Tucker and Jackson Sparks are among the child survivors of the Waukesha parade attack, but Jackson, 8, “needs a miracle,” a GoFundMe page for the family says.
They are among the 48 victims and survivors of the attack; five people died. “Tucker and Jackson Sparks were among the seriously injured yesterday at the Waukesha parade. Both are members of the Waukesha Blazers Baseball Team,” Land O’ Lakes baseball team wrote on Facebook.
Here’s how you can help the Sparks family:
The GoFundMe page for them reads,
“My name is Alyssa and I am the niece of Aaron and Sheri Sparks, who have been impacted by the horrific events at the Waukesha Christmas Parade in Waukesha, Wisconsin on Sunday, November 21, 2021.
While attending the Waukesha Christmas parade, an SUV tragically entered the parade route and struck 40 victims. Two of those victims were children, Tucker (age 12) and Jackson (age 8) Sparks. The entire family is devastated and their parents, Aaron and Sheri, are at the bedsides of their children who are both at Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin. Tucker, is recovering, but sustained road rash and a fractured skull. They are closely monitoring his head and spine. He is stable at this time. Jackson, age 8, underwent brain surgery on Sunday evening. Doctors will be testing for brain function and brainstem activity today (Monday, November 22nd). He needs a miracle.
The family is facing mounting medical expenses with two children receiving medical treatment, and time away from work. Any donation, large or small, is so appreciated and will make a big difference to the Sparks family. Aaron and Sheri are people of faith, so please continue to lift them and their boys in prayer. Even if you’re not able to give, please share their story.”
