Move Mountains for Bella

$15,951 of $100,000 goal

Raised by 137 people in 28 months
Last weekend, on Saturday, April 22, when the Bella (19 years old ) traveled abroad to Mykonos, Greece, enjoying their last day of vacation during their scheduled spring break, Bella, full time student at Saddleback College, was seriously injured in an accident. She was on an ATV with another student and lost control of the vehicle, flew off the bike and hit a wall. 

However Bella sustained serious injures, internal bleeding from the liver, a broken jaw, broken nose, her teeth knocked out. It has been a very crushing tragedy to her close friends witnessing the accident and for the students who are still studying overseas in Oxford for the next three weeks.
Bella, is a beautiful girl with great heart, she had planned to bring her Mum with her own saving to Europe to enjoy the last days of her trip, but unfortunately her Mum Brenda had to catch the first flight to Athens to see her daughter face totally covered in bandage and serious injures.

Bella is currently in a hospital in Athens, Greece. The medical care has not been great. friends who visited Bella in Athens, informed me today that the bandages had not been changed. Bella's wounds have not been cleaned, and the bedding has not been changed. For the past twenty four hours, her parents have made every effort to have her moved to a better medical facility, which would potentially include Medivac transportation, unfortunately the medical facilities are not that great in Athens and she is not allowed to receive a proper medical care in Germany or UK.

My purpose of doing this funding is to cover expenses incurred by trying to provide necessary medical care for Bella. The insurance company has not been cooperative, and there are a number of accrued bills that have already started: medical care at Mykonos, transportation to Athens, Greece, hospital accommodations in Greece, airfare for her mother, to travel to Greece to be with her daughter Bella, and potential transportation to move Bella to a better hospital. 

Now, all I need is 
1. your " PRAYERS " for her fast recovery.
2. Raise money for this beautiful angel to go back to LA and get the right medical care .(unfortunately her face is so bad that I don't have any permission to post it.

Happy Saturday ,

wishing you all dear Angels , Happy weekend :)
Hope you all are having a blessing day and as Arabella's mother I would like to wish you all mothers here who supported my daughter, HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY.

For your information, the surgery on Thursday May 11th, was 8 hours long and successful. Thanks be to the surgeons, doctors and nurses here in Los Angeles. I am amazed by their God given talents.

This is the beginning to the end. Arabella has been bravely awaiting this surgery for almost 3 weeks.

We are anticipating to be home by Sunday, just in time for Mother's Day. God as given me the ultimate gift, my daughter's life. It is truly a miracle.

It will be a long road to recovery. We are so grateful to all of you who have and are supporting her with your contributions, prayers and love.

May God bless you and keep you

Hi Angels,

We are back! We flew from Greece on Friday accompanied by a doctor. It was a long journey of 24 hours due to a 7 hour layover in New York. Finally, we arrived in Los Angeles on Saturday, May 6th. Arabella has continued to amaze me with her bravery. Although she is suffering, she continues to have a positive outlook.

Now in Los Angles, Arabella will finally have her much needed surgery to reconstruct her jaw, cheeks and nose. Surgery is scheduled for this Thursday, May 11th.

Upon arrival here, additional CT scans were taken and we discovered that she also has a fractured knee cap and skull. The neurologist advised us that the fracture on her skull will not need surgery and will continue to heal on its own. Her knee will be braced.

Please continue to pray for her. You have blessed us so much and we thank God for you.

Much love,

Brenda (Arabella's Mom)

Hello Dear Angels ,
here is an update on Arabella's health condition.

Arabella is continuing to improve each and everyday. Her doctors have cleared her to fly home for her surgery. Praise God!

We are just waiting for the coordination of all the different entities involved.
We are expecting to fly home by very soon.

In the meantime, we thought we would share pictures of the lovely caring doctors and nurses that are taking such good care of our girl.

Thank you for your continued love and support.

Blessings and love ❤️

Happy Sunday Dear All,
Here is a message from Brenda, Bella's Mum to you all.

April 30, 2017

Thanks to all who have showed their love and support for Arabella. God is using you to lift us up and we are so appreciative. Thank Arabella'a condition is improving little by little everyday. That is why I am now able to provide periodic updates. She is now able to speak a little and I have enjoyed hearing about her trip here in Greece and her many adventures. We even had a few laughs. However. If she talks to much her pain increases. Yesterday she began began a different feeding system using a tube through her neck and a milk solution. She has gone from a saline solution through her arm. She will receive more nutrients this way. Today she drank a little water through her mouth. This was such a treat for her as she has not drank water for a week. Her liver is stable and continues to be monitored. It will take 20 days for it to be fully recovered. We are still waiting for her jaw surgery which is called ORIF - Open Reduction Internal Fixation. Her doctors are still collaborating on when and where this will be done. In the meantime, we wait. As I have learned from many days of being here, she is at the best public hospital in Athens, which has some of the best doctors and surgeons. It is a very busy hospital so they have a lot of experience. Most people who suffer traumatic injuries come here. As a matter of fact, the Director of the unit she is in, took her as his patient. The nurses have been very attentive as well. We are getting familiar with the system here and are comfortable with her care. We praise God for all of you. Your love, well wishes, prayers and generosity have brought us to tears. We can't thank you enough.
God bless
We Sit, Pray and Wait
