Paige Raque Home for Thanksgiving

Ever since Penn State cheerleader Paige Raque was injured in a 5-story fall from a Calder Commons apartment just over a month ago, the Penn State community has rallied behind her, offering words of encouragement and selling bracelets for the Paige Raque Recovery Fund. At first, the situation looked grim, but now Paige is making a steady recovery and has started rehab at her home in Louisville, Kentucky.

Her brother, Parker Raque, has been keeping followers up to date on Paige’s condition. He recently tweeted this:

 

 

Paige had previously spent the two weeks after the injury at Altoona Hospital in the intensive care unit, unresponsive. She still has a long road to recovery, but the progress has been remarkable by all accounts.

“It was great when she became cognizant of what was going on,” family spokesman Randy Jepson said to the Centre Daily Times. “It’s been steady progress since. To look back about a month ago — we’re just overjoyed at the progress she’s made and thankful for everyone’s prayers.”

Most recently, Penn State cheerleaders wore yellow bows on Saturday in honor of their teammate (Photo credit to Karisa Maxwell).

We will continue to #PrayforPaige while she embarks on her recovery.
