This is a blog dedicated to supporting our daughter, Christina Morris, 21, who was critically injured in a hit and run car accident on Wednesday, September 19, 2012 on Hwy 485 (mile marker 54) in Charlotte, North Carolina. Her car wrapped around a tree on the drivers side and Christina suffers with two collapsed, punctured lungs, broken ribs, a carotid artery dissection, a significant stroke on the right side of her brain, increased cranial pressure, and a Diffused Axomal Injury (brain) which we will not know the severity of until she comes to, and her cognitive abilities can be assessed. She has been in a coma and a medically induced state of paralysis in Critical Care in the Trauma Unit, fighting for her life. Today, the doctors have begun the long, emotionally taxing process of slowly waking Christina from her induced coma and paralysis in order to begin assessing her condition and the severity of her stroke, but maintaining her cranial pressure and allowing her to “come to” has been a delicate balance.
Donations to Christina’s medical and recovery fund are appreciated!
We also created this website to facilitate much needed donations to the recovery fund we her family have established for Christina. Christina has a long, hard road ahead of her. Medical and rehabilitation expenses are expected to be exorbitant (and a necessity). Any contribution you are able to donate to her recovery fund will help her significantly get back on her feet. Every donation is much appreciated, especially in light of learning that her auto insurance will not cover her at all in this hit and run incident since she only carried comprehensive insurance as required by North Carolina law. See the Donate directly to Christina’s recovery & rehab fund over on the right side of this page – it’s the 1st “Donate” button.

Prayers are still needed!
Prayers are greatly appreciated for our young and vibrant “Christina Bina”. Always a positive, smiling presence in each of our lives, it is absolutely heart wrenching for we, her family, Geoffrey, her boyfriend, and her friends near and afar to see her comatose and fighting for her life, all because one person had enough road rage to hit and drive her off the road – and then flee the scene leaving her to fight and struggle to survive.
A bright, sweet, vivacious, bubbly college student in her third semester, Christina aspires to be a pharmacist; she is also a talented artist and a wonderful cook. We believe in Christina; we believe in the power of prayer and the strength and support of family; and we know she will fight through this. Our spirit will remain unbroken.
