Stephanie Decker Backs Relief Fund For Fellow Tornado Survivors

Ninety patients One hundred twenty minutes

Shortly after the tornadoes that struck the region on March 2, 2012, survivors found their way to University of Louisville Hospital’s Trauma Center.  Over the next two hours, the entire hospital pitched in to handle the rapid influx of patients, treating up to 90 at one time.

But helping survivors get back to life is a much longer process.  That is why University of Louisville Hospital is announcing the 90120 Tornado Relief Fund (Ninety patients One hundred twenty minutes) to benefit survivors of the tornado.

Stephanie Decker was among those 90 who came to University of Louisville Hospital needing treatment that day.  This mother of two sacrificed her legs to save her children by throwing herself on top of them when the tornado demolished their home. She has received an outpouring of support from all over the world.

“I have been blessed by the health of my children, my family and my resources,” she says. “I know there are many others who were also injured that had little and have nothing now.  This fund will help them.”
