On June 30th, 2019, Dana Barrett, born and raised in East Quogue, NY, suffered a severe spinal injury in a tragic pool accident. After being airlifted to Stony Brook University Hospital it was determined she suffered a C2 fracture, resulting in paralysis from the neck down and the inability to breathe on her own. Surgery has recently been performed to repair the fracture but her spinal cord has been permanently damaged. The doctors have said there is still hope but she will need extensive rehabilitation. The rehabilitation is going to be a considerable financial burden, as early estimations that have been given to her family are thousands of dollars per day. The road to recovery will take years.
The Dana Barrett Volleyball Tournament will be run in partnership with East End Volleyball League at Tiana Beach in Hampton Bays, NY. The tournament will be held from 10am – 5pm on Sunday September 8th 2019. We are collecting raffle donations however we ask all financial donations be made directly to Danas go fund me page; www.gofundme.com/danabarrettstrong.
