The Story

Time to rally the troops to help The Schiemann Family!

As many of you know, Addie was involved in a UTV accident on July 14th, 2017 and was air flighted to UNMC for emergency surgery where her arm had to be amputated.

Addie has already shown so much strength and is such a fighter and an inspiration to all of us!


During this time, our thoughts and prayers are needed as well as financial support for Addie's current and future medical expenses.  Many of you that are close to this family have already reached out to help, so here is where we come together to encourage and support Addie and her amazing family!

Please consider giving any amount you can as it is greatly needed and appreciated.

Addie continues to inspire us all with her spirit and amazing positive attitude!  All of her visitors and messages from everyone have helped to raise her spirits and shown her how much she is loved!  Her smile has been so uplifting!  Please continue to shower her and her family with love and support.  You are all so amazing with the support you have poured out for their family thus far.

We have decided to update the amount of funds we feel will be needed after finding more out and researching what her needs will be.  These not only include the current medical bills from her life flight, transfusion, surgeries and hospital stay, but also a new prosthetic arm she will need now, and potentially another as she continues to grow.  On top of that the many many hours of Occupational and Physical therapy to help her learn to do the everyday ordinary things with only her left arm.

Please remember to keep the Schiemann family in your prayers and anything big or small that you can donate will go a long way to helping their family as they move forward in helping Addie adjust and thrive in the next days, months and years!!

Wanted to update everyone... Addie had another surgery this morning to look at her arm, and to make final decisions on if they needed to clean it out more and do a skin graft to get it closed up.  Jen said the surgery went well, they were able to get it all cleaned up and it looked good from the first surgery.  They were able to close it without needing a skin graft!!  They are needing to keep it elevated to help with the swelling but this is all great news!  

Jennifer also wanted to say that they are all so very thankful for everyones support and thoughts and it means so much to Addie and their family!!  She will contact people individually as time allows, but know they are getting your messages and feeling all your love!
