A fundraiser is planned for a Cottonwood Falls woman as she continues to recover from a devastating car accident.

Emily Horst, 41, suffered serious and life-changing injuries as the result of a head-on collision on US Highway 50 near Road C on April 27. Horst was transferred to the University of Kansas Medical Center, where she has undergone a number of surgeries.

“Emily has been in the surgical ICU at KU Medical Center since Saturday night after the accident,” Nancy Horst, Emily’s mother said. “Her injuries are significant and her recovery and rehab will take time. “We don’t really know how long yet.”

St. Anthony’s Catholic Church in Strong City will hold a biscuits and gravy benefit breakfast from 7 – 11 am Sunday, June 2 — Rodeo Sunday — at St. Anthony Hall, to help raise money toward Emily’s medical costs. A donation gets you a biscuits and gravy breakfast with fresh fruit, cinnamon twists, coffee and juice. All proceeds will go to Horst.

Deliveries can be ordered by calling or texting 620-366-1211.

Nancy Horst said KUMC’s trauma team has provided “excellent care” for her daughter the last two weeks, and Emily continues to improve.

“We have a wonderful support system for her, her 9-year-old son and for us,” Horst said. “We have so much community support it is impossible to name everyone. “Emily is such a fighter and she is defying the odds with her recovery.”

She said she was appreciative of the upcoming fundraiser.

“We appreciate St Anthony’s members for organizing the fundraiser for Emily and her son,” Horst said. “Their needs will be great with the journey ahead.”
