Hope for Melinda the Enforcer

My name is Kevin Meier and my wife, Cathy Meier is Melinda's sister. I started this fund to help her: Our dear family member and friend to so many, Melinda Penner—known affectionately by thousands as “The Enforcer“ at Stand to Reason (the apologetics ministry she founded 25 yrs ago with dear friend Greg Koukl)—suffered a terrible accident on December 2. She fell from a ladder, hit the concrete pavement with the back of her head, and suffered a severe and traumatic brain injury (TBI) that left her unconscious for weeks. A portion of her skull was removed to save her life.  Melinda is in a medically stable situation now—though on a ventilator—but is largely immobile, completely incommunicado, and basically unresponsive at the moment. She needs financial help for physical therapy and to underwrite her costs at the subacute healthcare facility now providing the personal assistance needed for the long recovery period ahead of her. How much she is able to improve depends largely on the kind of rehabilitating treatment she is able to receive, medical help that her insurance, unfortunately, does not cover.  There is no way to know how much she will improve, but it’s unlikely she will progress without treatment that her present policies do not provide for. Your generous gifts will make it possible for Melinda to receive the loving, professional care she needs to give her the best chances for improvement. Her family and friends thank you for your prayers and support.
Moneys will be transferred into Cathy's account and into a trust set up just for Melinda.
