If you've found yourself on this page it's because you know just how special JP and Hannah are and would like to support their recovery. In case you're not sure why you're here, let us fill you in.
JP and Hannah have been inseparable since the moment they first met. Having dated for close to 3 years now, you would think they were childhood sweethearts with how well they compliment each other. Whether it's out dancing at a concert , relaxing on the beach or spending quality time with friends and family, these two are always making the most out of life and love a good adventure as long as it’s together. Which brings us to why we have created this fundraiser.
On June 25th, while living their adventurous lives driving a dune buggy at Pismo Beach, JP and Hannah were involved in an unfortunate accident. The sand dunes at Pismo are constantly shifting with the power of Mother Nature and sadly JP and Hannah went over a dune unaware of the 30 foot drop on the other side. At the time of the accident both JP and Hannah had no feeling below the waist. They were taken to separate hospitals, JP by ambulance and Hannah by helicopter. Once they arrived, it was determined that they both would require immediate back surgeries to stabilize their vertebrae. Doctors were able to operate on JP that evening. Based on the severity of Hannah's back injuries, as well as two broken legs and multiple internal injuries, she was flown to Stanford Medical Center in Palo Alto where doctors felt she would receive the best care.
Within a few days, JP has recovered movement in his left leg and some movement in his upper right leg. Hannah has received four operations and is showing small signs of improvement with some sensation below the waist. While the long term outcome of their injuries is still undetermined, what we do know is their competitive spirits and drive will stop at nothing short of giving it their all. That being said, the journey will be very costly.
The hospital costs for multiple surgeries plus transfers by ambulance, helicopter and airplane will be extensive. Soon, JP and Hannah will be transferred to a long term care facility where they can rehab and the expenses will accumulate daily for their inpatient care. There will also be the regular everyday costs associated with their life altering injuries, such as: co-pays and deductibles, medications and treatments not covered by insurance, loss of income, travel expenses for their family going back and forth from Sacramento, Oregon and South Dakota to Stanford and Valley Med in Santa Clara for regular visits. It’s hard to think about this, but there is even a possibility they will have to find a new apartment as their current one is on the second floor and stairs will likely not be an option for quite sometime, if at all. That will result in moving costs and expenses we haven’t even thought of yet.
This Fundraiser page is here for you to help. All donations will be sent to both of them to split at their discretion. There are no fee's taken from this platform, so you can rest assured that they will see every dollar from your donation. On behalf of JP and Hannah, their families and closest friends, we appreciate the outpouring of love, positive vibes, prayers and support shown over the past few weeks and undoubtedly, in the months to come.
