Dear beloveds,

It is with a heavy heart but a lot of hope that we are writing this campaign. Our dear sister, friend and intergalactic butterfly Cynthia is in hospital after suffering severe injuries in a car accident. Currently she is in Mexico where she was traveling and receiving emergency care in a local hospital.

Roxy, her oldest sister, called me today with the news about what had happened. She has dropped everything and on the way from Canada to Mexico to see her sister. We are still unsure what exactly has happened and the extent of her injuries. 

So far we have been told that she has a head injury. Her skull has been broken and she is having internal bleeding. She has also broken parts of her body. Right now she is unconscious but has woken up at some point but very confused and disorientated. 

The hospital spoke with Roxy and are wanting 5000 dollars for the current treatment and there are potential ongoing costs that could be from 10,000 dollars and more. Obviously this has come out of the blue and as many of you know, we are traveling musicians that don't have that kind of savings tucked away!

Cynthia is an amazing soul and we are all very shocked and saddened by this news. We are sorry that this may be the way some of you are finding out about this and we hope that you can send prayers of healing to be with her now. Roxy has asked me to write a campaign to help with the financial costs if any of you also feel called to support with that angle. All love, prayers and support towards her recovery are appreciated.

Cynthia is a very dear friend of mine and I'm sure many of you have had the pleasure to meet with her. Anybody that has had that chance will know what a positive and inspiring person that she is! Let's help her get on the road back to health and look forward to more moments that we can share with her <3

Infinite love to all our relations – love and cherish each other as much as you can!

Aren’t they so cute ?

Yesterday as I we walked into the room after dinner we found these two beautiful birds lying in Cynthia’s bed sleeping like babies. Such a heart warming sight it was for all of us .

It was Cynthia’s third night out of intensive care last night. Today a physiotherapist will come and try to help her stand up and maybe even start walking. Those are amazing news and we are very delighted. If things continue to move on well she might be able to get out of the hospital at the end of the week. We will then relocate to a hotel close by the hospital for most likely another week before we try to fly with Cynthia to .

Lots of uncertainty still has Cynthia didn’t have any insurance, even in Canada so we are investigating everyday to see what’s best for her. It’s a challenging process and we are surely learning so much on so many layers.

Thanks for all your love and support. Please keep sharif the campaign we still need lots of financial aid. We are so grateful for all your love and prayers and we keep praying for a full recovery for Cynthia. One day at a time.

Love and light from Cynthi and her family.

Day 12 here in Merida.

Updates on Cynthia's recovery after a grave car accident in Mexico. Cynthia is recovering from a concussion, a cranial fracture and a brain hematoma.

Please keep sharing my beautiful ones, we still need to be in the hospital for many days and the bill keep rising up !

All our efforts are paying off tho ! Cynthia is finally getting out of intensive care tomorrow and going into a room. We are so happy that we will be able to be with her more hours per day. This will allow us to change the light situation, put music on, candles, incense and all of the beautiful things that will help Cynthia recover faster. Right now she is in a very intense setting (intensive care) where people are between life and death all around her and it's time to change scenery.

We thank all of you who helped us so far and sent us prayers, love and donation. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

We love you,

Cynthia's family and friends xoxox

Ici c’est la traduction de la campagne pour notre famille et nos amis francophones !!!! Merci

Amis, famille, collègues, connaissances, et à tous nos petits anges gardiens,

C’est avec le cœur lourd, mais avec beaucoup d’espoir que nous écrivons cette campagne. Notre chère soeur, amie, Cynthia, est présentement à l’hôpital, suite à de nombreuses et sévères blessures dû à un accident d’auto. Actuellement, elle est au Mexique, où elle voyageait et elle reçoit des soins d’urgence dans un hôpital locale.

