As a Squamish woman sits in a hospital bed recovering from a Nov. 8 car accident, an online fundraising campaign for her that was started by fellow real estate agents has quickly gained steam.
In one day, the Go Fund Me campaign for Squamish realtor Nicole Musgrave has raised $17,390 of its $30,000 goal.
Musgrave and a friend were passengers in a taxi last week when her side of the vehicle was struck, resulting in her suffering a broken back, pelvis, hip, collar bone, ribs and a punctured lung, according to the "Reaching A Goal for Nicole" page set up by Squamish real estate agents, Marianne Wilson, Alyssa Wilson, Nancy Hamilton and Michelle Winslow.
"Nicole is a very generous and compassionate person who has helped many people through difficult times. Let's gather our resources and show our support to help her," reads the page.
Winslow calls Musgrave one of the kindest people she knows.
"She is always there for others and is so generous to everyone she meets," Winslow told The Chief.
"She is not the type of person who would ask for help, but she has a long road ahead of her and is going to need it. We are trying to help her in any way we can."
