On July 22, 2020, while standing near the street with friends, Avery Barnes, 16, was tragically struck by a car and critically injured in a horrific accident caused by a drunk driver.
She is suffering from multiple internal injuries, broken bones and serious skin injuries and burns on over 30% of her body that will require dozens of painful reconstructive surgeries, skin grafts, lengthy hospital stays and extensive physical therapy.
Avery is expected to fully recover in 18-24 months, but will still have painful physical and emotional scars to work through. Please pray for Avery and her family as they tackle these challenges.
