Mother of teen injured in accident sends message of hope at women's conference

By  | 

ADA, Okla. (KXII) - "He says Tiffany,I think your daughter's been in a car accident," Tiffany Anderson Said.

Those words changed Anderson's life last year.

Her daughter Avery, 17, had to be medi-flighted to a trauma center in Oklahoma City.

Doctors didn't expect her to survive.

"I see that they're pulling the gurney out and the pillow's just covered blood," Anderson said.

But Avery lived, now Anderson is sharing her story to bring a sense of hope to other women in the Ada community.

"I want people to see that there can be joy in any circumstance,"Anderson said.

"Her story's just incredible, just her faith, just her daily life," Conference Co-chairman Stacey Golightly said,"she and Boadie lead by example, it just gives us all hope and encouragement."

Organizers say the Anderson's made a huge impact on the community.

"We have a story to share, and I can share how we've managed to get through this," Anderson said.

But, Anderson tells us it hasn't been easy.

They spent at least a year in at least three different hospitals, and although Avery's home she's minimally conscious.

"I would love to be able to stand here and talk to you about the miracle that is Avery,"She said, "and her restoration, and that she is you know 100 percent healed but sadly that's just not the case."

But Anderson says she'll remain resilient through her faith.

"You can have that joy regardless of what you're going through," She said.
