Lost and Found, Story of Hope for Emilie.

I wanted to post this story sooner when I heard the tragic tale of a young art student, Emilie Gossiaux, hit by a semi truck on her bicycle and left for dead at Bellevue Hospital. Instead of this being another tale of feeling helpless at the fate of a victim of reckless driving, this is as bitter sweet story of hope. Emilie’s family, primarily her boyfriend, Alan Lundgard, never gave up on her and averted a possible course of an inactive nursing home to NYU’s innovative Rusk Rehabilitation Center, where Emilie is getting top-notch treatment.

WNYC’s Radiolab did a show about this which aired at the end of January, 2011.

Listen here.

There is a website for Emilie where you can find out more and donate to help Emilie.
