4th Annual Fundraiser scheduled for Corey Beattie of Avondale, PA
Rockfest for Corey scheduled for September 12, 2014 at Paradocx Vineyard
On October 2, 2010, Corey Beattie was the passenger in a horrible car accident in New London, PA. She was hit broad side on her door as a passenger in the car. The force of the accident left Corey with a global brain trauma, a broken neck at C1, fractured clavicle, multiple pelvic fractures and a fractured right femur. After multiple surgeries, Corey’s fractures began to heal and she was considered stable to transfer to Bryn Mawr Rehabilitation Hospital. Corey’s most severe injury was her global brain trauma, a diffused axonal injury. Recovery from a Traumatic Brain Injury of this type is very slow. She had intense physical, occupational, speech and cognitive therapy 3 hours a day, 6 days a week. Unfortunately, the Insurance Company does not understand that the victims of a Traumatic Brain Injury, especially those with a severe injury, do not make weekly gains. A severe injury cannot be compared to mild or moderate injuries nor should they be held to the statistical national average length of stay in an acute care facility. Corey was transferred home where her intense therapy continued. Corey is a living miracle! Her tenacity and positive attitude is the strength she draws on to workout 7 days a week for over three years now. She is now sitting independently. vsxvo She has regained mobility and is walking with assistance, eating, speaking and dreaming of the day she can achieve her goal to attend a Culinary Arts College and become a Chef. Corey has a long road ahead of her which is very costly. Her family is fundraising to hire private therapists to replace what Insurance will not approve. Their goal is to raise money to purchase the therapy tools and expertise that will assure Corey the optimum opportunity to regain the life she once dreamed of.
