To help with medical care at home & living expenses for Mysti. She was in a hit & run accident while crossing the street Christmas Eve.

On Christmas eve morning, my friend , Mysti was crossing the street & was hit by a truck. Not just hit, but run over. It was a hit & run, vague description of truck & at this time no leads.

Mysti was degloved, which basically means skinned from the knee down. She has a broken femur, patella, tibia & fibula, all the weight bearing bones in her leg. She has severe nerve & muscle damage. She has had 7 surgeries so far, with many more to come. They had to remove part of her artery from her right leg to replace the destroyed artery in her left. She has had some skin grafts, one scheduled for next week & more to come. Her knee is full of hardware. She has some feeling in her foot but cannot move her toes. At this time, the doctors cannot tell if she will be able to walk ever again.

Right now Mysti, 32, is in a care center. Which is a nice name for a rest home for the elderly. She has to remain there until her family can move into a downstairs apartment (next week), then hopefully will be able to come home before her birthday Feb 23.

When she does come home she is going to need full time, 24 hr. care for quite some time. Her insurance will only pay for 2 days a week.

Mysti is the mother of a 16 yr old & a 4 yr old. Her mom has the responsibility of taking care of them, her & working.

We are trying to help with the help she needs that insurance won't cover & living expenses for her & her children. If you would like to like to help, you can send a check to:

Lena Shain (Mysti's mom)
1800 S. Pantano Rd. #1145
Tucson, AZ. 85710

Any & all donations will be used for medical care for when Mysti comes home & living expenses.
