Step By Step
Greetings everyone. I have decided to start this FundRazr to raise funds to get me mobile. May 2011 I was in a horrific car accident. I was a passenger in the pictured car that was hit by a drunk driver. I sustained many broken bones from my chest to my toes, crushed pelvis/sacrum, collapsed lung and a partially disected aorta. Not many survive a disected aorta and I am lucky to still be alive. Unfortunately, the drunk driver had minimal coverage and no assets, therefore, I am left with thousands in medical bills and still need future treatments in hopes of walking once again. I have always been very independent and now I have to ask for help from friends and family to assist me. I have spent the past year inprisoned in my home except for doctor appointments and a few outings to visit some friends. I can't even take my dog for a walk. She too has had to suffer because of my condition. I am working very hard at therapy and did take 5 tiny baby steps without assistance last week. It hurt, was difficult and probably looked pretty funny but I did it. I really need a powered wheelchair and would like to drive someday. I need special equipment for my car so I can drive. I have always lived by the motto, "if I can't afford it ,I must not need it". Not true anymore. I really want my independance back and to socialize again. I would like to volunteer at the hospitals and give other accident victims hope for a better life.
