Last October, 25-year-old Nicole Panos and her family suffered a tragic accident at Kuleni Game Park in native South Africa. As they returned from a relaxing morning in the sun, a giraffe she said was trying to protect her cubs suddenly ran towards them at high speed, giving her only seconds to save her son and daughter from danger. .
While four-year-old Kayden survived after suffering skull fractures, one-year-old Kaia died in her mother’s arms following a traumatic brain injury. “From that point on, I was in survival mode, and I probably will be for the rest of my life,” she says.
Nicole, who was paralyzed from the waist down, also spoke of the hardships she and her son faced afterwards. After spending more than three weeks in hospital and 16 days in intensive care with multiple rib fractures and damage to internal organs, she now faces multiple operations and a ‘long and difficult road to recovery’. .
Kayden, meanwhile, needs constant supervision due to his skull fractures, and the family is in “an urgent need of additional funds to cover all medical expenses”. This is why a page GoFundMe was created to help the family to assume the costs related to their rehabilitation.
