Once again, my family has been hit with tragedy. My sister, Therese Carnicella was training one of her driving students, when they were hit head on by a van traveling at a high rate of speed. The van crossed into their lane, slamming into the car, pushing them off a 100 foot cliff. They collided with a tree full force before coming to an abrupt halt. She was rushed to the trauma center at Los Robles Hospital, and is now being treated for a fractured lumbar (L5) and two broken ribs. She will have to wear a back brace for 4-6 weeks and won’t be able to work. She is the only source of income for her family and is so worried she won’t be able to pay her bills. Disability just does not pay enough, therefore once again, my family is asking all of you for help. We feel bad asking because everyone has been so good to us in the past; helping me when I broke my neck a year and a half ago, then again when we lost my brother Danny three months ago and needed help with his funeral expenses. If you could help once more and donate whatever you can to help my sister with her finances, so she can focus on getting better and not worry about paying her bills the entire Carnicella family would be extremely grateful. Thank you so much
