Tara Kaye Wayman is my niece. She broke her back july 4, leaving her at least temporarily paralyzed and some nerve damage, during a July 4 celebration at Medina Lake near Boerne, Texas.
Tara required major back surgery and is facing months of extensive occupational and physical therapy, She is in a wheelchair now, probably long-term, with numbness and very little use of her legs, while re-building the strength in both arms.
Her husband is managing a 5-month old son, as well as a quite lively 5-year old son.
Tara has taken a leave of absence from a full-time job. Her family is facing many emotional and financial burdens. We need help with the baby and her 5-year old, rides to therapy, medicine, medical equipment, housing, and the bills that will accompany her now "new normal"
