Kelley Schoppe's Recovery

$16,000 of $20,000 goal

Raised by 155 people in 9 months
Created September 19, 2017
I'm trying to raise funds to help out my friend Kelley Schoppe's road to recovery. She was hit almost head on by a drunk driver going 85mph on 9/6/17 . She received multiple injuries and has been in and out of ICU and surgeries fighting for her life. She is the wife of Jason Schoppe and mother of two precious kiddos ages 2 and 4 who she can't even hug or hold. She is also a stay at home mom without child care established. Jason has been by her side since the night of the accident. So I'm asking for help raising funds to help them with medical bills and living expenses in this time of tragedy. So anything will help. Please help by donating and sharing. Thank you!

For those of you who don’t follow Kelley on Facebook, she posted the following today. I wanted to share with y’all.


Today makes 6 months since my accident. 6 months since my world and my family’s world was flipped upside down.
September 6, 2017, as I slowed almost to a stop, to turn left onto my street, I waited for someone else to turn right. All of the sudden, there is a truck, going around that person, and headed straight for me. I just remember thinking that I needed to try and veer for the ditch to get away. I barely angled myself that way, before I knew it was too late. I knew I was going to be hit, and I knew it was going to be bad. Thank God that was all I remember from the actual accident part. I don’t remember the impact, or the horrific sounds I’m sure it made. The next thing I knew, someone was in my suv, in the backseat, holding my head. I remember them moving whatever it was that they used to hold it, and seeing a lot of blood. I felt a sense of peace somehow. People asked a lot of questions. I remember asking over and over for them to “please call my husband”. At some point soon after that, I had a very hard time breathing. I remember saying “please help me”. I could hear some women crying outside my vehicle. I would come to learn it was a women’s prayer group, and they did just that. My memory fades in and out at this point, though I can remember someone repeatedly saying “stay awake”. The wonderful firefighters worked hard to get in my door. They walked me through the whole process of what the jaws of life was doing. I remember the sounds of glass breaking all around me. When they finally reached me, they worked to free me, but my legs were stuck in the front of my Tahoe. I remember them pulling maybe 3 times and I was finally free. My memory is pretty much gone at this point. I don’t remember the ambulance ride to Life Flight, or my helicopter ride. My next memory is a doctor or someone asking if I knew where I was, and then I remember hearing Jason frantically telling me he was “here”. The next hours, days, even weeks are kind of a blur.

Yesterday I got a call from an unknown number. I answered. It was TIRR. They had a bed available, and wanted to admit me for round 2. They asked if I could come then, I said no. What about tomorrow? No. I sadly agreed on Wednesday. I figured that would give me some time to love my babies and prepare them, whatever that means. About 5 minutes later, I got another call. Insurance wanted me admitted immediately. Nothing can prepare you to just pack and leave your family, your home, your comfort. Did I even get to tell my dog goodbye? No clue. I’m so sad. I realize it’s for the best, and I can possibly learn to walk again, but goodness this sucks.

Thank all of you who have continually prayed for us. Thank you for your many acts of love, as they have helped us in so many ways. Thank you to those who have reached out to my family or me with a call, or a message. We appreciate you.

Kiss your family every time you leave the house.

DON’T DRINK AND DRIVE! (Some of you still do it. I know. You don’t think anything will happen...and you’re dumb)

Thank you for listening. I love you all. ❤️
