Izzy's New Ride

Organized by: Krista McGuire

Krista's Photo


My friend Melissa (or Izzy as we call herĺ got into an accident the other night on I-79 on her motorcycle. It was around midnight, so there wasn't too much traffic. She wasn't stupid either. She was wearing her helmet and her riding clothes and had just merged lanes when she was struck by a deer trying to cross the highway. She was thrown from her bike, slamming off the ground and sliding while watching her bike skid an spark 100 yards away from her. Speed was a factor, but she was not speeding over the limit. Thankfully she walked away with only bruising and road rash. She's still in pain physically but she has gotten herself moving around and back to work. She has not let this slow her down. I'm afraid for her emotionally though, because riding really helped her depression and she is slipping back into it. I want to see my friend happy again. This isn't a sob story about a friend that died and the family is suffering (though, also a worthy cause to donate). This is a friend who was being very responsible and nature stopped her in her tracks. Please help me surprise her with the funding to buy a new bike. I just want to see her happy again. Thanks, Krista :)
