The family an friends of HAYLIE NICOLE MARTIN is raiseing money to help with the extensive medical cost to due to a serious brain injury!

Haylie has suffered a serious brain injury and is currently in the care of Memorial Hermann Childrens Hospital Pdeiatric ICU.

Haylie is an 8th grade student at Woodrow Wilson Junior High School in Dayton, TX. She is a beautiful and loving 14 year old girl, whom has many friends and family that can’t imagine life without her. Haylie loves animals and taking care of children. On more than one occasion Haylie has rescued puppies, birds, and even squirrels. She has a very nurturing heart and because of it small children love hanging out with her. Haylie has been battling Bi-Polar and depression for the past several years of her life. Despite her problems, Haylie has a good heart and is always willing to help someone else.

On May 6, 2012, Haylie suffered a very serious brain injury as a result of a gunshot wound to the head. A small caliber bullet entered through the right side of the frontal lobe of her brain and traveled to the left side where it attempted to exit. The doctors did not expect her to survive past Tuesday, May 8, 2012, however, early Tuesday evening Haylie began displaying miraculous signs of improvement. On May 9, 2012 Haylie underwent major brain surgery to remove the bullet and clean up the wound. After surgery, the surgeon said “Haylie has already, beat the odds.” Haylie was scheduled for surgery to receive a tracheotomy and grastic tube on May 17, 2012, however, the surgery had to be cancelled as a result of a fever spike and her left lung collapsing. Haylie has now been able to recieve the surgery but still has a long way to go an many more neccesary procedures to over come. So as u can see due to the extensive medical needs that Haylie is under going while in the hospital she will also as well need extensive rehab assistants to help Haylie heal to become that loving 14 yr old girl that she was prior to her accident.The family is asking for your prayers and donations to help pay for upcoming expenses. So as a caring friend an family we would all like to give THANKS to each an everyone one that has taken time out to help Haylies family in this time of need. Whether itsby donations or even just your prayers. Everything is greatly appreciated not only by Haylie but her family an friends as well.
