My sister, and your family member or friend, Katie Malone was in a tragic parasailing accident while on vacation in Puerto Vallarta. The parasailing ride is supposed to be 10 minutes, she was stuck inside a storm fearing for her life when the parachute line broke, this disaster had her up in the air for 45 minutes, that time frame is no exaggeration (time frame provided by the air traffic control), until she crashed into the Puerto Vallarta airport, next to an alligator of all things(no joke).
 She is suffering with many injuries, fractured pelvis, skull, 4 ribs, face, cut to the forehead (which has been sutured already), collapsed lung, bleeding into the lung just to list a couple of things and will be in the hospital for a good while.
She is in a world of hurt and needs our help. She would be the first person to give her last penny to help people or animals in need. She is gonna have an endless number in amount for medical bills and the amount of work she’ll miss from her many many months of recovery. Please help a gentle soul in need.

***update 6/25***
She received surgery on Saturday 6/23 that repaired her broken jaw, broken cheek & face. Some titanium and mesh, 14 screws. That surgery alone is $21,000.00
Her current bill is estimated at $43,000.00.
Due to her pituitary gland being enlarged due to the head trauma the doctors here believe they’ve had the best to help Katie and have had surgeons from all over Mexico just for her operations, they have highly suggested for us to life flight/air ambulance Katie back to the states so that she can be scene/operated by someone who specializes in the pituitary gland.
We now need the expenses for a life flight back home for Katie. These are not cheap for someone who doesn’t have insurance. Ball park for to and from hospital and airport plus medical bed and nurse on hand $20,000+

Katie is in good spirit and has her humor back! It’s gonna be a long road of recovery, Please continue the prayers, kind thoughts and positive energy towards Katie, she needs all the support we can give her!

**Update 7/10**
With Congress & friends we got an air ambulance for Katie to UCSD!!

Katie is out of the Hospital! Due to constant support from friends & family we’ve been able to be the biggest cheerleaders for Katie.
She is now out of the hospital but has quite a few appointments per week (very expensive) to look forward to help her on her road to recovery.
