The family of Esther Goodale is uniting to raise money to help her with medical and living expenses after a serious automobile accident.

On Tuesday May 31, 2011 at about 7:00 in the evening, 19 year old Esther Goodale was on her way to pick her boyfriend up from work. Esther, who was in a Kia Rio, collided head-on with an SUV. She suffered severe injuries, including head trauma. Esther was taken to Upstate Hospital in Syracuse by Onondaga County Air 1 after the accident. There she underwent surgery for head trauma multiple times due to severe brain injury. After about a month, Esther was transferred to SunnyView Rehabilitation Center in Schenectady, NY. There she had a minor setback and was sent to Ellis Hospital there in Schenectady. She is currently being monitored to see if she can return to SunnyView soon. (7/7/11) Esther is a 2010 graduate of G. Ray Bodley High School in Fulton NY. She was previously employed by Wendy's in Fulton & at the time of the accident was an employee of Wendy's at Carousel Center Mall. UPDATE: Esther had the piece of her skull replaced and there has been a shunt put in her head to prevent fluid building up on the brain ... each day she continues fighting to come back to us ... she has had some minor setbacks but hopefully they are over now and she will continue to shine ... UPDATE 08/16/11 ...Esther returned to SunnyView Rehabilitation Center in Schenectady, NY today to continue with therapy ... it is a sad yet happy day because she will be so far away once again but this step is needed to aid in her recovery ...
