This is the Kristen Blue Burn Fund. The funds will be used for Kristen's medical cost and related expenses not covered by insurance.

Kristen Blue is a 21 year old young woman who enjoys working with troubled children, helping others in need, involved in punk music, hardworking and friendly individual loved by many people around her. Kristen has been known to help donate and raise money for others in need through websites like giveforward.

On Saturday April, 14th on her way home from work 21 year old Kristen lost control of the scooter she was riding when she hit a patch of oil/water. Her accident left her with second burns across both her thighs one covering her left thigh entirely, her right upper thigh, her pelvic region, her abdomen. Her shins, ankles, feet, and arms have deep lacerations and cuts.

Kristen has remained in good spirits while going in and out of medical care. She is currently in a lot of pain and hospitalized for an unknown amount of time. Right now she has out of network fees from insurance and her coverage is different due to her insurance and new location on the East Coast. Right now she cannot sit up in bed, use the restroom, or drink water without someone else's assistance. Kristen also has not been able to sleep due to the large amount of pain she is in. She will also be out of work as she recovers and does not qualify for any short term disability or get any compensation. Her moped is totaled and did not have insurance (not required for mopeds.)

Kristen's legs, abdomen, and pelvic area will be permanently scarred. In the next few days, they will decide if Kristen needs skin grafting.

This fund was created to help Kristen's family with medical fees. Out of network fees, hospitalization over night fees, shots, different skin tests they've done have all added up. Her mother is taking three weeks off of work just to fly out and provide 1-1 24-7 medical care. Donations are being taken for her family. Anything helps, big or small it all makes a difference! Her family appreciates all the help they can get.

It doesn’t even have to be a donation..a card, a message, anything will help her not only get through her days at the hospital, but the follow up outpatient burn treatments and beyond. Thank you!
