Fundraiser for Samantha Ambrose

Published: Thursday, July 11, 2013 at 09:37 AM.

Funding for the intensive reintegration and life-long care many of these survivors need is almost nonexistent. Few private insurances cover life-long care. Government-funded insurance is rare and private pay options are only afforded to the affluent. Currently, Michigan is the only state to provide no-fault auto insurance that covers unlimited medical rehabilitation benefits. This added coverage is set aside for Michigan residents for pennies per day for each insured driver in the state.

We, the family and friends of Samantha Ambrose, are asking for your help. Our aim is to raise awareness of the long-long commitment and financial burden that often befalls the families and caregivers of those who have suffered a TBI. We seek to inform the public that through our efforts, TBI survivors can receive the car and attention they need to return to society as productive individuals. As a start, we encourage you to contact your state representatives to request the same automobile no-fault coverage be afforded to the citizens of Florida. We humbly ask that as you are able to contribute to the account set up at Tyndall Federal Credit Union to continue Samantha’s recovery.

To donate, call TFCU at 850-769-9999 and ask for “Account for Samantha Ambrose.”

You may contact Susie Ambrose at 580-819-1513 or email for further details on how you can help.

A Fish Fry fundraiser will take place on July 12 at Frank Pate Park in Port St. Joe. Fish, coleslaw, baked beans and bread will be served for $7 a plate and the event will run from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. ET.
