This is their recovery fund. The funds will be used for their medical costs and living expenses not covered by insurance.

On November 10th, Jason Miller, and his girlfriend Marta Reischman were involved in a head-on car accident, near their home in St. Paul OR.

They were lifeflighted to the Legacy Emanuel Hospital in Portland, OR, shortly after the crash. Jason is due to have surgery on his hip, to help repair his pelvis, and reduce the risk of arthritis as he heals and ages. Marta had broken ribs four years ago and was still in pain at the time of the accident, she now has to deal with that, and a punctured lung all over again. As you can imagine, they are both pretty banged up.

Marta is a very compassionate and hard working mother of two. She always puts her best foot forward, and makes sure everyone around her is laughing. She is always joking and being silly with everyone. But she also has an amazingly compassionate side, the kind that if you're hurting, she just knows how to make you feel better. She's a wonderful human being and I would give anything to hear her laugh again.

Jason is a wonderful family man, who would give the shirt off his back to anyone in need. He too, is a comical and joyful person to be around. One of those people that brightens up a room as they walk in with their smile and warm heart. He's a hard working man, that loves to eat Grama's cookies, and put his own kill on the table. A man that deserves the best, and he found it with Marta.

As I had seen the two of them the day following the accident, Marta had been making jokes with us, but then got very serious and said they had cut off her "Starkey's sweatshirt" that she loved so much. Starkey Station is a convenience store and gas station located in beautiful Starkey, Oregon. It's nestled in the heart of Oregon's prime Elk and Deer country. Jason likes to hunt there with his Dad Gale, and Brother Darrell Miller. Jason is an avid hunter and recently started bringing Marta along with him. So to her that sweater meant a lot, so if anything I would at least like to raise $50 to get her a new Starkey's sweater.

My name is Jordan Van Bergen and as Marta and Jason's Niece I'm taking it into my hands to make sure they can be rewarded for all that they have done for others in their time of need. Thank you for your time and donation.

"UPDATE: Marta is recovering very very well! Jason is also doing well! He is due for hip surgery Monday November 14th. He will have an extensive recovery time set at 8 to 10 weeks. He needs all the prayer and love he can get :) Please send love this way for the both of them!"
