However, in her real life, the actress is recovering from the unthinkable. In September, trying to escape from an intruder who was breaking into her home, she was forced out of a high second story window onto concrete to save her life.
In the aftermath of her fall, she completely shattered both of her heels, fractured the T12 vertebrae of her spine, and broke both of her hands. She was left with casts on every limb.
As she explains on her gofundme page, she needs your help. "After a long hospital stay, I am faced with being wheelchair-bound and heal for 4-6 months before I get back on my feet again, and that's just where the physical rehabilitation and real work begins for me.
For an uncertain amount of time, I won't be able to work. I require assistance 24 hours a day. the funds will pay for rent, food and bills for myself and my caretaker for the next 6 months.
The medical bills are mounting beyond comprehension, my bank account is tapped and I'm desperate. Since I can't afford to hire a nurse and have no family to take care of me. Cameron McHarg decided to make the sacrifice to leave his work and life behind to care for me 24/7. I'm unable to care for myself. I'm stuck in my bed. I can't accomplish the simplest of tasks on my own.
Your donation will allow me to focus on healing in my home surrounded by my animals without the fear of loosing my home, without worrying of ending up in a nursing home. Any amount will be deeply appreciated. No donation is too small."
