The Story

My best friend and brother-in-law, Jim, his wife, Karisa, and 2 month old daughter died during a horrific car accident on April 7th.  They are survived by four children, three of which are in critical condition at Cook Children's Hospital in Ft. Worth. The majority of family is spread out in Houston and San Angelo, Texas. We just need to do what we can to help these kids recover, feel loved and move forward.

This fund will help with medical bills, memorial costs, and to keep family near the kids while they have a have a long hard recovery at Cook's.

Thank you all for your love, prayers, and donations.  We feel overwhelmed with the outpouring of love and compassion for our niece, nephews, and the family as a whole. Here is a quick update on the kids:

All 3 kids tthat are receiving medical care at Cook Children's are now on the same rehab floor and were finally reunited a few days ago! Wyatt (4) is doing so well. He suffered paralysis on his left side, but through PT has regained strength and movement. He can walk with a spotter, and they are having a hard time convincing him he shouldn't be running! He is a great comfort and support to his older siblings.  Zach (5) is struggling. He has had trouble eating and they have given him a feeding tube to  make sure he is receiving adequate nutrition.  He is also fighting off infection,  and as a result has had a high fever for the past few days. He is in a lot of pain - both physical and emotional - and is our greatest concern at this point. Angela (8) continues to improve. She is talking more and more each day and is able to read fluently for short stints at a time. She took her first wheelchair ride outside yesterday to check the weather and was glad to be in the sunshine. They are still working on managing her pain as her legs are healing from severe injuries. As can be expected, all 3 children - especially Zach and Angela -  are struggling with grief as they are coming to accept the loss of their parents and baby sister. We appreciate your continued prayers and support on their behalf.
