Prayers and Support for Ashley Hit and Run Victim

The beautiful soul pictured here, is Ashley Paxman. A vibrant 29 year old woman, with a heart of gold and a full life ahead of her. She has lived in Winfield, BC, with her family all her life. For those of you that know her, know that Ashley and her family have suffered more than their fair share of losses and tragedy. Losing her dad suddenly almost 3 years ago, her uncle prior to that to cancer, her mom had a stroke after the passing of her dad, and her aunt passing this past summer. Needless to say, the Paxman’s have been through a lot, no one could have imagined tragedy would strike again so soon.
 
On the evening of February 18th Ashley Paxman was walking home from work, when she was the victim of a hit and run, less than ten minutes from home. What should have been a simple, quick walk home from work turned in to a horrific tragedy. This is a girl who works 2 jobs, and has worked her entire life. The person who found Ashley saw a backpack & shoe on the road, and then discovered Ashley unrecognizable lying in the ditch. She had been hit so hard the impact knocked her out of her shoes. Now Ashley lay unresponsive on life support in the ICU.  After spending the day in surgery, doctors are hopeful for recovery, although it will be a long painful road, with more surgeries ahead. There is still uncertainty as to whether her eye can be saved and regain normal function. Ashley’s brain continues to bleed, threatening long term damage, the bones in her entire face were shattered and she will have lasting nerve damage. The doctors have been able to reconstruct her fingers and repair her tongue; her jaw will be wired shut in the near future as she awaits a second surgery to repair the extensive damage. At this time the driver who hit Ashley has been in contact with police. There is not a lot of hope that financial aid will be forthcoming through insurance, and financial stress is sure to accumulate. We ask for your support in any way possible for this young lady.
 
Prayers and financial aid are welcomed. Funds raised will be used to aid in Ashley’s extensive recovery, equipment required for rehabilitation and the rehabilitation itself. Let’s not add financial burden on top of this.  We appreciate your much needed prayers.54828898_1614022289605834_r.jpeg
