While attending the Realtor’s Triple Play Conference in Atlantic City with her sister this week, Martha Marino, a REMAX agent from Hornell was struck by a van while waiting at a cross walk.  The driver of the van, was charged- driving under the influence of drugs, jumped the curb, striking Martha and throwing her in the air before hitting a concrete wall. 

Upon arrival to the trauma center, she had three brain bleeds,  two brain contusions, a contusion on her liver, a fractured C5 and compound fractures to her elbow, femur and patella. She also had multiple facial fractures as well as a large gash over her left eye.

She is currently heavily sedated and on a respirator.  The neurological team has given her clearance to begin the orthopedic surgical process. She has been waiting for an OR to get her femur fixed today(Friday 12/7). The elbow surgery will occur sometime next week. 

Her family has flown in from around the country and are all staying in hotels to remain close by. The accident occurred 7 hours from her home in Hornell New York.

As you know, Realtors are self employed and Martha makes a living by walking, talking, smiling, and making dreams come true...... “Movin’ with Martha.”

Please help us ease the burden that can compound when a loved one needs extensive medical care!   Thank you for reading Martha's story

Team Martha- Here is the latest from the girls at the hospital......
MOMMA UPDATE: Here is an update from the post below regarding Martha’s progress over the last couple days. On Friday evening she had her femur surgery and last night they did the elbow reconstruction. She is breathing on her own and is no longer requiring the respirator. She has some symptoms of frontal lobe brain injury. However, all the docs keep telling us her progression is remarkable considering her condition upon arrival.
We are expecting her to graduate out of ICU by tomorrow. We are still taking this day-by-day but have started working on arrangements to have her transported closer to home.
We are beyond grateful for the outpouring of love, concern and support from all texts, prayers, good vibes, comments and that incredible “Go Fund Me” account. My dad (Mike Marino), sister and I haven’t left her side....we’ve been reading her all the kind words.
Don’t stop now people!!! Prayers and positivity still needed!

So YOUR PRAYERS are being answered....THANK YOU.

Your continued support and thought are AMAZING.... stay tuned for more as we hear. - Andy.
