DUI victim's family medical bills

$6,235 of $5,000 goal

Created December 19, 2017
Last year, the Nelson family was hit by unspeakable tragedy when father and husband Chris was killed by an uninsured drunk driver. He had no life insurance and with the trial still making its way through court, there has been no financial relief as his widow was forced to quit her job to raise their 4 young children on her own. Their medical bills have continued to pile up leaving them without any money for Christmas.

Here is her Victim's Impact Statement. It is 26 mins long, but is very powerful and packed with details and feelings. It is very sad to hear the pain in her voice. His dad was also killed by a drunk driver when Chris was only a young boy.
A wife and a mom's painful statement :(

Today the drunk driver that killed Chris was sentenced to just 5 years in prison. How is it possible that killing someone is regarded as such a light crime in this case? So my sister's family continues to bear the emotional, physical, and financial strain. They have received NO money from the guilty parties and there doesn't seem to be any forthcoming. Thank you to anyone and everyone that is able to contribute. It is appreciated and needed more than you know. If you can't donate, please pray for them that they might find peace in the days ahead.
His father was killed by DUI driver too!
His kids meant everything to him.
His son was only 18 months when he died.
