The Story

I am writing this with the most broken heart asking you all to help in any way you can to support my best friend and her family through this most difficult time.

While traveling back home to Chicago from their vacation in Disney World FL, their minivan was involved in a tragic car accident in Macon, GA. The family was injured and Gabby, 8, and unborn baby Hazel were lost in the accident. Sarah, Danean, Miette, and Owen are all currently being treated at a hospital in GA, but are doing okay.

We are asking for help to cover expenses to help them get back home to Chicago from GA, cover expenses in GA related to their car/medical, and to help support them and their day to day expenses while they take time to recover and grieve through this difficult time. Their dog, Midnight, is also currently at the vet after having surgery, and there are expenses related to that as well.

Anything you can give is most appreciated. If anyone has any questions please feel free to contact me personally. We would like to help the family focus on their health at this current time, and not feel bombarded with calls/questions. Thank you all so much for your help and understanding.

From Sarah:

Some of you I know, some of you I don't know. I just feel so much love. Everyone of us has a decision everyday to love or to judge and all of you chose love. Thank you. This is the worst thing I have ever experienced and in the blink of an eye literally my whole life has changed. We have met our goal and it's not even about the money. It's just love and we need that to figure out how to get through this. So thank you from the bottom of my heart ❤

Thank you all for your support and generosity. We met our goal of $10,000!! I decided to raise it to $15,000 because of the many expenses the family is facing, they will exceed $10,000. You all have been so amazing and I am overwhelmed by your love and willingness to help. I will update information regarding services when they become available.

As of 8pm the family is home in Chicago and resting. Right now they just need your prayers and good thoughts while they recover. If anyone wants to participate in the meal train, please contact me. 

Information on services will be updated when it becomes available. Thank you all again so much.
