On the morning December 8, 2014, 5-year-old Bella Alexis Oduor of Baltimore, MD, USA sustained a spinal cord injury and traumatic brain injury as a result of a serious motor vehicle accident on her way to school.
She also went into cardiac arrest for 8-10 minutes on the hospital trauma bay which causes a hypoxic-ischemic brain injury. She received a successful spinal fusion on c1-c2 vertebrae and some treatment on her remaining bruised vertebrae (c-5, c6, c7, T1).
The family remained optimistic despite weekly meetings with the team of doctors who maintained that she had “no soul and would never walk, talk, swallow, eat or breathe again on her own”. They are currently fighting for her life.
Bella’s mom was also injured in the accident, requiring 6 weeks total of inpatient hospitalization, multiple surgeries and extensive rehabilitation. Her 2-year old sister was also in the vehicle but bared no physical injuries at the scene.
There will be prayers and fund raising in aid of Bella on May 16, 2015 to be held At St Andrews I.C.C.A.E.Church on 16th May 2015 starting 3:00pm. St Andrews I.C.C.A.E.Church is located at 6515 Loch Raven Blvd, Parkville MD, 21239.
