What Happened

Tabetha was driving to a YMCA before school program on Thursday morning, March 8, 2018.  On their way their child care site this morning Tabetha Garner and Marissa Brooks were involved in a terrible car accident.  At an intersection a truck swerved on black ice and hit her and another passenger head on.  The jaws of life had to be used to get her out of the car.  She has multiple injuries: broken vertebra in her neck, broken hip and a collapsed lung.  She will be undergoing surgery on her broken vertebrae in the morning.  Tabetha is so dedicated to the families she serves that she worried about them and cried as she laid on a back board with a neck imbolozer on, cathider in her nose and intibator in her chest.  She is passionate, caring and loves everyone around her.  


Please help us raise money for her family and medical expenses. 


Thank you, her YMCA family
