On Jan. 30, Molei Wright was driving to the mountains when her car was hit by a semi-truck. The terrible accident left her with severe injuries including a collapsed lung, severed spine, broken ribs, a traumatic brain injury (TBI) and a number of other issues.
Luckily, Molei survived the accident, but now she has to begin the long process of retraining her mind and body to breathe, walk, talk and eat – to live. With the right medical care, she can hopefully regain her former life, so her family and friends are raising money to cover costs that go beyond insurance, which are many.

Molei needs your help. She’s been through a lot and survived it all – a near fatal accident, a three-month coma, five months in the hospital total and uncountable setbacks along the way – but she survived. When she got home, she continued to receive care for a short time but unfortunately her insurance stopped covering her about four months ago. Without insurance, she’s been unable participate in therapy (speech, occupational and physical). That means she’s had a big setback in her recovery.
From the beginning of Molei’s injury, the doctors always said she’d have a shot at a full recovery. Without care though, she will fall short. A pending court case should give her the ability to make healthcare decisions for herself again and once she’s able she’ll need to work harder than ever if she wants to get back to a somewhat normal life. As time goes by, healing becomes harder, so she’ll need help. She can learn to walk, speak and eat well again, but only with the help of professional therapists. If you are able to donate, this fundraising campaign can only disburse funds for medical expenses and Molei plans to use if for therapy. Whatever you can give will be greatly appreciated and will go a long way toward helping a deserving person reclaim some of her life. Thank you for your kindness.

Well it’s been a while since we gave an update on Molei, but she got a special call from a Mr. Peyton Manning the other day and that’s worth noting! It couldn’t have come at a better time either. She recently had surgery to rebuild her vocal cords because her voice is faint, and some complications arose after. Three days after the surgery, we had to rush her to the hospital where she was intubated and admitted to the ICU for four days. It was really rough on her and really scary. It left her feeling a little deflated after months of progress. But just a few days after, Peyton called to tell her he was rooting for her! He said he’d been following her story and praying for her. That’s pretty much the perfect pep talk to get a loyal fan back on track. She was beaming for days and now she’s continuing to strive towards the goal of walking. Hopefully the surgery will work in the long run and she’ll get her voice back too! Big thanks to the G.O.A.T, Mr. Manning, for giving Molei a ring; such a small gesture, but such a large impact.
