ATTENTION PEOPLE OF TUMLBLR, THIS WOMAN NEEDS YOUR HELP!!!! PLEASE DO NOT KEEP SCROLLING.
My sister Amanda’s life long friend, and a friend of the family’s has been in a serious accident just a few short days ago. This is the post from her sister:
Lauren suffered severe head trauma as a result of being struck by a car while on a run in Los Angeles the morning of Friday April 19, 2013. Lauren was admitted to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in West Hollywood immediately following the incident undergoing an emergency labectomy to remove a portion of the front left lobe of her brain as well as surgery to extract a portion of her skull to relieve pressure and allow the brain to swell. At this point, her status is described as extremely critical but stable.
Lauren and her family have a long road ahead to recovery but I am hopeful this page can serve to relieve some of the financial burden by raising funds in her name. If you know her, you also know that she has six siblings (ages 11-26) waiting anxiously at their home near St. Louis, Missouri who would love to see their sister. With your help, we can make that happen as well as help fund a portion of the flights, hotel rooms, meals, etc. along the way. Please help spread the word and donate if you can. Every little bit helps.
The response of help for this cause has been incredible, but I have faith that the people of tumblr can spread this story further. I won’t say anything crazy like “you have no heart if you don’t reblog this” but every post and reblog will help. Like the facebook page below to show your support, spread the word, and if you even feel the need to do so, DONATE for her recovery fund. Over $23,000 was raised in just one day, let’s see what else can be done.
PLEASE CONTINUE TO REBLOG THIS AND SPREAD THE NEWS. EVERY DONATION HELPS!
INCREDIBLE UPDATE!!!!!!! The support for all of this from all over the country has been crazy. The news has spread far enough to get the attention of thousands, including both Joey Fatone and Lance Bass of N’Sync, who both sent videos reaching out to Lauren! The amazing community has raised over $30,000 for Lauren to help cover medical bills, food and travel funds to get her family out to her as soon as possible.
And the craziest part? Ready for this?! TAYLOR SWIFT DONATED $25,000. The support has been incredible, please continue to reblog this post and get as much support for this incredible girl.
