Peace for Paisley--Memorial Fund

$33,370 of $5,000 goal

Raised by 486 people in 2 months
Created September 11, 2018
On September 10, 2018,  beautiful three-and-a-half year old Paisley Vanek was killed in a car accident. She was riding in the car with her mom, Amber, and her aunt, Tamra, and cousin, Norah, when it was struck from the side by a driver who ran a red light. Paisley was killed on impact. 

Amber, Tamra, and Norah were rushed to the ICU where Norah remains in critical condition from head injuries. We continue to pray for her full recovery. 

Words cannot express the complete devastation we feel as a family. Paisley leaves behind her older brother, Jace, her parents, Josh and Amber, as well as extended family and friends who were touched by her short and beautiful life.  Paisley had a contagious smile and loving personality. We will remember her forever. 

Please help us support the family as they struggle to find a way through this tragedy. All donations will directly help the family cover immediate memorial and medical expenses. Your prayers, messages, and ongoing support are also deeply appreciated. Thank you, and rest in peace, sweet Paisley.
