Kelsey Zionskowski’s first steps!!

We recently received an update from Kelsey Zionskowski, the young lady who lost a leg when struck by a car in Milwaukie late last year.

“I recently went back to OHSU for another surgery. This was a big surgery and the one I’ve been waiting for. They rotated my knee so that it is now facing the right way and put the rod into my femur. There was a plate holding the bone together so they had to remove that. The last thing they did was release the muscle that had scarred to the bone, which prevented me from bending my leg. The surgery went well and now I am back at Porthaven to continue to heal. However, two days after the surgery I was able to stand! The first time since my accident! It felt awesome. There is still a long way to go but I am making great progress.”

Kelsey is doing great and is looking forward to going home soon to be with her 5 year old son.

She has a long way to go and there are still a lot of things that are not covered by insurance that she needs help with, so if you’d like to help us help her, please consider a donation.  Checks can be made out to the CCPOBF with “Kelsey” in the memo line and mailed to PO Box 678, Clackamas, Oregon 97015.  A tax deduction receipt will be mailed to you promptly.
