We alert you today of of a single mother and her son that are in need. On December 8th of last year they were both struck by a car while trying to cross a busy road. At the time of the accident the mother was supporting her son well by working her customer service job with a large corporation.
The accident left the young boy with a torn small intestine, broken ribs, a punctured lung, a broken pelvis, and 13 stitches. The mother suffered a fractured vertebra, bulging disk, 2 lost teeth, and two other teeth were broken. Clearly the son suffered the most life threatening injuries, but they are both fortunate to be alive today.
Due to the injuries to both her and her son, the mother was forced to take FMLA and short-term disability from work.
As you can imagine this has created a financial strain on this single mother. Our local church partner has been walking with her through this trying time in her life and now needs our help.
The mother has been released to work again and is super excited to get back at it. The only issue is child care for her son. Before the accident he stayed in before school care and after school care. As you can imagine this is a long day for the little guy in any condition. However, his injuries are now preventing him from being able to attend after school care. Once he has healed a little more he will be able to go back to his old routine.
So we need to provide some funds to get him some home care for 1 month so that this hard working single mother can get back to work and independantly providing for her son.
