Hello friends and family of Daniela “Dani” Schirmer. On February 8th, 2009, Dani fractured her fifth cervical vertebra and became an incomplete quadriplegic. For nearly two weeks she was hospitalized in the Intensive Care Unit at Georgetown University Hospital. From there, Dani received eight weeks of additional medical care and therapy at National Rehabilitation Hospital.

Serious injuries like Dani’s require constant medical attention and on-going physical therapy. Costs associated with this type of injury are too much for one family to handle alone. Therefore we are raising money to help pay for expenses left uncovered by insurance.
