The family and friends of Jennifer Yager are uniting to raise money to help with her medical expenses.
I want to tell you about our friend and rowing teammate. An avid nature lover seeking to connect with the outdoors, Jennifer joined ARC and Liz's team in November of this year. In this short time, we have all grown to love her energy and beautiful spirit. She recently added cycling to her exercise regimen, and has been cross-training on her bike on weekends.
On Sunday, December 9th, a car going in excess of 80 miles an hour on Parmer Lane struck her and her friend from behind to avoid a cardboard box in the road. She has 8 broken ribs, shattered pelvis, broken clavicle, 7 broken leg bones, fractured neck vertebrae, brain damage, destroyed neck artery, necessitating surgery and long-term rehabilitation. Jennifer has limited health insurance. Every aspect of this debilitating tragic accident is costly. Jennifer’s healing process will be long and complicated. Not only financially; but mentally and emotionally.
We all do our best to help Jenn in her daily fight to just live life. We need financial help. We need help to for her medical treatments and living expenses estimated at $250,000 USD or more. Any additional funds will be applied to travel expenses and follow up treatments.
From the bottom of our hearts we thank you.
Carol and Bill Yager (parents), Holly and Pattric Baty (Sister and Brother In-Law), Joanne “Joiee “ Bain & Liz’s Team (Austin Rowing Club Womens Master Team), and immediate friends and family of Jennifer Yager.
Please help bring Jennifer home and share her story. God Bless.
