The family and friends of Amber Eaves are uniting to raise money to help her in the fight for her life after a tragic vehicle accident!

While driving down Hwy 78, on her way home Tuesday night 2/15/11, Ambers lost control of her car due to a blowout of one of the tires on the drivers side. The vehicle hit the median and proceeded to flip several times, causing her to be ejected out of the vehicle. Amber was airlifted to The Med in downtown Memphis, TN where she spent about eight week fighting for her life! Her skull was fractured in several places which also caused about seven major lesions to her brain as well as several tears to the membrane around her brain. This also caused spinal fluid to leak out of her ears and nose. The doctors were able, with very intensive surgery, to repair MOST of the tears and lesions and have been able to put her skull and facial bones back together as much as they can. She was on full life support for a majority of her stay at The Med. She was finally stabilized enough to be released to the care of her most caring mother, Cathy, but, due to the severe traumatic brain injuries, has remained in a vegetative state with limited motor function and is also on a feeding tube to sustain her nutrition. As you can imagine her medical bills are already astronomical and will continue to multiply as the days go on. For anyone that knows her, Amber is the strongest, kindest most sincere and loyal person and friend. She works very hard for her family and has always taken such good care of her mother, Cathy whom she lives with! There is more strength in numbers so lets band together and help Amber fight this tough battle and get back the life she loves so much and caring for her mom who depends on her! Your donations will not only help pay for her hospital bills, but will also help provide her with a specialized wheelchair that will aid in her rehabilitation, and also help pay for her special nutrition that goes in her feeding tube and her daily medications she must take.
***On July 23rd, we will be hosting a fundraising wrestling match at the Agricenter in Memphis, TN along with a band and other activities. Please stay tuned for more details and ticket sales to this event!!!***