Roxanne, sa plus grande soeur, a aujourd’hui tout abandonné pour se rendre du Canada au Mexique afin d’être auprès d’elle. Nous sommes toujours incertains quant à la cause de l’accident et de l’étendue de ses blessures. Apparemment, elle alterne entre l’état de conscience et d’inconscience et elle aurait une blessure au cerveau. Cynthia a été admis à l’urgence et avec l’argent que nous avons envoyé ce matin, elle a pu être transféré au soins intensifs. Elle a une blessure à la tête, une partie de son crâne est fracturée, elle a une hémorragie interne ainsi que des membres de cassés. Elle est sous supervision en tout temps et elle est toujours sous moniteurs et elle subie plusieurs tests.

L’hôpital a parlé avec Roxanne et on déjà réclamé 5000$ (70 000 pesos) qui ont été envoyé pour un traitement au cerveau et il y aura potentiellement beaucoup d’autres frais. Clairement, c’est arrivé du jour au lendemain et nous n’avons définitivement pas les moyens de couvrir la majorité des frais reliés aux soins qu’elle a besoin.
Cynthia est une femme merveilleuse, et nous sommes tous choqués et attristés par ces nouvelles. Nous sommes désolés que certains d’entre vous apprenez la nouvelle de cette manière, et nous espérons que vous lui envoyoierai des prières de guérison pour la supporter et être avec elle en esprit. Nous faisons cette campagne pour avoir de l’aide financière, si vous vous sentez appeler à aider notre petit ange. Tout l’amour, les prières et le support pour son rétablissement sont grandement appréciés.
Cynthia est notre soeur, notre amie, notre fille, notre petite-fille, notre nièce, notre cousine ... et je suis sûre que beaucoup d’entre vous ont eu la chance de
la rencontrer. Et si vous faites partie de ceux-ci, vous savez à quel point elle est une personne positive et inspirante.
Aidons-la a retrouver la santé.

Beaucoup d’amour à tous nos proches. N’oubliez jamais de prendre soin de vos proches et de les aimer du mieux que vous le pouvez.

Hello everyone.

I just got to Merida Mexico this morning on time for Cynthia’s visit time. Cynthia is still in intensive care and can receive visitors three times a days for an hour.

It’s with an heavy heart and anxiety in my chest that I put the hospital jacket on, the mask and entered the intensive care to bring all my love and strength to my beautiful little sister.

With a deep breath I left my anxiety at the door and with firm steps walked towards her bed, bed number 4.

Cynthia was lying down on her side, foetus position, she looked like an angel as always. I started to talk gently in French, touching her and letting her know I am now here for her.

She has a nurse who is with her 24 hours a day. She is monitored and receiving some antibiotics for infections and some pain medications. She has a lot of wounds, she fractured the base of her cranium and had internal bleeding in her brain. Liquid and blood is coming out of her ear so she has to be in a sterile environment to make sure she doesn’t have any infections. She does not have any other broken bone which is a miracle.

It’s hard to see your little sister, ally, best friend in such a state but I had a good feeling when I saw her and i feel she will be ok. I sang her some of her favorite Krishna mantras other medicine songs and told her how much she is needed, loved and that no matter what we are here for her.

The hospital is taking good care of her but it’s a private hospital and is very expensive. Today is Cynthia’s third day here and we are approaching 10000$ for all that she needed done. Hopefully she will be out of intensive care soon and we won’t have to test so regularly if things are getting stable but she might have to be here for a while more.

Please, share with everyone and help us bring this angel back to a perfect health. The hospital here won’t give her care if we don’t pay upfront and we don’t want her to be in some shitty public hospital. Cynthia is such a gift in this world and we really need her to make this world a better place.

We, her family, her partner Felipe, Felipe’s and Cynthia’s friends and family are tired and exhausted but so so so grateful for everyone reaching out and supporting us. Please do not take it personally if we don’t get back to you very fast we are doing a lot here and a lot of people want to hear about Cynthia which is why I am doing this update.

Love to all of you from Cynthia and all of us ❤️
