My Hero, The Fighter

Video From Action 3 News

I want you to meet a new friend of mine.  She has inspired me so much and I’m so proud to know her.  As you will see in the video, she has an amazing fighter spirit and such strength.

Amber was in a car accident months ago that left her brain damaged and in a coma.  She is a mother of a 3 year old.  God is doing a work in her, she has come so far.

Her parents found this nightmare all too familiar as her younger sister, 4 years before, was also in a car accident and died from her head injuries.

They live about an hour away, but the rehab center that Amber is staying is just a few blocks from where I live.  I have had the privilege of sitting with her a few times, and she has just taken and kept a piece of my heart.

She, too, has a Caring Bridge site.  It is so intensely personal as her family writes daily about Amber’s progress, set backs, and just plain miracles that happen with her daily.  Their faith is amazingly strong, I learn so much from them.  They are a special, special family.  If you have the time, visit her Caring Bridge site and read her story from the beginning.  You will be amazed at how good God is, even in the midst of tragedy.

If you don’t have time to read, will you lift their family up in prayer?  Especially pray for  continued healing of her brain– strength and coordination to walk.  For her precious son, Bailey, and for the peace and stamina of her family.
