Please help Tracee Sumrall and her family with medical expenses resulting from a near fatal accident with an unlicensed & uninsured driver.

It started like any other day, but on January 8, 2013 the lives of Tracee Sumrall, a 25 year old Texas A&M Kingsville student, and her family were changed forever.

Tracee was on her way to work at Fastenal in Alice, TX when she was involved in a near fatal collision with an oncoming vehicle driven by an unlicensed & uninsured driver that entered her lane and struck her, narrowly avoiding a head on collision. Following the accident Tracee's doctors kept her in an induced coma until approximately January 23, during which time she battled a staph infection & pneumonia in addition to all of the complications, such as severe brain swelling, directly resulting from her accident. Tracee's parents, who live in Houston, have been at the Corpus Christi hospital she was taken to everyday since the accident, spending many nights sleeping in the waiting room.

As of February 1, she has yet to wake up from the coma, but she is moving her extremities and her eyes are tracking to sound. Her family has faith and hope that things won't be at the severe end of the scale when she does regain consciousness. Tracee's neck and upper spine both look good, and there is no damage to her brain stem, which is the most critical part in her being able to regain consciousness.

There are however some areas of concern, the doctors see an area of damage on the right frontal lobe, as well as a smaller area of damage to the left midbrain, lastly there is also some damage to the left cerebellum. Even with the areas of concern, it is still encouraging news that there doesn't appear to be anything that can't be made bettery with intense behavioral and physical therapy.

We all realize that Tracee has a long and challenging road ahead of her. but with your love, support and prayers, we know she will get through this the best she possibly can. Any help you can give will be greatly appreciated by Tracee, her family and friends, even without donating you can still help by sharing this on Facebook and by praying for Tracee and her family. Thank you and God bless you.
