Always “the first to help others,” a woman who crashed her motorcycle on the border of Oakville and Mississauga last Saturday (Sept. 17) now needs help herself.

A GoFundMe account has been created to help a woman named Blue who suffered critical injuries in the single-vehicle crash that occurred on eastbound Highway 403 between Dundas St. and Winston Churchill Blvd.

Blue was on her way to the Boots on the Ground charity motorcycle ride when she lost control of her bike, says Carole Cadotte who organized the fundraiser.

“She is in critical condition with over 70 per cent of the bones in her body fractured,” she said on the GoFundMe page. “In the coming weeks, she will undergo several operations to repair the damage.

“Both of her ankles are shattered, her left shin and knee are badly broken, her entire left rib cage is broken, left collar bone is cracked, bones in her back (L1 to L4) are chipped, both wrists are broken and the list goes on.”

People who have met Blue always remember her “fun, bubbly and generous spirit.” Someone who helps others without hesitation or judgment.

A woman of faith with the heart of a true humanitarian.

“She sees the value in helping any way she can – and she does so without hesitation,” it said the GoFundMe page. “She takes the time to talk to anyone who is struggling and shares from the heart to help encourage others.

“She is fiercely independent and very stubborn, so her family and friends are asking for your support to help her get back on her feet.”

Family is important to Blue and she loves spending time with them.

“Whether she is hanging out, watching movies or playing video games with her ‘ninjas,’ sharing a meal or helping with renovations, Blue is happiest when she is with her family,” Cadotte said on the page.

“When she talks about her family, her heart shines so bright she sparkles.”

Her motorcycle family is also important to Blue. She often bids and buys prizes at charity events and will even donate the prize back to raise even more money from the charity.

Most weekends she can be found at a charity ride to support causes that are important to her.

“It has been said that Blue is a shining light in the southern Ontario motorcycle community and we won’t find a bigger heart on two wheels,” it said on the page. “If you know her, you know this to be true.”

Donations from the fundraiser will go to help Blue with basic living expenses as she won’t be able to work for a while, as well as costs associated with extensive rehabilitation and/or mobility devices.

It will also go toward temporary housing that is wheelchair accessible and in-home support.

“Blue needs our help,” the message on the pages wrapped up. “Let’s show her what can happen when people come together to help.”
