Celine Haga is a female fighter from Norway, and one of my best friends. In her last Jewels fight, her orbital bone got broken in the first round, pushing her eye back. She still finished the fight!  She couldn't  go back to Norway after because of the airpressure, so she had to do the surgery in Tokyo, and do some graft of a hipbone....it didn't go very well. Stayed in hospital for 2 weeks.

She is still seeing double, even weeks after her fight!


It costed ca 90 000 nok or 15, 000 US Dollars. She has no insurance in Norway cover any injuries related to martial art. (more details here)

Basically, I'm asking for help to pay her medical bill! If everybody gives ten dollars, it will make a huge difference in her life!
 

Thank you!

This is one of many reasons why this sport needs regulation everywhere. It is unconscionable that Jewels is not picking up the costs for an injury sustained in a fight.

Celine is very good people.

I saw she she finished her fight with a broken orbital bone. I didn't know about the complications. Seems I'm getting way out of touch.

Very sad to hear. Norwegian insurance is usually really good. Weird that it wouldn't cover at least some of the cost. Phone Post

She isnt in norway.

I agree with Kirik. How the fuck is the promotion not paying for injuries sustained in a fight? Phone Post

Donated what I could this week, will reach out to some of our contacts there to see if there is anything they can do out there too.

I ran a show back in 2010 in okinawa and had a japanese fighter break his jaw (thanks toby imada :P) and we paid for his medical costs (after his insurance coverage) which was a total of 362,800 yen, hoping Jewels paid out a something?

^^^ This...Are you sure that she has checked into all of her options regarding this? It shouldn't matter if she's in Norway or not. I dated a Norwegian girl for several years (here in the US) and she was set big time with her insurance and school benefits. From what I know about it it's hard to imagine that Norway wouldn't take care of it. Phone Post 3.0
