On top of dealing with the tragedy of Sarah Burke’s death, the trailblazing skier’s family has to pay off a $550,000 medical bill for her care in the hospital. Her family has set up a fundraising website to help with the huge costs, and by noon ET had received roughly $90,000 in donations—16 percent of the total money needed. The 29-year-old freestyle pioneer and Winter X Games gold medalist died Thursday after an accident at the Park City Mountain Resort in Utah sent her into cardiac arrest for a week. It’s unclear whether Burke’s health insurance covered extreme sports.
