Free Kite Holiday to help Zoe
Thanks everyone for the huge support, advice and messages, you all made ZOE very happy and smiling all day long, the support is unbelievable, you guys rock, we love you all, more updates/posts tomorrow. ***
If we haven’t posted much pictures or given too much news the last couple days it is because Zoe, my beautiful girlfriend, responsible for taking some of the amazing pictures or kitesurfing on some of them has suffered from a pretty bad accident.
She ruptured her femoral neck completely in her leg by sliding and falling in a concrete ditch at night.
As some of you know, we live in the little Caribbean island of Union Island where you cannot get appropriate health care.
We had to fly her to Martinique island for an emergency surgery, she was in a lot of pain the whole time.
After a four hour long surgery, the surgeon placed three screws and connected everything back.
She is now at the hospital slowly recovering from the surgery.
Unfortunately this very rare case of bone fracture at a young age (Zoe is only 27 years old) require a very long recovery process in a specialized center.
Zoe is from an English dad and Austrian Mom, she was born in Martinique and lives in the Caribbean, She has the Austrian nationality but doesn’t have any national healthcare for Austria.
Unfortunately because of her complicated status she doesn’t have the appropriate insurance to help her pay for the recovery process.
Now the recovery process requires her to not put any pressure on her damaged leg for at least 2 months.
During these two months she will need to get assistance from a physiotherapist and get proper leg movement done by them.
After the two months she will theb have to learn how to walk again, this could take 3 more months of proper rehabilitation in a specialized center.
Unfortunately such centers cost a huge amount of money and Zoe doesn’t have any insurance that can cover this.
We are now looking at different options, first one would be to do the rehabilitation directly on Union island with her staying home in her bed and have a full time Physiotherapist at home taking care of her recovery process (see Job offer below)
Our second option is to find out if any national insurance would cover the cost (doesn’t look that way).
The third option will be to create a gofundme page to request everyone’s support but we want to keep this option only if we require it.
I will do everything necessary to make sure she can walk properly again.
