On Monday, November 22, Colin (17) and Ashlyn (14) Gillespie were involved in a serious accident on their way to school in Pendleton. Both children were Lifelined and Colin is in the ICU at Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis and Ashlyn is in the ICU at Riley Childrens Hospital in Indianapolis ; both in critical condition. Upon arrival, both Colin and Ashlyn were intubated and both have brain injuries. Colin is also suffering from broken ribs. Both children are receiving MRI’s to monitor the brain swelling. Colin and Ashlyn are unconscious, but responding to pain.
We ask that your pray for Colin and Ashlyn to escape the aftermath of this tragic accident without any long term effects. We also ask that you lift the doctors, surgeons, nurses and therapists up in prayer. And the entire Gillespie family, especially Bill, Tracy, and Laney.
The Gillespie Family has a long recovery ahead of them and will need monetary donations and gift cards for gas, food, lodging, and of course medical bills.
