On the morning of December 8th at 6am Roberta Walker had just begun her bike ride when a large truck smashed into her from behind. She was wearing a helmet with a large light on the back. There was reflective gear and a headlight on her bike and she was traveling in a bike lane. She suffered catastrophic injuries that included a traumatic brain injury, a fractured skull, 2 burst fracture vertebraes, 9 broken ribs, a broken clavicle and sacrum. She was immediately rushed to a trauma center and underwent major surgery to save her life. She was induced into a medical coma and has been fighting for her life. So far she has undergone 2 brain surgeries and 2 spine surgeries and experienced many complications due to the critical nature of her trauma.

When Roberta becomes aware of her injuries she will be met with a life altering future and a long term recovery process with an unknown outcome. Every component of her life for the foreseeable future will be affected. The medical costs will be exponential with a need for adaptive home assistance and long term mental rehabilitation as well as physical. There is also a threat for future medical procedures that could present themselves in the near future or years down the road.

The driver of the truck that hit her was only carrying the minimum bodily injury liability coverage required in California. We are grateful for any help as this will be a very long and difficult road. This is the greatest challenge Roberta and her family has ever faced.
