Chelsea is a 29-year-old woman who miraculously survived catastrophic injuries sustained on April 15, 2020. She was a pedestrian on the sidewalk in the City of Buffalo, NY when a police SUV responding to a 911 call, crashed into a car, lost control and struck her. She flew a great distance and suffered multiple fractures, including severe injuries to her spine and brain stem. Chelsea is currently quadriplegic and ventilator dependent. She has miraculously regained cognitive function and has the same great personality. She engages with family and friends via FaceTime using facial expressions, eye motions and by mouthing words.
Her family is seeking monetary donations to fund medical expenses for spinal cord injury rehabilitation, not covered by health insurance. A 3-month stay at $5,000 per day, along with approximately $55,000 for air ambulance transport to and from the facility, means she will require $515,000 to get state-of-the-art rehabilitation at Craig Hospital in Englewood, Colorado. This rehabilitation is critical to her future well-being and ultimately to her return to home. Chelsea’s family is praying for a generous outpouring of donations to facilitate paying for these extraordinary costs. We want to help! Please consider a shirt purchase of donation to Chelsea's online fundraiser.
