On Thursday Oct 24th, the Gorham family attended the NC State Fair in hopes of some wholesome family fun. However, instead they became victims of a horrific tragedy. Three members of the immediate family were serverly injured - Father: Anthony Gorham, Mother: Kisha Gorham, and Son: 14 year old Justen Hunter. Luckily, Anthony's 4 yr old daughter, Aaliyah, and the couples 4-month-old baby, Addison, was not at the State Fair with the family. Also, there was an extended member of the family injured on the ride with the Gorhams, niece: Shykeyma Dempsey.
The extent of their injuries were very severe, including brain, skull, neck and spinal injuries. The road to physical and mental recovery will be very long and rocky for the family. Both Anthony and Kisha will need to undergo several surgeries and intensive rehab in order to overcome this ordeal. This will require them both to miss an unknown amount of time from work.
We are asking for your help with the long journey that Anthony, Kisha, and the Gorham family now face. The days ahead will be extremely difficult. We can not take away the pain and memories of this terrifying tragedy, however, we can help to alleviate some of the financial responsibilities that come with providing for a 4-month-old baby girl and 14 year old boy, medical assistance to recover from such traumatic injuries, and long term care for the providers who are now injured and can not provide for their family.
