Help Hollie get better!!!

$6,130 of $10,000 goal

Raised by 101 people in 14 months
To know Hollie is to love her. She will give you the clothes off her back if it would help her friends. Now its our turn to show her how much we love and support her. If you don’t know me, my name is Jessica Smith, one of her closest friends in Buffalo NY.

For those who don't know, Hollie was found unresponsive on Friday (10/13) afternoon in her house. She has been on a ventilator since and in a deep sleep. The cause of this is still a mystery to the amazing health professionals at Buffalo General.

The absolutely amazing news is that on Monday, October 16th, Hollie is able to open her eyes for a few seconds at a time and nod yes or no to questions. She is still not out of the woods, but she is working her way out.

Due to starting a new job in just the past 6 months, Hollie will not have any sick time and is going to have massive medical bills. On top of this, there was some damage to the house in order for emergency medical service to get to her.

This money will be going to pay quite a few things. Window replacement, current bills that need to be paid while she is in coma, her health insurance premiums, medical bills that will start
Coming in, and basic money to live on until she can return to work. I will be paying anything she needs paid until she wakes up. I know Hollie would never in a million years ask for help. I along with her best friend Rose are more than happy to do so for her (and withstand her wrath when she wakes up). Please help in any way you can, the way you know Hollie would help you. Thank you.

Hi everyone! For privacy reasons, I won’t be posting anymore updates on GoFundMe page. I will however update Facebook.

Update for everyone: today was a good news, bad news day.

The good news is that they were able to lower her oxygen requirement on ventilator from 100% to 50%. It will be so great if we can get her off the ventilator!

The bad news is that due to some neurological meds they initially had to give her, her kidneys have started to boycott. She most likely will be started on dialysis by tomorrow. If her other issues resolve themselves, the good news is that because she’s been generally healthy and still young, the risk of permanent kidney damage is very low.

She is still heavily sedated and remains critical. So keep those prayers coming and don’t forget to share this page!!! God Bless. ❤️

Today is not a good day. I don't have much information, but please continue to pray.

Quick update for everyone: Monday Hollie was doing great recognizing voices and nodding yes or no. The doctors tried removing the breathing tube yesterday and unfortunately that did not go very well. They were forced to put the tube back in and sedate her. They told me today they will try again in a few days.

Many people are asking if they can visit. At this time with her being in ICU and on machines and unconscious, I feel she wouldn't want many people seeing her like this except close friends. Once she is awake (and she will wake up!!) she will need all the visitors and support she can get. Her birthday is also this Sunday so I'm really hoping she will be coherent enough to celebrate. She loves you all, and I'm telling her everyday how many people are praying for her.
