What happened to Caitlin Jensen and how did she end up paralyzed? GoFundMe raises over $60,000
After receiving chiropractic care on June 16, 2022, Georgia Southern University alumna Caitlin Jensen, 28, was left paralyzed. Jensen’s arteries were reportedly severed during chiropractic adjustments, causing her to be paralyzed.
A GoFundMe page was created to raise money for medical expenses by Caitlyn Jensen
A GoFundMe campaign set up to raise money for Jensen’s medical costs has already surpassed its fundraising goal of $61,000. More than 1,200 donations have been sent to the page by supporters of the 28-year-old, both known and unknown. Recent reports from the fundraiser claim that Jensen can only communicate by moving his eyes. Although the rest of his body is completely paralyzed, he can wiggle his toes.
According to the June 22 GoFundMe page that Linda Foster created
Caitlin Jensen “graduated from Georgia Southern University this May with a degree in Chemistry and Biology,” according to the GoFundMe page Linda Foster created on June 22. In Savannah, Georgia’s Memorial Hospital, the neurosurgical ICU, is currently located there. Jensen is described by Foster as follows. But the 28-year-old suffered a stroke, as previously revealed. Caitlin Jensen had “no pulse for over 10 minutes, after which she was resuscitated,” according to the fundraiser’s page.
He has suffered a catastrophic brain injury and is in critical condition. Currently conscious, Caitlin can respond to vocal commands from her by wiggling the toes of her left foot and blinking her eyes. However, due to her damage, the rest of her body is paralyzed. Caitin will likely need time to recover and she will want financial assistance to get her through this ordeal.
According to a recent update from fundraiser coordinator Linda Foster, Jensen experienced significant pain on Wednesday, July 13, in his neck and back of the brain. Foster added more information about Caring Bridge: “(Jensen) had a rough day with lung mucus buildup interfering with his tracheal tube.” The report also stated that Caitlin Jensen’s medical tests had been delayed because the facility’s staff was overloaded with multiple trauma cases. Jensen should recover quickly with proper therapy and rehabilitation.
