Thank you for your kind words, thank you for your prayers, thank you for all the positive vibes and thank you for your donations.
We will be transferring money you've so generously donated to Tanya's family asap.
More than a month has passed since our dear friend and Development Director Xavia, was in a terrible traffic accident. While riding her bicycle to work on April 24th 2012, she was struck by a van. She was rushed to the hospital with life threatening injuries where she remains in intensive care in a coma caused by severe head injuries. Xavia had some swelling to the brain, which has resolved, however we won’t know if there is any or the extent of any permanent damage until she regains consciousness. They’ve been able to reduce her pain medications, and take her off the sedation medications that were keeping her muscles paralyzed, however she has yet to regain consciousness.
Doctors have performed two surgeries so far to repair the fractures to her jaw and her left eye socket. The eye specialist that has been in to see her has stated that it is almost certain that she has lost the vision in her left eye; however once again, we won’t know the extent of the damage to her vision until she regains consciousness.

To help ease the financial burden on Xavia's family created by this tragedy, we've setup a Paypal donation account. If you would like to help, select Help pay Xavia's Medical bills in the donations window. All donations received by this account will be sent on to Xavia's family to help pay for medical costs, travel expenses and any other type of expenses they have/will incur by this.
