Jade's recovery fund - cost of living expenses for Jade while she's recovering from a motorcycle accident.

2/1 Update - this accident is so much worse than anticipated, and the recovery time so much longer, that we have decided to increase the requested amount. As this fundraiser is open until April, and we can't anticipate all of the needs she'll have over the coming months and years, we are using the initial momentum of this event to offset as much of these costs as possible.

1/29 Update - Jade's foot was amputated yesterday. The operation went smoothly and she is in good spirits. If all continues to go well, she will be home some time next week. AND THEN, the healing can truly begin.

1/27 Update - confirmed that Jade's left foot will indeed need to be amputated. This will be a crazy long recovery time; I am upping the amount needed. Please give what you can.

What we know right now -
Jade had a motorcycle accident in Oakland on 19 January, on her way to work. She went down hard and is at Highland Hospital in Oakland. She is at risk of losing her foot and, even if she doesn't, her foot will be non-functional for some time.

Her recovery will be long and arduous and it will be days, if not weeks, before she is out of the hospital. She still has cost of living, lost wages, a cat to feed, transportation, and infrastructure support for her recovery (she may be in a wheelchair for a time) needs.

This amazing woman is a brilliant writer, orator, historian, motorcyclist, and friend. Please help her get back on her feet (even if one of them ends up being bionic).

Thank you!
