19964830_1493308208.6912_funddescriptionMerri my sister is a mother of three children, ages 9 months and a 9 and 12 year old.
Merris family and friends and those that know her have been shocked and sadden every since she was seriously struck while just sitting at a red light, when a car hit her from behind and rear ended her into a city bus that was also sitting in front of her she was severely hurt.  We are in need of help funding the cost for her to be transported  to either a facility called Craig in Colorado or another by the name of Rancho Las Amigos in California due to her needing the ventilator and medical support at the time of the transportation. Both are two of the top ten rehabilitation and long term care Specialty Hospital where she can get some of the best care and treatment specialized with her type of injuries, (brain and spinal). We are not asking for much, but we don't have the money to send her where she can get the best help she needs to get better for her and her kids. So anything you can give through your generosity would be appreciated and thank you for your time.
God Bless!

I would like to take the time out and inform family, friends and the community that my sister has not got justice that is owed to her and her kids. No charges were were ever filed against the driver who impaired her life, cause the restless and negligent because he knew that he was tired from working a shift on his job, then drove to Las Vegas after he worked, then went to Circus-Circus and who knows why he made poor judgement to leave to get a bite to eat and driving at least over 85 miles an hour which is a felony offense, assault with a deadly weapon, in the state of Arizona. The speed itself cause a horrific accident , which just some of her injuries. Her Cervical 4, 6 and 7th part of her spine, she had to have surgery on her neck because it was broke as a and is Paralyzed from the neck down. My mother and her boyfriend Kevin are her caregivers. if anyone knows that her Civil Rights have been broken and she has been without the proper healthcare for activities of daily living. Plus did the young man that cause the accident receive a ticket or any criminal punishments. Currently he walked away without a scratch and Merri, my sister fights for her life everyday. She is not getting the care she deserves and legally has a right to receive 24 hour care (around the clock), which should include Physical Therapy of some type ROM (range of motion), Due to the lack of Nevada's Legislative regulations or statutes, do they not believe in ethics or HIPPA laws. She has been neglected by the City of Las Vegas, NV. I am asking everyone for help with any lawyers, community resources or any help with her funding. Donations needed to help with the cost of living since he has taken a big part of her life away.
Merri with her kids. Hugs and kisses sister

I was paralyzed 9/26/16- I am now walking with a cane. Please block out all negative comments and set goals. I was told by medical professionals that it was not certain that I would ever walk again-I decided it wasn't their decision to make! Peace and blessings to you and your family.
