Please donate and SHARE this page to help Courtney (Wray) Keene with the extensive medical bills that she will be facing upon recovery, hospital bills, and all the months of rehabilitation she will have to ensure.

On March 18, 2017, I drove up to Omaha to visit my sister, Courtney Keene and brother-in-law Chad Keene before a meeting that I had which happenend to be in Omaha right next to their house. I had spoken with Chad about how unsafe my car was and I was afraid of how bad it could be. He jumped right into action (wearing nice clothing and all) to check my engine and fluids to ensure that I would safely make it the 45 minute drive home to Lincoln. He wrote in huge letters GET YOUR OIL CHANGED!!! :) When I said goodbye to them, I went around to Chad's side and gave him a hug first, I couldn't reach Courtney to give her a hug, because she was buckled and I am short. We touched hands and I told them both I loved them.

I had no idea that in 2.5  hours, I would lose my brother-in-law instantly.

Courtney is in the ICU, they are monitoring her heart, it has been overloaded (stress, pain) so they are keeping a eye on that, a broken collarbone, a punctured and collapsed lung, two broken ribs, puncture wounds, a broken pelvis, vertebrae, leg, arm, wrist (and many more) as well as deep lacerations and bruises from head to toe that had to be stitched, a broken lower leg, and last but absolutely not least, the loss of her soulmate, Chad. 

I think about how glad I am that she did not unbuckle to give me a hug. Usually she would, but we were going to see eachother in a few days. My heart is broken for this former Iowa State Scholar 2010 Division I, First-team Softball player. She has lost the love of her life and her best friend. Chad would do anything to help anyone and their are many prayers needed for the whole Keene family during this horribly tragic time.

This page was created by Courtney Keene's oldest sister Ashlyn Wray. Donations will go to expenses while she is recovering, such as medical expenses, and hospital bills so that she has one less thing to worry about. Please help me raise some money to help out Courtney in her time of need. She has done something wonderful for everyone that has come across her in this world, and I am so proud to call her my sister.

UPDATE: Courtney just came out of surgery for her broken clavicle. (one of many bones) They stabilized it with a plate and several screws. They decided that her broken wrist will heal on its own. They will be taking her chest tube out tomorrow and she will be standing for the first time tomorrow. Prayers to her for as she gets back on her feet with her broken leg! Go Courtney Go!!
