18 days ago, Julia (the Niece of our Russia National Directors Natasha and Valodia) was struck by a drunk driver as she was walking home in her village in Ukraine. She has been in the hospital in a coma and unresponsive up until a few days ago. Over the past week when her mother would speak to her she would try to reach for her and hug her. The doctors have been saying these motions were just reflexes and that Julia has no real hope of getting better. However, yesterday Julia sat up, opened her eyes and started speaking coherently. She recognized her family, remembered the accident, and talked to her aunt Natasha on the phone. The doctors are astonished that she could wake up and be mentally ok after 18 days in a coma. For her to be able to walk again, she will need an operation on her back which will cost several thousand dollars and in addition will need to go through a lot of rehab. Please pray for Julia to fully recover and heal.
