The family & friends of Stamatina are uniting to raise money to help with the medical bills incurred during her 5 cranial surgeries.

On October 4, 2010 my beautiful daughter was thrown off the back of a motorcycle onto the pavement. Her cranium cracked, she was taken to the ICU, clinically dead. Three nights later our only hope was a double craniectomy to reduce swelling to the brain. Then the waiting began.. After many months, infections & other complications, she finally came round. paralyzed from the waist down but able to understand & communicate.
Rehabilitation began immediately and things went well. We had to wait months for the first cranioplasty. The attempt failed and she was infected with a dangerous klebsiella infection. Now we had to wait 6 months for her body to be strong enough to attempt another craniotomy.
Rehabilitation continues so that she can get on her feet and walk again. Half her cranium is still missing ( right and left ) but she is alive and lucky enough to communicate. After two more cranioplasty surgeries, life will begin again..
