The Story

On April 6, 2014, Jesse and Rebecca Sperry were on they way home from church, she was going to be induced that evening to give birth to their first child. Tragically, they were in a horrible car accident.  An off duty police officer rearended their vehicle, Jesse was killed in the accident and Rebecca was lifelined to St. Vincent and was taken into an emergency c-section.  She delivered a beautiful baby girl.  Rebecca has some injuries from the accident and the baby was taken to Riley for some specialized treatment.

This fundraiser is to raise money to cover expenses and current/future medical expenses for Rebecca and her daughter. If you don't feel comfortable donating here.  You may send a check made payable to Edgewood Baptist Church, 3743 Nichol Ave. Anderson, IN 46011. 100% of all proceeds will go to them!

********UPDATE*******
We have reopened the online fundraiser.  There are still continual medical issues and expenses that are not covered.  We also have posted some new pictures of Rebecca and her daughter.  The church is taking donations as well, if you feel more comfortable with that form.

Friends,

We have so much that has happened the last several days!  It has been such a testimony of the outpouring of love and mercy shown to Rebecca and the baby!  We wanted to share several things that have happened –

 

Our goal has almost been reached with the donations from the website and through our church

A photographer donated a newborn session to Rebecca when she is well enough

The apartment complex has given 3 months free rent

A sweet lady has donated all of the items on the registries

Lowes donated supplies to redo a baby crib

The employer of Rebecca’s father and brother in law gave them the week paid

A fundraiser for a motorcycle ride has been organized for April 27th

 

We are trying to keep track of all the ways that God is blessing and helping the family.  We are just so thankful and so overwhelmed.  Thank you so much
