Rhiannon's Car Accident
Organized by: Philip Stranathan
Rhiannon is one of my closest friends. She and I first met when she started working in my dining room at a retirement home. She recently fell on some seriously rough times. As in, something a person so young should never have to deal with. In the last six months, she's been in two accidents, neither of which was her fault, and she has had serious damage done, not only to her car, but to her body as well. After the first accident, which thankfully was covered by insurance, she had serious physical therapy appointments and was not allowed back to work for 2 months. If you've ever tried to support yourself, much less a household, on $8 an hour, you know how much it hurts to miss even one day of work. Then, she and her family were essentially forced out of their home by the state because they refused the aid they so desperately needed while she wasn't working, forcing them to move to VA. She was supposed to be able to transfer to the section of the retirement home located in VA, but she unfortunately was rejected because she was going to college in the fall, and they did not want to take her on for such a short time. They had been in Virginia for a few months, when her mother was driving the car (they share the car) and it started raining, and another car bumped into her causing her to hydroplane and careen into the railing. So, because she had such a recent accident and the driver of the other car was nowhere to be found, they told her that she was simply unable to be covered, and wrote it off as if it were her fault. So, now they are deep in debt with the lawyer of the second case as there was no settlement and they now have to get their car fixed. So, anything you can give is so appreciated. And if you cannot afford to give, but you've read this far, your thoughts and prayers (if you are so spiritually inclined) are so appreciated. Thank you so much, and have a blessed day.
