UNION, Ky. - Friends, family and classmates of Ryle High School senior Abby Marsh met in front of the school Tuesday night to pray for her recovery.
Marsh was injured in a car accident two weeks ago and temporarily paralyzed from the waist down.
She recently had surgery, and the Union, Ky. community is coming together to raise money to cover her medical expenses.
Friends say her spirits have remained high throughout her ordeal. Abby's friend, Paige Barrett, said, "We went and saw her and she was just being her normal jokester self. Making jokes and making silly comments and she's still pretty happy and it's just really awesome to see how high her spirits are and how she's not letting this bring her down."
Another fundraiser for Abby will be held at the Skyline restaurant on U.S. 42 in Union next Monday.
For more information on upcoming events, Abby's friends have set up a Facebook page .
