Sessler Family Support Team

This beautiful young woman, Amber Sessler (one of my daughters of another mother), was seriously injured in an auto accident on Saturday.  She was the driver and lost her best friend in the crash.  They were driving home from putting up her grandmother's Christmas lights and were hit by a speeding vehicle on a country road in Illinois that ran a stop sign.  She has suffered serious injuries that are likely to take months and months to recover from.   Amber's family lives over an hour away from the hospital and needs assistance paying for all of the incidental expenses that will add up over time to enable them to be close to their daughter. Her mom and I have been friends for decades.  I'm asking, on her behalf, for your help.  No gift is too small for this family and everything that is contributed will greatly assist them in dealing with the tragedy that all of us who are parents dread.  They got that call from a police officer telling them there had been an accident involving their daughter and that the had to come to the hospital now.  Please do what you can to help.  No gift is too small.  Thank you.
