Mom of Five Tragic Accident

In the early hours of the morning today 12/8/17 a dear friend of mine Tommieka Daniel and her 4 boys accompanied by a fellow football mom and her son were traveling back home from Pop Warners National football championship in Disney when they were in a horrible accident. The other mother was operating Tommieka's truck at the time of the accident in which they struck a tree. The accident resulted in the passing of the female driver and hospitalization for 2 of the boys traveling passenger. The young boy of the deceased mom has been discharged and is now back home in Rhode Island with his family.  My friend remains in South carolina where she has no one and little funds. Her oldest son Bruce sustained severe injuries in which he needed multiple surgeries to his legs as well as his face. He is currently in alot of pain and a severe depressive state. (No 11 year old should have to ask their mother "Mommy am I going to die")
Tommieka remains stranded in South Carolina with 4 boys to care for, no vehicle and little money. Asking anyone that is finacially able to give even if its only $5, whatever it is will help. This mother can not return to work any time soon nor will her child/ren be able to return back to school anytime soon. They have a long road of recovery ahead of them. Let's help make this situation less of a financial burden on her for it is already taken a physical and emotional toll on her and her children. Lets get them home. Let's give them the Christmas they deserve for they did not deserve to be living through such a tragedy. All they want is to be home for Christmas!!
