On Friday, July 19, 2013, Lori Ahrens suffered an extreme motor vehicle accident in which her car flipped four times. Lori was ejected landing in a shallow embankment. The vehicle's rear axl came to rest on her back and she was trapped underneath. This occurred on an old gravel road leading to her parent's house where she was raised. Lori did not have a cell phone within her reach and was only able to reach a tall corn stalk. She wiggled the stalk fiercely and miraculously a couple had missed their turn, ended up on the gravel road to turn around, and saw the bizarre movement. They were able to locate her and call for help. She was airlifted to the ICU in Iowa City and treated for severe and disabling injuries. Lori's spinal cord was severed and all of her ribs were broken down one side and detached from her spine in the back. She suffered various other serious injuries as well, too many to name. She is currently suffering lower extremity paralysis, but we remain hopeful she may beat the odds and possibly walk again in the future. We are doing all we can to help in the meanwhile. She has mounting medical bills and her house needs to be converted to wheel chair accessible. Any help we can get with this financial burden will be greatly appreciated. Lori is very thankful to be alive and very appreciative of everyone's thoughts, prayers and concern. Every dime raised goes directly into Lori's account.

A MSG FROM LORI: August 31, 2013
To my Family & Friends who have had me in their prayers and are sending me words of love, hope & encouragement... Your thoughts and words have given me spiritual and mental strength when this body of mine physically could not. You have helped me more than you know. I would like to say thank you so very, very much and I love each and every one of you. GOD BLESS. -Lori Ahrens
