On Target for Christina
Christina's Long Road to Recovery
Christina Morris, 21, was critically injured in a hit-and-run car accident on
Wednesday, September 19th, 2012 on HWY 485 (Mile Marker 54) in Charlotte, NC.
Her car wrapped around a tree on the driver's side and Christina suffered with two
collapsed and punctured lungs, broken ribs, a carotid artery dissection, a significant
stroke on the right side of her brain, increased cranial pressure in her brain, and a
diffuse axonal injury (to the brain) which we will not know the full severity of until her
cognitive abilities can be assessed fully.
Since those darkest days, Christina has made what may be considered a miraculous
recovery. Through care of an excellent medical staff, prayer, and the support of all of
us who love her - Christina is doing things that most of us take for granted and were
thought to be lost forever. After the slow process of waking Christina from an induced
coma and state of paralysis ... She's walking, talking, has regained a great deal of
memory (other than that horrific day) and will one day hopefully return to her life as a
bright, sweet, vivacious, bubbly college student. Christina aspires to be a pharmacist;
she's a talented artist and a wonderful cook.
After multiple surgeries, and more to come, Christina still faces huge obstacles and
will require various therapies for who knows how long.
The person who forced her off the highway has yet to be identified. Christina's
comprehensive auto insurance will not cover her at all in this hit-and-run accident.
Medical expenses are expected to be exorbitant, and continued rehab services will
be a necessity.
Help us help Christina and her family with some of this debilitating financial and
emotional burden. Christina's mother, Indian Trail Councilwoman Darlene Luther, her
family and friends, Charlotte Range Masters, and the Elite Training Academy would
all like to thank you in advance for your support.
