Today, a local car dealership, Pohanka of Salisbury, answered the prayers of one family in need. Their actions proved there is still goodness in the world and that there are people who do care about their neighbors. One family’s struggle was answered with an act of kindness that needs to be told.
Many of us see that the news today and it is just awful. There are wars, unemployment, drug problems and homelessness. Reporting on children whether it is illness, injury or a disappearance can be quite difficult. There never seems to be an unending amount of bad news. Today though, there is hope. This is a story of generosity, compassion and hope. This is the story of one family’s struggle and how their prayers were answered.
On March 2nd, Jeremy Sennhauser’s world changed forever. He received the call all parents dread. Jeremy’s son had been severely injured, a head injury and it was quite serious. It wasn’t clear what had happened but Mason was quite ill. Jeremy would later find out that his son had a traumatic brain injury resulting from shaken baby syndrome. Jeremy was not with his son when the injury occurred. (He and his wife are separated). Jeremy’s 16 month, Mason needed immediate surgery and there would be a long road towards recovery.
As Jeremy settled in with a routine of caring for his son he was hit with another problem. His car simply gave out. It was completely useless. It was then that Jeremy reached out through Facebook to see if anyone could help with an inexpensive but dependable car. Friends on Facebook took notice. Then something magical happened. Pamela Pritchard a friend on Facebook knew all about Jeremy’s circumstance. She contacted the car dealership Pohanka of Salisbury and after hearing Jeremy’s story, this wonderful, generous organization has made the decision to donate a brand new 2015 Nissan Versa. That’s right, a brand new car. This family who has been through so much, is still going through a lot and the family has so much more to do for the future but one thing they can now count on is dependable transportation. Meghan Fitzgerald-Kenney, a sales-rep for the dealership said in a phone call said that as a company, “they were very happy to help.”
This story will continue as Mason gets stronger and continues in his physical therapy. Mason has a long road to recovery but he has fought to be here. Jeremy calls Mason a “champion among fighters.” With the new vehicle that Pohanka of Salisbury has donated Jeremy has one less thing to worry about and one other reason to believe in miracles.
