Let’s raise some love for our Carolina Alcalde! As part of the storm this past weekend in the Washington, DC area, our very good friend Carolina Alcalde was in a tragic accident. She was struck by a falling tree that has left her paralyzed from the midsection down with a severed spinal cord, five broken ribs, a fractured shoulder blade and trauma to her lungs.
Statistics of Living with Spinal Cord Injury:
# Average yearly expenses can range from $228,566 to $775,567 in the FIRST year.
# Estimated lifetime costs due to spinal cord injury can range from $681,843 to over $3 million for a 25 year old.
She and her family need our support and any amount you can give will be a tremendous help! Using your bank account instead of a credit card will save the camp a large processing fee. Any amount will help. It truly will. We are rallying for as much press as we can to help assist her family with medical bills and relocation to Washington, DC.
