She received the worst phone call for a mother, the morning of April 7, 2016. Her ex-husband called crying, with fear in his voice " THE BOYS HAVE BEEN IN A REALLY BAD CAR ACCIDENT AND ALEX WAS EJECTED FROM THE VEHICLE"! They were coming home from Port Canaveral, where they had been on a cruise for spring break, made it to Daytona Beach where the accident occurred. Both of her children were taken to Halifax Hospital. Andrew (16) had no life sustaining injuries, where as Alex (11) had to be life-flighted to Arnold Palmer Children's Hospital in Orlando, due to a brain injury. Meanwhile, Amy and Kurt left Douglasville, GA, for what would be the longest ride of their lives! As with any brain injury, the first 48-72 hours are the most crucial. Alex has surpassed that with no surgery, thank God! He still has a very long road to recovery, and many prayers are needed.
Amy and Kurt are both self-employed. As no mother should ever have to leave her sons side during this tragedy, we are asking all of you Angels to grace this family with your monetary blessings. Medical bills are ascending, and so are the bills at home. Unfortunately, when you are self-employed, there is no income if you're not working. Therefore, we would like to thank everyone for all of your prayers, love, support, and monetary blessings!
