Former “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star Claudia Jordan launched a GoFundMe for her close friend, reality star Melyssa Ford who was severely injured from a car accident.
In late June, Ford was driving on a California highway in her SUV when an 18-wheeler cut her off, causing her vehicle to flip three times and landing upside down. According to Page Six, Ford suffered from a fractured skull, a concussion, bleeding on the brain as well as a large 10-inch open wound.
Jordan launched the GoFundMe page on July 6 with a goal of reaching $100,000. On the page, the talk show host stated, “FYI: Melyssa and I are good friends and I set this up because so many people wanted to help and there are so many expenses coming at her I wanted to make it where there was one less thing she had to worry about-so she could just focus on healing.
“Melyssa gets 100% of the funds-whatever we raise-it’s all hers to handle all the medical bills & physical therapy she will surely need. Thank you so much for stopping by this page and for caring. This brings tears to my eyes seeing the outpouring of love and support. Thank you again.”
After the horrific accident, Jordan shared an image of Ford on the ground receiving aid. “I have to do this to let folks know the seriousness of @melyssaford‘s accident (I got her permission first) but here it is. She was involved in a horrific accident that could have easily taken her life. It’s actually a miracle she survived. She’s injured FOR REAL. She doesn’t even remember this as she has a huge gash in her head and blood on the brain. This was sent to me by a Good Samaritan that didn’t know who he was helping but once he saw the story online he contacted me knowing we’re friends and he was following me.”
She continued, ” If anyone was a witness to this accident please inbox me any information you may have. As you can imagine Melyssa doesn’t remember much so I’m hoping witnesses will come forward and assist in putting the pieces back together. She was hit by an 18 wheeler.”
