Just Fight Ally
Description
Ally was a normal 7yr old girl and drowned in our bath tub last December. After spending 4 months in the hospital (on maximum life support for 2 1/2 weeks) she fights everyday to recover from her anoxic Brain injury. She is now nonverbal, wheelchair bound, and tube fed but every day there is small progress to hopefully one day getting back to where she was. Mom and dad saved her life by performing CPR before EMS arrived. Now we have started a foundation called Just Fight to spread awareness of CPR, the importance of donating blood, and helping other families in need during times of crisis. Check out Ally's FB page Just Fight! or the foundation website at www.justfightfoundation.org

Ellen,  We had asked for some assistance last year when the Turner family needed a  handicapped accessible van for Ally and unfortunately we didn't hear back from you.  PLEASE!!  PLEASE!!   PLEASE reach out to this family as Ally and her family have an incredible inspiration story to share about a young girl, her parents and 12 year old brother who has come so far in just one year because she, nor they,  just never quit!!!  #Just Fight!!!

Ally's story, her progress, her endurance and her family's support and determination are beyond inspiring. No matter what hurdles have been thrown in the mix (any many have been huge) since Ally's accident in December of last year, they have never quit, never given up hope never stopped fighting the good Fight for Ally's life!  #JustFight

Writing as we did last year to convey the amazing story of this little girl and her loving family; for her family extends beyond the four walls of her home. The story of her recovery has become a rallying point for an entire community. I hope that you will equally consider both the incredible connection the Just Fight foundation has made with our town, as well as the true potential the tale of this journey has to move and  inspire your audience just as it has for so many of us.

Hi Ellen, Ally's story is one you need to read. Not only will you see how much strength one little girl can have but you will also see how strong her parents are. Everyday I read their post on fb and wonder how do they do it. Please reach out to the Turner family. Thank you!

Hey Ellen..this little girl is Ally. Ally is a fighter. I was blessed enough to come across the Turner family this past year and to follow them and their story. The love and strength they have for each other to keep fighting this battle is truly inspiring. If you goto their #JustFight page you can see the progress and triumphs of Ally.

Hello Ellen!!  Thank you in advance for taking the time to read about a truly inspiring little girl.  She holds a special place in my heart not only because she's a fighter...she happens to be my niece. Her story is one of hard work, dedication, perseverance and LOVE.  She has two parents and an older brother who work tirelessly with her on all aspects of her therapy on a daily basis.  She has an amazing following in our Just Fight Family who continue to support her and our family in more ways than I can count!!  Please log in to Ally's FB page Just Fight! and see for yourself.  We have started the Just Fight Foundation in hopes to help others just like Ally!!  Thank you for considering Ally and her journey and we hope you can help us share her inspiring story!! ♡ #JustFight

I'm so proud of this little girl. She has shown ALOT of people what "Just Fight" really means. She has come so far and her and her family face a tough road ahead. But they all work hard and do what it takes each and every single day to help her in her recovery journey. The Turner's are a pretty awesome family and I would love to have the opportunity to share her story far and wide so that others can share in her incredible story of hope

Wow! Ellen if you could only step into the Turner family for one day and see how amazing this family really is. Up early in the morning to late at night practicing with this child so she can try and come back to the way she was before her accident. A healthy 7 yr old who only went to take a bath and there whole world turned upside down. So if you really want a story for your show it's not only heart breaking it's incredible how amazing this family has touched so many people on Facebook not only in the US but around the globe. So look at her FB page and see all the people who wait every night for them to write how Ally did today.

Not only has Ally come so far in her recovery but her story had brought a community together in support of her and her family. To see the students at her elementary school wear pink, Just Fight clothing is a beautiful sight.
