Olivia 9 lives through a horrific crash loses dad

#Oliviashope...On April 1 , 2019 at around 8:30pm about 3 km before For Creek, Alberta, my 1st cousin my best friend since we were kids his name was Leon. On Monday night they were on their way home from Visiting his mom for the weekend and Olivia had school the next day as they both lived in Edmonton as well. At 11:00pm that night two police officers came to Olivia’s moms door and was told their was a car Accident and that my Cousin Leon had Died but the girl in the Car Olivia was ok at the Fox Creek Hospital and that’s all they told her. She called me right after and said auntie you need to sit down and said are you sitting and I thought not again cause she did this to me with her brother :( then she told me Leon had died and I fell to my hands and knees screaming and I scared the hole house cause I didn’t move just kept say no no no I love him noooo and then I heard her say Olivia and then I said omg my niece and she said liv lived auntie but I have to go get her and we have to leave now but I still don’t drive cause of my seizure I had so I couldn’t lucky her bf driver her. I was so worried waiting for that call thinking what if they didn’t tell her the truth and I’m not their for her to support her I was so stressed out but when she got their Olivia was ok she only had a seat belt bruise and when they were talking to the RCMP the man started tearing up really bad and said no one should have lived in that car and that little girl is a miracle! 

They were told the car rolled 3 times at a high speed and a family was behind them and stopped and called 911 and they didn’t think anyone lived in their and to their shock they watch the passengers door open and out comes this little girl and the women ran to her and took her to her truck and they waited for help. Olivia was screaming for her dad to come out that way just hearting breaking she loved him so much and she was his world!! This is a great loss to my family and Leon and my nieces Olivia mom they were not together they co - parented and it was 2 weeks and 2 weeks..now Olivia mom cried to me Auntie what I’m I gonna do and I said don’t worry auntie will help you and I promised Leon always if anything ever happened I’d help make sure a Olivia would have what she needs but we never expect this to happen this fast and when I have 2 teenagers and 4 dogs to look after and I am also single this is gonna be hard.. so this fundraiser was an idea I thought of .. when I talked to Olivia she told me when the car stopped moving I remembered a show me and grandma watched so I took a deep breath and took off my seatbelt and unlocked the door and opened it and I stood back yelling for daddy to come out my way :( .. how heartbreaking what a brave little girl!! Half of the money that we make will go into a trust fund for her for university..she is now Orphaned :(
