Help with their journey home .

$11,715 of $5,000 goal

Raised by 211 people in 21 days
My granddaughter Christy Ann, (7 months pregnant with twins), her 4 yr old daughter Paityn and father of the children Joseph Chandler were on their way home to California on August 29th.
They started their journey in Oklahoma in their van which broke down in Oklahoma City. 
Instead of trying to fix the van which was not in too good of shape we decided taking the Greyhound bus would be safer.  So they boarded the bus to California.  Around noon on August 30 traveling on I40 a tractor trailer blew a tire and crossed the medium and crashed head on with the bus.
Christy Ann was knocked unconscious and when she awoke in the hospital she was alone and in severe pain.  Broken leg, smashed knee, broken elbow, separated pelvic and numerous cuts and lacerations.  Joseph has severe internal bruising and Paityn seems at this time to be physically okay.  We thank God every minute for her and her families life. Unfortunately Christy went into labor with the twins.  They are 2 months premature.  They are on life support and they were taken to another hospital.  Together weighing a little under 6 lbs.   
They have lost all their possessions. They have no money, clothes or a place to go as the babies will be in the hospital for at least 6 to 8 weeks.  Christy will need extensive surgery and rehabilitation therapy. 
If you can possibly help please donate.  If unable to please keep them in your prayers.  Christy Ann has a long road ahead of her. Thanking you for your time and prayers.

Hello everyone. Just want to update you on the kids journey. They are trying their best to cope with their situation. Christy is healing but will be in wheelchair for 5 or 6 more weeks. They have discovered Joe has some broken ribs so some more healing there.
Little Joseph is gaining weight! Yay! He is up to 3.6lbs. The family will probably have to be in New Mexico another 6 to 8 weeks depending on baby Joseph’s progress. Please keep them in your prayers. Thank you for all your kindness.

Hello all,
First I want to thank everyone for your prayers, kindness, blessings and donations.
Per GoFunMe rules I must inform you on how withdrawals will be handled for Christy Westerdale and her family.
As you know they have lost everything so are basically starting over. They have no home until they can get back to California. They have no bank account so at this time I, Nancy Westerdale, will need to withdraw the donations for them and distribute to them as they need. They will contact me as I am her grandmother and I will wire the money via western union or MoneyGram. This is the most efficient and quickest way to get to them when needed. Thank you again. We appreciate each and every one of you.
I will have an update on their health condition very soon.

Christy and her family have been blessed with the Ronald Macdonald House. They have provided housing and shuttle back and forth to hospital to be with the twins. Again we want to express our sincere thanks for your support financially and all of your prayers and blessings. Update with pics of twins soon.
