Utah Mom Injured in a Terrible Bike accident!! Please read


Mother of 8, Melanie Skoy Coyle, was in the Little Red bike ride on June 2nd and took a serious blow to her head. She was transported by ambulance where it was discovered that her head had filled with blood and put too much pressure on her brain. That resulted in an emergency surgery where they drilled a hold through her head and drained the blood.
Because of the pressure the blood put on her brain, she is slowly trying to regain her memory and basic skills. Doctors don’t know how long all of this will take for her to be fully restored and she is uninsured.
The family has set up an account at America First Credit Union under Melanie Skoy Coyle. Donations can be made by going into a local branch; Credit Union Members can call 800-999-3961 and speak with a rep to make a transfer; or Mail Checks or pay through your bank’s online bill-pay using this address:

Her sister was able to have a semi-conversation with her and she wanted to leave the hospital because she didn’t have the money!! Her 8 children are desperate for their mom to come back home, but healthy!! The family is very grateful for all the prayers and support.

    Injured during the 2012 Little Red Riding Hood, Melanie (Stout) Coyle, fitness enthusiast and loving mother, suffered a traumatic brain injury and is unable to work for a year. She is the primary provider for her family of 6 children (Dallin Stout, Sam Stout, Brady Stout, Jackson Stout, Sydney Stout, and Sophie Coyle). As her friends we are having a fundraiser to help her provide for her family while she is recovering.
