For Maggie, Janelle, Althea & Josie

On the eve of August 12, our dear friend Maggie was riding her bicycle with her 1-year-old daughter Althea in a baby trailer, when they were struck by a vehicle. Her 4-year-old daughter was riding just ahead of them, but avoided the collision.

Althea's life was taken that day and Maggie is recovering from critical injuries. 

We’re all devastated by Maggie and her family's loss and want to raise funds to help. Maggie’s wife Janelle and surviving daughter Josie have a long road to recovery. The financial burden of this situation is the last thing we want them to think about.

We're currently asking for donations to help cover expenses. Maggie is recovering from a brain bleed, broken clavicle, punctured lung, and broken ribs.

The family feels strongly that they do not want anyone to feel obligated to donate or give beyond their means. Their wishes are that folks only donate if they feel this is the only way they are able to help and feel called to do so.

Please consider donating, as any amount will truly help their family during this difficult time.

Thank you so much.

Jamie & Friend’s of the Kantola-Palmer Family
