Ella suffered a terrifying accident when she was thrown off a horse in July 2015. The horse rolled on top of her, causing multiple skull fractures and swelling in the brain. Ella was rushed to SickKids and received plastic and neuro surgery to repair the damage she had sustained. She was discharged after only eight days at SickKids and is still monitored by her doctors. Today, she is continuing with her recovery, and has made it her mission to fundraise for SickKids as a thank you for saving her life.
