Hello everyone, my name is Ashley, and my sister’s name is Alicia. In April of 2008 my sister was in an hit and run accident, which changed my families lives forever. My sister was only fourteen years old at the time, and she suffered a severe brain injury, and she was in a coma for months on end in the hospital. My sister had to undergo many brain surgeries due to the severe trama to her head, as well as collar bone surgery due to trama to her shoulders and arms. My sister was in the hospital for so long, which resulted in her having little mobility to the right side of her body. Doctors told my family that she would not survive, and if she did, then she would be in a vegetated state for the rest of her life. However, she eventually woke up out of her coma, although she had little responses to stimulation. Over time she started responding to people and interaction, but I knew that she would never be the same again. Eventually we were able to bring my sister back home, although she required a hospital bed, a wheelchair, and other special items. She had a trakea so she could breathe, and she had a feeding tube. My mother, Melissa, had to take money out of her retirement funds in order to pay for the items that my sister needed, such as the food that could be administered through a feeding tube, that insurance would not cover. My family suffered financially, and they are thousands of dollars in debt. My sisters life is changed forever. Now she is twenty years old, and she has to stay in highschool until she is twenty-one years old. My sister was going to physical, occupational, and speach therapy, until the insurance stopped covering it. Alicia has difficulty reading, writing, talking, and finding the right words to come out. She often gets frustrated with herself, and she realizes that she cannot do a lot of the things that other people can do. My sister is in a wheelchair, although she is practicing everyday to get better. My sister has made a miraculous recovery, although she still has a long journey to go. I am asking for any help in order to help my family, and ensure a better future for my sister. Everything helps, even if it’s a one-dollar donation.Please spread the word and thank you all!
signal boosting this guys.
Self-taught Alaskan sculptor Lee Cross, known professionally as Wood Splitter Lee, creates incredible one of a kind fantasy creatures that are so remarkably lifelike they verge on creepy, which is just one of the things that makes them so awesome. All of Lee’s creatures are completely made by hand without the use of and patterns, molds or casts. Their bodies contain articulated skeletons wrapped with stuffing, making them very soft to handle and fully posable. They’re decorated with carefully hand-applied synthetic fur and paint. As you can see from these photos, some of Lee’s creatures are more fantastic in nature than others, but they’re all amazing to behold.
Lee’s creatures are available for purchase through weekly Auction Adoptions held on eBay.

Such dangerous beasts…
Pit bulls were originally bred to be nanny dogs.. that was even their title until people started breeding them to fight.
AWWW IT KISSED THE BUN
I miss my puppy :’(
Just a reminder:the natural diet of these birds is BONES. Not just bone marrow; actual bone shards. They pick up huge freaking bones from carcasses and drop them onto rocks until they get spiky pieces and then they swallow them. Their stomach acid dissolves bone.
look me in the eye and tell me that’s not a fucking dragon
And they aren’t naturally red like that. That’s self-applied makeup. They find the reddest earth they can to work into their feathers as a status symbol.
And they don’t scavenge other parts of carcases, just the bones. 85-90% of their diet is exclusively bone. Hence why it’s only a myth that these birds would just pick up whole lambs and carry them off. It’s not true, but in German they’re still called Lämmergeier as a result.
Let’s just talk about Wednesday’s perfect “not giving a fuck” attitude because it’s marvelous.
been feeling kind of paranoid lately
Take that time by yourself to get to know yourself and rediscover what makes you shine. Don’t surrender yourself to waiting, and don’t stay isolated for too long, because there’s a beautiful you the world is dying to meet.
comics that end sadly but wind up being replied to with love are what I live for
this actually helps me thing that that’s how i’ve been feeling lately…
"why dont you just give him a chance"
