Sadly Laura’s husband did not make it but Laura did. There are still multiple procedures and physical therapy that Laura must go through to be able to start doing the day to day tasks again. Currently there is a gofundme fund in place to help raise money for Laura’s medical and living expenses. Please go to https://www.gofundme.com/436a54hh to donate today. Help make a difference during this time of need for Laura and show that she has community support.
