CLARKSVILLE, Tenn.- Emily Jean is like most 7-year-old girls. Her favorite color is purple, she attends 2nd Grade at Glenellen Elementary, she loves glitter, anything that sparkles and chocolate cake, but there’s one thing that sets Emily Jean apart from the rest.
On February 17th, 2011, Emily Jean was asleep in the backseat of her aunt’s car when it was struck head-on by a drunk driver. She suffered many internal injuries, including one to her spine that left her paralyzed with only a 2% chance of recovery.
The good news is that Emily Jean has been accepted to participate in a medical study, but it will cost over $30,000. Chick-fil-A on Wilma Rudolph Boulevard is helping out Emily Jean and her family and is asking the public to come out in a night of support.
On Friday, November 30th, from 5-8 p.m., 25% of all sales generated at the Wilma Rudolph location of Chick-fil-A will be given to support treatment for Emily.
Come out and enjoy dinner and show support along with the PTO’s of Glenellen, Rossview, Hazelwood and West Creek Elementary Schools, MADD, Bikers Who Care, Clarksville Fire & Police Department, Miss TN Jr. Miss and Firefighter COW.
There will also be a raffle for prizes. Chick-fil-A is located at 3096 Wilma Rudolph Blvd. For more information call 931-552-5511.
