“I know Rebecca is a fighter. That she even survived this accident is nothing short of a miracle.”

On Saturday, March 13, 2021, Rebecca Aleck Koltun, a healthy, vibrant young woman about to graduate college, was in a life-threatening ski accident in which she suffered catastrophic injuries to her neck and spinal cord. Due to the tragic accident, she is paralyzed from the neck down and unable to breathe on her own.

In addition to coping with overwhelming shock, Rebecca’s parents now face exorbitant medical bills that their health insurance does not cover. Friends and neighbors of the family have joined forces to raise money through a Help Hope Live donation page in her honor.

“We all know and love Rebecca as a strong, smart, ambitious, funny and determined young woman…And we have no doubt Rebecca will approach the challenges she now faces with the same passion and fortitude. She already is.”
