POLK COUNTY, Fla - Family of Megan Kimbrough are now selling t-shirts and bracelets to help raise money to pay the 26-year-old's mounting medical bills.
Kimbrough was burned alive on August 3. She has remained in the burn unit at Tampa General since. With burns over 80 percent of her body, Megan has already undergone seven surgeries to not only clean her wounds but to graft donor skin over them.
Police say Kimbrough's husband Joshua doused her in gasoline and then lit her on fire as she sat in a recliner inside their Lakeland home.
Megan ran out of the home and neighbors threw blankets on her to put out the flames.
At first, doctors did not think Megan would survive. Every day is a touch and go.
"It seems that Megan decided to make sure her medical staff was paying close attention to her this morning," wrote Teddy Lawhorn, Megan's father. "They were changing her bandages when her blood pressure dropped dangerously low, to 60/30. That’s not a typo. It was 60/30."
Megan is now receiving emergency Medicaid. While that will cover most of her treatments and surgeries, it will not cover future needs.
In the days following the tragedy, Megan's family created the Facebook page, 'Pray for Megan .' More than 35,000 people have liked her page and well wishes are pouring in from around the world.
"Megan, you will be in my prayers and God bless you," wrote Janice Azam on Thursday morning.
Knowing Megan faces financial struggles, her family us selling "Pray for Megan" t-shirts and bracelets. The t-shirts cost $20. "Pray for Megan" bracelets cost $1 and also include the message "stop domestic violence."
To order a shirt or bracelet, an email needs to be sent to email@example.com. Once there, more instructions will be given for payment, etc.
