Nikki Nova in Injured

Yesterday, on location shooting, Nikki Nova was involved in a serious accident. She was on a horse and the horse got spooked. Nikki fell off the back of the horse and then the horse fell back on her head. She sustained a number of serious injuries.
She has a fractured skull and has 3 sections of her brain that are bleeding. She is currently in the ICU and is stabilized for now. She is getting CT Scans every 4 hours or so to check her progress so they can determine if and/or when they would have to go in and operate.
Right now first of all, we really need the emotional support of her friends and all the people that know her and have worked with her over the years.
On a second note, unfortunately, Nikki does not have medical insurance at this time and she is really going to need some help. There will be bills from the life flight helicopter to Er to operations to rehab. I have talked to her mom and as much as its hard to talk about money at a time like this, it is a part of the situation that has to be dealt with.
We have setup a Pay Pal account for people to make donations to help Nikki with her medical bills and recovery. Please send all donations through PayPal to the Webmaster@NikkiNova.com and we can make arrangements.
If anyone needs to reach me, I will not be in a front of a computer all day as I'm sitting in the ICU with her. My cell phone will not be working either. As most of you know, I run her site and lived with her for a few years. She is one of my best friends and more so family. I'm very scared for her right now and my head is spinning. So if you call me and I don't get back to you right away, please just be patient with me and I'll get back to you as soon as I can.
I know that there are a lot of people that love Nikki and a lot of people that have worked with her over the years. Right now, I ask that all of you please say a prayer for her, send out some positive energy, and if you can, please make any kind of donation so that she can get all the proper medical care she deserves.
