Please help Roller Derby Dame Windy Storm with medical/daily living expenses to alleviate the financial burden for her and her family.

On Tuesday, August 14, 2012, single mother and roller derby girl for Peoria Push Derby Dames, Windy Storm, shattered her talus in her right ankle during a scrimmage. The talus is a critical bone in the ankle joint which connects the foot to the leg and is responsible for various planes of movement.

Windy endured surgery to reconstruct the talus and has had screws and pins inserted to hold the bones in place during the healing process.

Windy is a single mom with three young children at home. She is her family's only source of income. Since the injury, she has been unable to work at a local pizzeria as a server. With no income since August, she is in jeopardy of losing her home. Her medical bills are climbing.

The money donated will be used to pay for medical expenses and to assist with Windy's daily living expenses for her and her children.

Any donation is needed and appreciated. Windy has a heart of gold and has such a positive outlook on her life, even in the most challenging times. She would be the first in line to assist a fellow roller derby girl in need.

Please assist in any way you can!
