Check out this link for a video of Oksana's Story featured on CTV News Edmonton
On August 5, 2012 Oksana Izio was involved in a car collision with a moose outside of Slave Lake, AB. Upon contact, she sustained injuries to her C5-C7 vertebrae in her spine which has left her paralyzed from her shoulders down. Doctors have given her 1% of any recovery but she is very determined to prove them wrong. Currently, she is in a rehabilitation hospital in Edmonton but will be moving into a new home and continuing her positive recovery process in the New Year.
For those of you who do not know her, and those who do will certainly agree, she is the most uplifting, courageous, self-less, kind spirited person you will ever meet. She has accomplished so many unbelievable things in her life so far - from teaching English in Japan, backpacking Central America, to researching in the Arctic and is so determined on finishing her last semester at the University of Alberta for a degree in wildlife biology. She won’t be stopped!!
By donating you will help so much in her on going recovery. Every little bit counts! She is such an amazing person who deserves the absolute best rehabilitation treatment available. Please help her and her family continue to prosper through this difficult time and to show the doctor’s that she can beat the odds and one day walk again!!
