Megan, Jeremy, Kayleigh, Addison, and Jeremiah were traveling north from Richmond to visit their Maryland based relatives. Less than 30 minutes into their drive, a reckless driver heading in their opposite direction lost control of his vehicle, crossed the median, and struck the Harris family's vehicle. Their vehicle flipped several times and their oldest daughter was ejected from the vehicle.
All five were rushed to VCU hospital. The most serious of injuries fell upon the oldest daughter, Kayleigh. She's undergone several hours of surgery thus far, and is expected to have many more surgeries. In addition to many broken bones, she has sustained severe injury to her spine resulting in paralysis. There's much physical, occupational and mental health therapy ahead, in addition to the process of retrofitting their home to accommodate their circumstances. The costs will be tremendous.
The Harris family are a caring and loving Christian family, in need of a lot of help. The road ahead for them is most certainly a long one, and likely full of many unforeseen hurdles. As such, I'm asking for any support you can provide so this family can start to face the costs of medical bills, basic living expenses, and household adjustments.
As a point of reference, I am Megan and Jeremy’s brother-in-law.
