Ana Kessel is an interning artist at Insomniac Games who was recently involved in a car accident. She suffered severe injuries and is currently seeking financial help on gofundme.com.
That's just horrible that she lost both her legs! Boy I tell you. Donating** and keeping her and her fam in her prayers
it actually states leg, not legs... still, traumatic injury to go through. I have a friend who lost his leg in an accident and he struggled with it for years before finally accepting and finding a solid prosthetic he could use. Surely she'll be ok but it's a long road she faces. Sad Story.
holy hell, that's terrible. l donated what l could, hopefully she see's the humor one day in the fact every games developer and gamer always say they'd rather lose their legs then their arms..you don't need your feet to play games!
Unless for some reason you're really into Dance games... or racing sims.
What!? Seriously!? My cousin was in a hit & run 2 weeks ago outside his front door after returning home after 6 months abroad working in Iraq my aunty, his wife's first sight of him in 6 months was collecting/picking up his disfigured body lying on their doorstop. He was in intensive care for the first week & 4 days ago he has surgery to reconnect his jaw & reassemble his eye socket. Neither of which went well, does anybody want to donate to me/him?? No? Didn't think so, I wouldn't dare expect people to either. Especially earning the amount of money this dev probably earns. It's actually pretty disgusting if u ask me!!
So because your cousin didn't get any help this means no one has the right to? This is ridiculous.
No not at all, my point is that this women earns an absolute mint working as a AAA game developement studio yet she's asking others to pay for her. My cousin & my family our paying for it themselves I can understand if people are tight of money & unable to pay but im just saying it's a little cheeky if your in a position like hers although I admit i dont know the full details -- I was a bit rash with my comment - shes only an intern I dont know how much she gets paid. At the time it annoyed me but still there's something about it that just doesnt sit right with me. it seems because she worked for a certain company shes entitled to it, would the same people who donated to her also donate to me cousin, I dont think they would...
Sorry to hear about your cousin. I don`t know how it is in America but here interns don`t earn anything or very little. You could question why Insomniac doesn`t pay the bill, but I wouldn`t say it`s disgusting on the part of the person who got into the hit and run who is left with a large medical bill because of the way the health system works in America. Every person can setup a donation on the website to seek help.
I don't know if she got paid for interning at Insomniac but because she was just there over the summer, she wasn't eligible for any medical benefits, hence this campaign. My thoughts to her and her friends and families.
oh come now, there's no need to wish bad luck on someone else due to another's misfortune, sad as your story is however :< if you read the article...she's an intern, chances are she's not being paid and is fresh out of college/uni looking for work.
working in Iraq? I can imagine what type of work it was....
Its says she is an intern. That doesn't exactly mean she is a paid one. Get a grip dude.
this is a dupe http://n4g.com/news/1395652... For a momment I thought I was going crazy because I was like, "I already read this...".
The report button exists for a reason, you know.
Double story, but I'm ok with this one getting more exposure. We need to keep donating!
Such an awful tragedy. Lets hope the gaming community can help just a little!
She'll probably need more than 150k if its here in America.... I was in a roll over accident, luckily only internal bruising. My bills are over 25k and counting still..... That includes 3 or 4 doctors that have done absolutely nothing beyond giving me more medicine....
Its crazy the amount of money you guys pay for medical bills. In my country with 150k I could buy a house! OT best of luck to her.
here in america, 150k will buy you a very, very small house. but im in one of the most expensive home buying areas in the country. thanks to obama care though i can stay under my mothers health insurance until im 26. after that itll be i wanna say $800ish a month for health insurance.
I hope they find the perpetrator. Whomever was responsible should get their due. Gateway MT6706 2008
i thought i read a few days ago they got him. considering they say in the articles it was a male who was unlicensed so i imagine they got the culprit
I hope they catch the person,as I was a victim of hit & run 31 yrs ago & I have permanent damage in my left leg,hope this person pulls through mentally & have the best of care.
I don't know how it's like in NC, but is there not any forms of victim compensation from the state? Over here in CA, if you're involved in a hit-and-run and it's not your fault(obviously) then the state picks up the tab assuming you're uninsured. The article didn't mention whether the intern was insured or not. If so, what a shitty policy. This is why people buy insurance to begin with: in order to avoid financial burden/turmoil like this!
It's disgusting that people have to pay through the roof for medical bills for someone elses stupidity or even an accident in America. Does the government f*****g realise the size of these bills, they do realise that people on small earnings can't afford or do anything if they're in an accident this severe without financial aid from dozens of family or someone rich. On top of that, it's permanently disabling someone for life and then you're throwing a huge debt on their head. God this makes me angry. I wish this girl and anyone else who is burdened by such a poor medical system my best wishes. Makes me so grateful that I live in Australia.
