Norma, Carmen, Bryana seriously hurt in accident.

Hello Good People.  My cousins Richard and his wife Norma were driving back to North Carolina from a family vacation in California.  They had their 2 daughters Carmen (19yo) and Bryana (24yo) traveling with them, as well as their family dog Chico.  Richard fell asleep at the wheel while driving in Arizona and the car ended up going off the road, flipping approximately 5 times viciously throwing Norma, Carmen, and Bryana from the car, and causing severe and life-threatening injuries.  All 3 were air-lifted to 2 different Nevada hospitals due to their severe injuries.  Norma is currently in a coma on life-support, suffering from a fractured skull, broken neck and broken chest plate.  Carmen suffered a broken back, crushed spine, broken pelvis and fractured neck.  There is a major concern regarding whether she will be able to walk again.  Bryana suffered a broken collar bone and broken ribs.  All three will be facing some serious physical therapy and medical procedures as they recover from their injuries and start the long road to a full recovery.  Their 3 month old puppy Chico did not survive the accident.  Richard did not suffer any injuries that required hospitalization but if you can only imagine the grief this man has on his shoulders as his family lay hospitalized... 

The family is in dire need of everyone's prayers and some financial assistance.  There currently is no time-line for anyone's recovery or return to work, but with the list of injuries and their severity, the family as a whole is in for a long recovery process.  It is way too early to even think about getting everyone back home to North Carolina, but the prayers and funds will be needed for that process as well.  No amount given would be considered as too big or too little and every bit will help.  The funds received from this GoFundMe request will ONLY be used by the family to assist with their well-being and recovery from this accident.  

This is but one sad example of how someone's life can be changed in an instant.  If you can't find it in your heart or are currently in a situation where you are unable to donate, please pass this on to someone who may and help spread the word via your social media accounts. God bless this family, and may God bless you.  

Thank you for your consideration and time.
