Help for former dancer Lisa LeAnn Dalton requested

Thyrsa Da Rosa Hartel, wife of Austin Hartel of the Hartel Dance Group (Oklahoma), has sent us the following notice:

Lisa LeAnn Dalton needs your help right now.

She was one of the most powerful and engaging dancers on stage, dancing with passion, precision, dedication, power and beauty for over 20 years. She has recently suffered and catastrophic injury and can use your help, love prayers and support at this time.

As many of you know, Lisa Dalton is one if the strongest women that was ever
born. She was an amazing dancer, dancing for Martha Clarke, Mark Dendy "Dendydance", Pilobolus, Elizabeth Streb, Richard Move, Julie Taymor, and had her own company with Austin Hartel for years creating and dancing the most beautiful dances, as well as co-producing the Lisa LeAnn & Terry Dean put on a DANCESHOW series in NYC for years. Well, she retired and went back to Texas to be close to her family and work with horses. She was National Rookie of the Year in 2003 for Bareback Bronc Riding, and kept getting better and better at it, winning competition after competition.

On October 13th, Lisa broke her neck in a riding accident in Denver, CO. She
was in the hospital in Denver for the first week. She was paralyzed from the neck down for most of the days in Denver, but slowly started to regain some minimal movement of her arms from the shoulder. After that week she was transfered to the Baylor Rehab Facility in Dallas. She is improving a little every day but this is going to take a lot of patience a energy. She is able to shuffle her feet with the use of a walker, but really can not use the right side of her body
at this time. Her right leg and hand are not responding much and the coordination is very off.
