Dear friends and family near and far,
As many of you already know, Lára Sif Christiansen (our sister, daughter, best friend, and aunt) had a severe biking accident on the 26th of May, resulting in a spinal cord injury, which has paralyzed her from her breasts down.
Still to this day there is merely a small change to her situation. Her rehabilitation in Iceland will be completed some time in August. The social medical system of Iceland will at this time no longer be responsible for her medical expenses as far as further rehabilitation is concerned. However, we have our hearts set on sending her to Craig Hospital and Rehabilitation Center which is located in Denver, Colorado.
We believe that there she will maximize her chances of greater recovery and acquire greater tools to live by in her day to day life, no matter how her situation turns out.
In Iceland there will be a multi-charity marathon on the 19th of August where many of her friends and family will run on her behalf to support her financially in order to help her pursue her wishes of going to Craig Hospital (which is quite costly for someone without insurance).
We would appreciate greatly any donation for her and ask you to please pay it forward. Whenever you need an uplifting smile - Lara has a perfect one just for that; the gallery above is chock full of her smiling face; be sure to check it out..
Thank you everyone and please keep her in your prayers.
