Fundraiser for Plane Crash Survivor Kechi Okwuchi is this Saturday

In December 2005, about 60 Loyola Jesuit College students lost their lives in the Sosoliso Plane Crash. Kechi Okwuchi was the only student and one of two people the other being Pastor Bimbo Odukoya (Died the following day) who survived the plane crash. Since then, she has undergone about 75 surgeries.

But Kechi still needs help. She is scheduled to begin facial reconstructive surgeries in Boston this summer.
A fundraiser is being put up by two of her best friends this saturday to help raise money for her surgeries below a statement from them:
“A devastating plane crash, over 60% intensive burns, up to five weeks in medically-induced coma and over 75 surgeries to date have not hampered the spirit of our friend, Kechi Okwuchi. She may have been terribly disfigured by the accident but Kechi’s determination and hope to achieve her dreams regardless, inspire us each day. We would like to share her story so that it may inspire you too.”

You are cordially invited to a Fashion Show Dinner Fundraiser, themed, A New Dawn, which would be held on the 30th of July, 2011, in honor of and for the purpose of raising funds for surgeries for our friend and heroine, Kechi Okwuchi.

"Kechi underwent multiple surgeries in South Africa. After waking up from her coma, she had to relearn to do everything again. She learned to sit, she learned to stand, she learned to walk and use her limbs. Needless to say, this process was painful. But one thing she never needed to learn was how to smile again"
