On Saturday January 12, in the early morning hours, my niece Kaycie was a passenger in a car traveling to PA. In order to avoid a deer the car swerved and hit an embankment causing it to roll over the barrier. The car flipped four times, miraculously both she and the driver survived - but Kaycie is in critical condition. As it stands now she is in a medically induced coma with a broken neck and a brain injury. She recently had a procedure for a tracheotomy and can not breathe without assistance. The doctors are monitoring her closely but we will not know the severity of what she faces until she can breathe on her own and they can take her out of the coma.
We are told that she will need to be hospitalized for several months, that she may lose some or all of her long term memory and may even need to relearn how to walk and speak. This is an early prognosis and we are hoping for better news soon.
Kaycie is a strong young woman and we know that her unending strength will pull her through this tragedy. She is a single Mother raising a beautiful 3 year old daughter, she had recently started a great job and had moved into a new apartment - she was doing really well for herself. We hope some positive news will come soon, but until then all we can do is try and provide Kaycie and her daughter some financial help to support them in the wake of this terrible accident.
We, Kaycie's family, decided to create this page in an effort to raise money to help with the astronomical medical bills and offset any personal expenses that will innevitably arise. Thank you so much for helping our family in this time of need, your care and concern are greatly appreciated.
