This is actually very close to home. Robin Perlo Berry was a friend of mine in highschool. Robin and her husband Josh were killed in a car accident 4th of July weekend coming back home to Houston. Their 3 children were also in the car but survived. Unfortunately they were instantly orphaned AND two of the children were paralyzed. This has gone viral and thousands of friends, family, strangers, and celebrities are either posting about it on facebook or tweeting about it. You can show your support too! The cost to help these children out is going to be millions of dollars so any contribution from you big or small will help!
You can check out their story here….
On July 3rd while returning from an annual family road trip in Colorado back to their home in Houston, Texas the Berry Family found themselves to be victims of a horrific and trag…ic fatal car accident. Their Minivan carrying parents Joshua and Robin Berry and their children Peter age 9, Aaron age 8, and Willa age 6 was hit head on by another vehicle who had crossed into their lane of traffic. The parents Joshua and Robin Berry were tragically killed leaving their 3 children behind. While the children did survive the crash, both boys sustained serious spinal cord injuries and they are both paralyzed below the waist. The children are currently being treated for their many injuries in a Houston, Texas area hospital. There is a significant urgent need to raise funds to aid these now orphaned children’s ongoing needs, including medical rehabilitation, physical therapy, psychological support and education.
