On April 14, 2017, my husband brought me my first car, and I was so filled with joy and excitement. Sadly, on June 4, 2017my joy came to an end when my back tire exploded on interstate 64 in Newport News, Va. I lost control of the vehicle and we began to flip repeatedly. My mother and husband were thrown from the car out onto the highway. My mother passed away and my husband was rushed to Sentara Norfolk General Hospital on a helicopter. He is in critical condition. In just one short week he has had to have several surgeries to save his life a few are: a procedure to stop internal bleeding, a plate inserted in in his neck to support a break, his right leg amputated, and more to follow. He can’t feel anything from the waist down right now. Myself, my daughter, sister in law, and 2-year-old nephew are injured as well.
Brandon (my husband) has always been a very strong person. He really loved being a business man and was very proud that he supported our family as an entrepreneur. I know that with the right help he can still be anything he wants to be. I refuse to let this set back kill our family spirit. However, with our sole provider out of commission the rode ahead is very difficult. The financial burden of medical expenses, relocating to his treatment area, and starting over has been overwhelming.
I’m prepared to fight and win this battle for our family, and I'm reaching out to any and everyone to help ease the burden. Please help me help our family.
