Support continues to pour in for Maeve Field: Five-year-old hit by car loses arm and leg
JARVIS—Darcy Smuck really wanted to help support Maeve Field and her family. As a 10-year-old neighbour, Darcy wasn’t sure how she could help, but asked her grandma, Cheryl Smuck, if they might bake some cookies to sell and raise funds. Cheryl was delighted to help with the baking, and suggested they take the cookies to church to sell. They raised $581.45 at Wesley United Church in Jarvis to support Maeve’s recovery.

HAGERSVILLE—After being hit and pinned by an SUV on March 9, 2019 Maeve Field has proven to be a fighter.

An update from the family on April 9 said, “Her left arm and right leg suffered irreparable damage from the accident, and so that the rest of her body can heal, both limbs needed to be shortened … Maeve’s left eye was also hurt beyond repair, so she uses her strong, right eye to see. Maeve also endured multiple head and facial injuries for which surgeries are being carefully planned out by an amazing team of specialists.”

Maeve celebrated her fifth birthday while in the hospital and is “getting stronger every day. Everyone is so very proud of her effort and grit.”
