In March 2020, Bahia Matanchen Animal's surgical nurse, Ana Gutierrez was hit by a drunk driver. She sustained many injuries but the worst was her leg had to be amputated above the knee.
Because of COVID, she wasn't allowed visitors in the hospital and had to endure alone. She is a trained nurse and physical therapist so she knew the whole picture of what was needed to recuperate. Now she is home and on crutches, training to strengthen her right leg to carry and lead her movement. She changes her dressings herself. In June 2020 she will be ready for a prosthesis. This is an incredible story of recovery!
Ana needs our financial help. Ana is a hard-working woman, persevering with a positive attitude and a renewed sense of what is important to her life. BMA is one of her passions. Please help someone who is good, brave, and a fighter for animals. She deserves our support. BMA needs her.
