Catherine was in a single vehicle accident. She was on her way to school at NIU when the accident occurred. Her car flipped multiple times and her neck was broken. She sustained a serious fracture to the first cervical vertebrae her neck.
As a single parent, home owner and community volunteer Catherine was working part time while going to school full time, supporting herself and her daughter. As a result of the injury, she will need up wear a HALO while her vertebral fracture heals. She is unable to work, drive, or attend classes. The funds raised during the event will help to pay for Catherine’s mortgage and utility bills, Emma’s preschool tuition and groceries for the two.
