Sarah Godfrey- update

Sarah Godfrey was severely injured in an auto accident on Friday, November 17.

I heard today that tests indicate that it appears that she may maintain control of both arms and legs. At this stage, considering the scope of the injuries, that's good news.

This comes after some earlier good news.

Sarah Godfrey is a thirteen year old girl from Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania. She's an eighth-grade student at St. Boniface School.

This past Friday, she was hit by a car. She had just exited a vehicle after being dropped off. She sustained severe head injuries and was placed in a drug-induced coma.

"She is in a struggle for her life", says her uncle, Herb Godfrey. " She is a strong girl. Her vital signs are good, but we don't know the extent of the head injury".

Her mother Bridget is asking those concerned to pray for Sarah. She has made a "prayer map" with stars in all the places in the world where people are praying for Sarah. If you care to join the prayer map, please add a comment here, with your location, or send me an e-mail at

A fund has been established for the benefit of the family. Any money raised will go toward lodging and travel expenses, and will help with the girl’s rehabilitation, said Herb Godfrey, director of purchasing at King’s College.

Donations can be made to the Sarah Godfrey Fund, Choice One Credit Union, 101 Hazle St., Wilkes-Barre, PA 18702.

My mother, the late Regina Bria, was Sarah's teacher until this past spring. She always spoke so highly of Sarah and loved to have her in class. I was so sad to hear of Sarah's accident. I am praying for her and the Godfrey family.
