I just got home from the ER with my youngest who is almost 18. She was in a car accident this morning on the way to school and we are so lucky she’s OK except for a pounding headache and nausea. A CAT scan and X-Ray show she really is fine. But too often people aren’t so lucky. This past week, a fellow romance author, Jackie Barbosa, lost her 16 year old son in a car accident. And so I know first hand how fortunate I was yesterday morning. So today’s blog is to say THANK YOU … and to reflect.
Over the weekend, I donated to the Julian Fraire Memorial Fund in memory of Jackie’s son. There are plans to create a scholarship fund in his name with the donations. If you’d like to donate, the link is below. Any amount big or small is greatly appreciated. The link below leads to a website with a link to a Paypal account set up by Beverly Kendall, who is a close friend of the family and is coordinating donations on their behalf.
DONATE TO THE JULIAN FRAIRE MEMORIAL FUND HERE.
In addition, Jackie’s book, BEHIND THE RED DOOR is on sale now by Kensington Publishing in support of Jackie. More information HERE.
All the best and my condolences to Jackie and her family during this beyond difficult time.
