This year has been a year of tragedy, heartbreak, and loss for Lisa and Jeff Yeager. On March 13th, 2013 they lost their precious daughter, Nikki Yeager, in an automobile accident. Nikki was an outstanding student and a Major in the MCJROTC. Burying a child is the last thing any parent should have to do and the pain that comes with it is insurmountable. The family has spent the last few months adjusting to life without Nikki and continuing to keep life as normal as possible for their 19 year old son Andrew. Picking up the pieces has not been easy.
As the months have passed and time has started to heal, the unthinkable happened. Their son, and last surviving child, Andrew was in a car accident on July 27th, 2013. Andrew was air lifted to the Med and remains there in critical condition. Andrew suffered a fractured skull, collapsed lung, damage to his carotid artery (which restricted blood flow to his brain), as well as extensive damage to his vertebrae/spinal cord with the most damage being at T6.
The Yeager family has endured more pain in the past 4 months than any family should ever have to endure. This page is being set up to keep family and friends updated on Andrews condition as well as to raise funds for the many medical bills that the family will face. Andrew has already had several surgeries and will require many more. He will also require long term rehab to learn to walk again!
Please keep the Yeager family in your daily prayers. The power of prayer is an AMAZING thing. All things are possible through God and we pray that Andrew is restored to his former self and that he has complete healing!!
A family member will post a daily (or as often as possible) update regarding Andrews condition!
