds are to help get our Christina home and to give her the services she deserves.
Thank you all for your prayers, love, support, and your donations. The family appreciates them all. When I have further details everyone will know. God bless.
This is not easy. God never said life was for sure. The days we have are not promised. But our prayers are for certain. I look up at the sky and I beg. I hold my head down and cry. The mercy of our loved one is in the hands of faith. I can't tell you how hard this is nor can you feel this pain. I would never wish this on my worst enemy. Please help the family with prayers and donate what you can. 24 is far to young of an age for this. Don't sit there and think of how bad she looks. Think of the last laugh you had with our loved one and pray for many more to come. If you know this lil firecracker she is a solid fighter and the heart of gold. Thank you for the support.
Sending our love and PRAYERS. Love the Lester family.
Thank you for sharing the slide show! It was beautiful, and I felt honored to see a bit of Christina's life, from precious newborn to an inspiring adult. She seems to have radiated such life, such joy at any age! While all friends and family are suffering loss, my heart aches most for her mom, Lisa. Before I met Christina, I had interacted with Lisa several times at NHH (in the HR dept) 2007-2008. She was very kind and patient with me, always quick to help. I didn't meet Christina until 2011, when she joined J Unit working nights. She was a breath of fresh air, and immediately impressed me with her maturity and her congeniality. She was also the most smiley person- all this at 4AM! I am so fortunate to have met her. Thank you Lisa for asking that the slideshow be on the gofundme page. Christina was so photogenic, which is a blessing for the preservation of memories- her spirit just leaps out of the photos! I smiled, I cried, and I imagined her mom's heartache. So grateful to have known this amazing young woman.
I'm so very sorry for the family, this is just awful news ,continuing praying for the family
