Kelleys Biggest Adventure
A 3 minute video of Kelleys journey to recovery. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jw0_ifmJ7qU by Trish Lee
In October of 2007, Kelley became paralyzed from the waist down from inflammation of her spinal cord, caused by a condition known as transverse myelitis. She is currently on what has turned out to be a long and difficult road to recovery. But recovery is occuring. She has made encouraging progress in motor function, and she is fully committed to walking again. If you want to help Kelley in her effort through much needed financial support, you can either send a donation as described under the fundraising tab below, or you can also purchase a copy of "3 women, 3 Hundred Miles" through the following website www.carrclifton.com (click on the publishing tab at this website, which also includes a paypal option for payment). This 65 minute documentary chronicles a self support adventure on river boards down the Colorado River, by Kelley Kalafatich, Julie Munger, and Rebecca Rusch. The story is original and engaging, and the imagery of the Canyon is spectacular. This blog is a forum to keep updated on Kelley's progress, as well as for you to post messages for Kelley to read. You can also send her email's directly at the email address provided in the blog header.
To make a donation to Kelley's tax deductible medical fund account please visit her web page at www.ntafund.org. Just type kalafatich in the space for patient last name and follow the instructions from there. All donations made through her page on this website go directly into her account managed by this non-profit organization.
