Update: After surpassing $43,000 the fundraiser was temporarily suspended at the request of the family.
From the GoFundMe page:
“At the request of the family this fund is going to be discontinued temporarily. There will be other trust funds set up to support Denna. There will be more information available soon. Thank you for all the support so far.”
A family friend has started a GoFundMe page to help pay for medical expenses for Princeton alumnus Denna Laing.
Laing was injured during the Outdoor Women’s Classic on Dec. 31 at Gillette Stadium. Laing, who graduated in 2014 was stretchered off the ice and taken to Massachusetts General Hospital. There is no update on her condition.
In less than one day, over $22,000 has been raised toward a $50,000 goal. Several members of the women’s hockey community have donated.
Here is an excerpt the GoFundMe page:
“Those who’ve been blessed with the opportunity to get to know Denna, know that she is one of the most caring, hard-working, and selfless people on this planet. She always has and will continue to confront adversity with relentless grit that is unparalleled. Our hope is that, in this time where we know Denna would be the one stepping up for you, you find the little piece of Denna in your heart, to help her and her family through this recovery process.
The money donated to this fund will be allocated to Denna and her family to use towards funding her medical expenses, along with any other expenses that we can help her family with during this hard time. A donation of any size is greatly appreciated.”
