Help Ashley & Rachael Succeed

My name is Terry Brake.  I am a single father of two girls, Ashley and Rachael.  On September 10, 2005 our lives changed.  We were in a serious motor vehicle accident.  Ashley had to learn how to walk and talk all over again.  She had to attend a Rotary School for speech therapy and has a serious acquired brain injury.  She has had a brain spec showing global whole hemisphere injury.  The diagnosis is not good.  Rachael also suffered serious injuries including her left foot, leg and hip and a mild acquired brain injury.  Rachael had to learn how to walk again and required a leg brace and orthotics .  Both girls still require medical and/or rehabilitation treatment to this day and will need to continue in the future.  I too suffered injuries and am no longer able to work and I used my payout from the insurance company to pay all of my kids' medical/rehabilitation expenses.  Intact Insurance who is responsible to pay for my girls has denied and cut off my kids' benefits approximately 5 years ago.  Ashley's future care costs are approximately $6200.00 per month and Rachael's future care costs are approximately $4000.00 per month.  I have exhausted all of my life savings and my children require extensive long term care.  Intact Insurance has offered $25000 for each girl knowing that I am financially struggling and putting my daughters' long term future at risk.  With your donations Ashley and Rachael will have the opportunity to receive the proper treatment that they need while I continue to fight the insurance company.  It has been a long 13 year battle with no end in sight.
