Ava Needs Your Help

Nicole (my sister) and Ava (my niece) were t-boned while crossing a divided highway. Nicole suffered 3 broken ribs, a fractured orbital, burns from the airbags and more lacerations than we can count. Ava did not fair as well.

Ava was ejected from the car, booster seat and all. She was thrown 40 feet into the ditch. She suffered a major concussion, brain bleeding, a fractured neck vertebrae, neck ligament damage, a bruised lung, a lacerated liver, broken femur at the hip, a broke rib, and more cuts and scrapes than we can count.

This is going to cost far more than any of us could afford so I am reaching out for help. Anything you can donate would go a long way towards their recovery.39247406_155794656246887_r.jpeg
