The Zimmerman's Accident

Today we learned that an amazing family was involved in a tragic car accident. This is a family that constantly gives back to the community with no expected gratitude. Patience and her husband Scott were riding together when they were hit off I-30. Scott died on impact and Paitence is currently in a coma on life support fighting for her life. Thankfully their daughter Aurora was in school and not injured. Aurora is not aware of the situation at this time and is the light of her parents eyes.

Patience is in ICU in critical condition at Baylor Dallas. Please pray for this family and consider donating. Their medical expenses, living expenses, and funeral expenses will be abundant.

My name is Jennifer Oritz. I have known this family well for years. My daughter owns Emily's Smile Boxes that they are actively involved with. I have set Patience mother Beverly as the sole beneficiary of this campaign to help with expenses.  She will have the only direct access to the funds. Please email with any questions.

Any other campaigns or fundraisers will need to be coordinated with the family or on ones own time. Thank you!
