The ladies of Litchfield really are a family: The cast and crew of Netflix’s Orange Is the New Black has banded together to raise funds for series costar Michelle Hurst, who suffered serious injuries in a car accident in December.

Hurst — who plays Miss Claudette on Orange — “had major injuries so the doctors put her in a medically induced coma to avoid movement while they did multiple surgeries near her spine,” the team explains on a fundraising page for their comrade.
