Community rallies in support of Walnut Grove student critically injured in wreck

Emily Trew, a Junior at Walnut Grove High School, was critically injured in a single vehicle car wreck over the Christmas weekend and had to be life flighted to Grady Memorial Hospital where she remains in a critical condition. Emily was a passenger in the vehicle that hit a tree off Old Highway 138 on Dec. 23, 2017.

While her condition has improved, Emily is still in a critical condition and her recovery is expected to take some time. This is expected to put a huge strain on the family, who is currently living at the hospital with her. As a way to help ease their financial concerns, a Gofundme page has been started by Jennifer Ginn Butler.
“The Trew family is such a sweet family and really need some support during this time. Emily has a huge heart, she is always praying for others and thinking of people in need. She is a fun loving active member of her church and youth group at The Praise Center, Butler wrote. “Emily’s parents received the call that is every teenage parents’ nightmare. She will remain in the hospital over the next few weeks which will be a strain financially for her parents that have not left her side. Please consider helping this precious family out by making a donation. Any donation is much appreciated! They are living at the hospital right now, the parking alone is rather expensive, not to mention having to eat out and continue to pay bills while not working to be there for their daughter. Please pray for God to continue healing and strengthening Emily’s body and give her parents strength and comfort. Thank you so much.”
If you are not able to contribute, the community is rallying around this family and prayers for a continuation of her healing also are being sought.
“God has shown Himself in Emily’s situation where she has had victories and improvements, however she still remains in critical condition,” Butler wrote.

There also will be times off work and other unexpected expenses.
