(Killeen, Texas) - All we want to do is protect our children, be the best parents that we can be for our babies, and make sure no harm ever comes to them. At a certain point, they start to grow up and gain more independence, so it's not so easy to look after them anymore.  A concerned father by the name of Ricky Lynch is living that reality after his daughter and niece were in a traffic collision, and his family is in need of love and support from the Central Texas community.

According to Ricky, both girls are lucky to be alive. His niece suffered a broken nose, broken rubs, and some burns. However, his daughter seems to have sustain worse injuries, and they're keeping her from pursuing her passion for dance.

Ricky says his little girl, Jamya, suffered a dislocated hip and broken ankle. She had to be airlifted to Scott & White Hospital in Temple to undergo surgery, and will need physical therapy to regain the use of her lower body.

Jamya is active in dance, and Ricky says that in addition to her physical injuries, she's also experienced depression due to her inability to participate.


Neighbors helping neighbors is what Central Texas is all about, and Jamya's family is counting on that spirit of generosity. They've set up a GoFundMe page to help with the costs of the girl's care, including the flight to the hospital - a life-saving measure that still costs quite a chunk of change.

We're all feeling the financial pinch these days thanks to inflation and other crazy things going on, but if you can spare even a little to help this local family in need after a terrible car crash, you can visit their GoFundMe page here.

If you can't spare anything right now, that's understandable. Just keep this family in your prayers, and let's do all we can to help this child grow strong again and get back to doing what she loves.
