This is my cousin Emily, she is a 16 year-old Sophomore at American Fork High School. Emily is a light to all that she comes in contact with; whether it is with her family, passing someone in the hall at school, cheering on Friday nights, or with friends on the weekend. Emily is full of life.
On Friday, April 22nd, while riding as a passenger in a side-by-side, Emily was involved in a roll-over accident where her neck was broken in several places, causing paralysis from the shoulders down.
This injury is life-altering for Emily and her family. It will require extensive rehabilitation and treatment. After several weeks at Utah Valley Hospital, Emily will be transferred to an out-of-state specialty rehab center for those with spinal cord injuries.
Emily and her family would be the last to ask for assistance and the first to give. These funds will go directly to Emily and her family to help ease the financial burden for them as they navigate this trying time.
“WE LOVE EMILY, SAY IT BACK.”
