I am starting to do some fundraising for my mom who many of you know was in a teriible car accident recently. She was hit by a 1-ton truck pulling a trailer and is lucky to be alive. She just had rib stabalizationd surgery on 7 ribs that were shattered and basically cutting away at her every time she exhaled. We have yet to know if she had a stroke or why she hasn't been able to speak very well since the accident. It could very well be a side effect from the accident that will go away or possibly something more long term and serious. Time will tell. The main reason that I am starting this is because there is a HUGE need for two things. The first problem is that we can't locate her eye glasses no matter how much we scan the crash site or her car. Without the glasses she is almost blind. My mom will not be able to do a lot of things for a time period but I want to her to at least have what we all enjoy everday; the gift of sight! I have been through my own financial problems with work comp and loss of work due to injuries otherwise I would love to pay the $380 for her new pair. She has bifocals so that is he main cost here as her lenses are $280. The other need will be for transportation. A GREAT friend of her's and our entire family had borrowed her a car to make a quick trip around town since she doesn't own a car. He just had liability insurance on it and it's now totaled. I would really be so very grateful if we could raise some money to give to him to get back his losses (around $1,500) for just being a nice man to help my mom get around town for a couple errands. If there was something left over, it will go to my mom to put towards a cheap car to get her around town. I really feel terrible that he is now without that vehicle too. Again the main need right now is the glasses and I sincerely appreciate every penny that can be put into this effort. Thank you all for your love and support along the way. We appreciate every prayer and kind word that has been said. Mom is doing well but has a very long road ahead of her. We feel very blessed that we still have her around to call "Mom" and "Grandma." I wasn't ready to try and tell my son that his Grandma Shelly can't be with us anymore. We will cherish each and everyday we have together. Much love and God bless you all.
