Beloved Teton Middle School typing teacher, Madi Quissek sadly died in a head-on collision outside of Tetonia on June 7th. Her 8-year old daughter, Emma Kent, was life-flighted to Salt Lake Children's hospital that night. With a bruised lung, Emma underwent emergency surgery to address her intestines where they were impacted by her seatbelt. Emma is out of surgery, recovering and expected to be released in a week. Her father, Tim Kent, was able to meet her in Rexburg and fly to Salt Lake alongside her.
Understanding the impact of the double devastation of medical expenses and loss on this, most helpful, family is unfathomable. As we all know, every little bit goes a long way during these times of crisis. For those that have asked how they can help, this is one way you can support Tim and Emma during their long recovery.
Additionally, we grieve the loss of sweet, 8-year-old Dory. You can support her mother, Frankie here
More information on a meal train and other ways you might be able to help is forthcoming. Thank you.
