Quick update: Nipps has finally been sent home from the hospital where her and Babe can finally start to heal and recover.
Yvette's and my goal is to help our skaters with lowering the costs they'll have to pay out of pocket as we know insurance will not cover all of this. Hospital bills are estimated at $50,000, so we are doing all we can to keep this fundraiser going. We are going to up our goal in hopes of reaching a high amount so we can help cover all four skaters medical bills. This estimate does not include collateral damage of:
1. A totaled minivan that got our skater to work
2. 5 days of medical bills
3. Ambulance and triage care
4. Legal fees
5. Missed days of work
Again we are so thankful of the generosity from our contributors. Please continue to share and post this fundraiser anywhere possible.
As of today Nipps is still in the hospital, but has been moved from an ICU room to a regular room. She is still having scans taken to make sure everything is clear. These girls are loved by many and they send their "Thank you!"
I have been brought to tears many times by how generous everyone has been. I "Thank you," on behalf of our league. These donations mean so much to the girls as it will be a slow but healthy recovery and a mess of a trial.
Again in thank you all, please spread the word if you can and Happy Holidays!
There has been an amazing and overwhelming amount of support! On behalf of the girls and the league we thank all who have donated already! Please continue to share and support our girls! It's only day one of donations and this is great! Derby love all around!
