In September of 2017, while on her way to photograph the solar eclipse in Oregon, Gingko Ma was in a terrible accident. The RV she had been in took an unexpected turn off the road and rolled a before crashing into a tree. The result was a major concussion and the entire left side of her body being smashed. She underwent multiple surgeries including a hip replacement, skin graphing, and the wrapping a metal coil around her split femur. I became her aide every Tuesday and at her request, I documented her painful recovery and remarkable transformation.
