How the community can help Breeanna’s rehabilitation

ON SUNDAY night a Go Fund Me page was created by Breeanna's cousin Sarah Ford in the hope the community would help the family in need.

With over $500 raised in 22 hours, the page has been a success.

The goal for the family was to raise at least $5000 to pay for the medical expenses involved in Breeanna's rehabilitation.

Breeanna was hit by a car outside Toolooa State High School on Thursday, and faces 18 months of rehabilitation.

The largest donation to date was $100 by an anonymous person.

Pam Elliot donated $50 to the cause and gave her best wishes.

"God bless, be strong and get well soon. I'm sending love and healing thoughts," she said.

Breeanna's father Richard Feeney said he was amazing at how the community had banded together to get on board and support his family.

"I just can't believe how helpful and kind people have been," he said.

"Not only have we had ongoing support and donations from the community, but we have also been delivered flowers and caring messages.

"Breeanna has received an enormous amount of support from her friends and even people she hasn't met. We couldn't be more thankful."

The page itself has reached 452 shares and is growing by the hour.

The one-income family is in desperate need of help.
