Update #4

8 days ago

Lacy’s condition continues to improve! Last week she received a tracheotomy and was taken off the ventilator during the day so she’s able to be less sedated and a little more awake. Yesterday, she received some permanent skin grafts on her back and neck and now we wait for a few days to know whether they will take. She’s still on dialysis for her kidneys and the ventilator at night.
The hospital has opened up for visitation and it's good to be with her.
Thank you for your continued thoughts, prayers, and support!

More Info

Lacy is a wonderful and loving mother, daughter, sister, and cousin who would give the shirt off of her back to help someone out. 

While she was tidying her kitchen, Lacy's shirt caught the flame of a candle. Faster than she could get the layers of flammable tops off her body, they burned and melted to it. 

This tragic accident will have a lasting impact on her body, mind, and spirit as well as her financial situation.  Today, the news feels hopeful but we know she has a long, hard road ahead of her.  

Please consider contributing to this fund if you are able.  Please feel free to share this page far and wide.  Thank you!

Update #4

Thank you all for your generous donations! We crossed the $6,000 mark this weekend which will help support Lacy in her recovery.

Last week, was and exercise in patience an prayer as Lacy went through a few procedures to remove more burn in some areas and change temporary grafts in others. She will have several procedures like this until they’re sure all the burn has been removed and her body is ready for permanent grafts.

She is still on machines for kidney and lung support, and she’s making progress. She’ll remain in an induced coma while she’s intubated. We’re hoping her lungs are strong enough to come off the ventilator soon.

Thank you for your continued thoughts, prayers, and support.

Day 6 Update:

Lacy is making good progress! She is still intubated and on dialysis and her kidneys and lungs are getting the support they need. Today, they were able to remove all the burned tissue from her back. If all goes well, they will be able to do the same on her neck and under arm next week. She may need a few more procedures to remove all the burned tissue, and many more for skin grafts in the coming weeks. In the meantime, she is in a deep sleep and she can feel no pain. Thankfully, she’s in the very capable hands of the medical staff in the best burn ICU in the country.

Thank you all for your well wishes and support!

Update #1

Update: Lacy is still in a medically induced coma and stable. She is on dialysis to help her kidneys do their job. Earlier this week, they were able to do a procedure to remove most of the burned tissue from the front of her body, and they're hoping her body will be ready for them to do the same procedure on her back and neck soon.

Please share this fundraiser with your communities. Thank you for your continued support!
