Shoulder icepack for Kristiona who was injured at work

Posted May 31, 2023
Kristiona was recently involved in an accident while working on the playground where she teaches young children. She lost balance, colliding head first into a large metal pole. The child she was holding was relatively uninjured and Kristiona ended up taking the brunt of the injuries. She will be taking up to a three week absence from work while her injury heals. Having this shoulder icepack will help her stay comfortable during recovery so she can get back to what she loves, teaching.

Kristiona is 28 years old and lives in CO

Originally, Kristiona was placed in Foster Care at the age of two where she was adopted, only to again be bounced around from foster home to foster home at the age of nine. She was adopted and then returned to foster care where she aged out. Kristiona became independent and started her college journey and has been successful at it despite everyday obstacles and medical issues. Kristiona has graduated from CMU with her Bachelor's degree and is looking at continuing her education to work with children. She currently works with an early head start preschool as a teacher and enjoys every moment. Kristiona is committed to breaking a generational cycle of abuse and lack of education. Her ultimate goal is to own and run a summer camp for children in foster care, that is not only fun, but can also provide them with therapeutic and mentoring supports.
