The Day Our Lives Changed Forever
Friday, May 22, 2015, my daughter, Victoria Faith (age 22 years and 4 months) was a pedestrian hit by a car traveling 45+ mph to cross Hendersonville Rd. just before 7 pm. Many details are still unknown and the accident was simply treated as a "fender bender"
Victoria Faith is in the Neuro Trama ICU at Mission Hospital. She has been in a coma and remains unresponsive at this time. There are over 18 hemorrhages in her brain. The neurosurgeon put an ICP monitor in her brain to determine where the pressure is. face & head lacerations, bleeding on the brain a deep cut on the chin w/ several stitches, a broken nose, crushed eye socket, a bruised lung and it knocked out some of her teeth, facial fractures, skull fracture and a hematoma on the left side of head. On a scale of 1-15 with 15 being the best, she is a 6. We are dealing with a lot of "wait and see" The neurosurgeon has told us, we are looking at months of recovery and multiple surgeries on her face.
She has no medical insurance at this time. She has a 4 year son, Ronan, that she loves dearly.
Her brother Matthew was sent off to boot camp to Parris Island last Sunday, with another 12 weeks left. It is imperative that when all those of us who love & support him, when you write to not discuss Victoria's situation with him. We know Victoria would love him by her side, but she would want him to finish his goal of becoming a Marine.
We are setting up a fund to help with expenses etc. if you would like to help. Thank you and Please, please pray & share.
Our goal is subject to change. We have no idea what we are dealing with but will keep everyone posted on her progress.
Victoria's Mom, Robin
