Nhu's Emergency and Medical Fund

Nhu is from Vietnam, and was an exchange student in Oklahoma for her senior year of high school last year. She returned to visit her host family for winter break. On New Years Eve, Nhu, her host mom, and two host sisters were returning home from visiting family when the vehicle they were traveling in was struck by a drunk driver. The host mother was killed, and Nhu received extensive, life-threatening injuries. Her 9-year-old host sister was in critical condition, but is beginning to recover. Nhu fought for her life for 2 weeks in ICU, but ultimately passed away.

Nhu's parents were still in Vietnam and it took a lot of time and effort to desperately get emergency Visas and plane tickets so that they could be with her.

Please consider donating to help Nhu and her family with medical and travel expenses incurred by this horrible tragedy.

About this campaign: My name is Dana Donley,  and I am from Oklahoma City. My daughter Bethany was friends with Nhu when Nhu was an exchange student at PC West High School last year for their senior year. The money raised from this campaign is going directly to Nhu's parents (who live in Vietnam) to help them with any expenses incurred by this horrible tragedy  such as all of the travel expenses (of getting both parents here to Oklahoma to be with their precious daughter, before she passed,  and then getting all 3 of them back to Vietnam with Nhu's casket), and also any medical bills or expenses,  loss of income, and unfortunately Nhu's  funeral and burial expenses. Since Nhu's parents are from Vietnam, Nhu's father appointed his cousin (who lives in the USA) to withdraw the funds and send it to them in Vietnam.  The family is extremely grateful to everyone who has given to the fund and/or helped with time, money, prayers and so many acts of kindness throughout this extremely difficult ordeal.
