Medical Expenses for Jakob

On October 4th 2018 Brianna, Jakob, & their cousin were leaving band practice and heading to the homecoming bonfire where they were in an accident. Their cousin was able to escape the vehicle and call for help... Tragically Brianna (18) passed away a short time after being airlifted to the hospital due to her injuries in Safford, Az.  She was a beautiful, bright, talented, and witty young girl with the world at her feet. She graduated last year from Safford Highschool with honors. She could play any instrument she picked up and had a passion for it. She was attending  college classes at Eastern Arizona College when her life was tragically cut short.  Jakob (15) was also airlifted to Banner Hospital in Tucson, Az where he is still in the Intensive care unit.  He suffered multiple injuries and was on a ventilator for 4 days. He has already has one surgery on his leg, and will undergo more surgery's to repair broken bones in his face. They also just found out Monday evening that he will permanently be blind in one eye. He is improving daily, but has a long road to recovery ahead of him. He is a student at Safford Highschool and plays the trumpet in the marching band.  This is a devastating  loss for this family and community. As you can imagine the cost they are incurring during this will be astronomical  They did not have life insurance for Brianna and although they do have medical insurance they will not pay for all of the costs they will incur.  Anyone that is looking for ways to help Cheryl out during this time here's how! You can also make donations to Vining Funeral Home in Safford, Az.  Cheryl and the Family would like to thank each of you for you prayers, thoughts, and everything that yall have done for her and her family during this time.  Please continue to pray for Jake and a speedy recovery for him, and also for Cheryl,  Christian, and the rest of the family and friends who will need them daily in the days ahead.
