The friends and family of Brianna Ward are uniting to raise money to help with any medical costs and related expenses to bring her home.

On September 1, 2012 Brianna Lynn "Dolphin Fin" was in a serious car accident. After spending 16 days in a coma in critical condition in the Neuro ICU at IU Methodist Hospital she was upgraded to stable condition and has now been moved to a rehabilitation hospital. She is still in the process of waking up from her coma.

Brianna suffered a severe brain injury from this accident that required immediate brain surgery. She also has the bone flap removed from the right side of her head, to allow her brain to swell and heal without causing any further damage. Brianna also suffered a broken neck, a fracture to her eye, and a broken nose which is so severe it will require surgery at a later time. Brianna also suffered a stroke as a result of her brain injury and this has most likely affected her vision, though we will not know until she is fully awake. We do know that even after she leaves the rehabilitation hospital she will require several further surgeries.

At the time of the accident Brianna had just started a new job and had no medical insurance. After rehabilitation she will be going home with her mother and will require 24 hour supervision. Her mother works full-time, as well as attends a college course one night a week. This would mean that even after she came home, there would be tons of expenses that even medical insurance would not cover.
