UPDATE: Fundraiser being held for late Norris student’s family

UPDATE:

Seventeen–year–old Brianna Titterington died on March 18 in a car crash on Saltillo Road.

April Jensen not only faces the heartbreak of having to bury her daughter, but also financial struggles.  She said insurance won’t cover the medical costs of trying to save Brianna’s life because the hospital she was taken to was not in the insurance company’s network.

"I have insurance," Jensen said.  "I work.  I’ve worked there 10 years and to think that even though I have insurance, it doesn’t matter.  That’s really frustrating."

April said she wants to do a lot of things in her daughter’s memory, like setting up camp scholarships for kids.

"To have those medical bills hovering and thinking that, you know, the money that we earned or, you know, raised can take away that potential of getting those memorial things for her," she said.

So they’ve organized a fundraiser this Sunday at Lost In Fun!, a place Brianna’s family said she loved working at.

"It would be really helpful to just be able to have that peace of mind for them when they’re facing all of these things that shouldn’t be at the forefront right now," said family friend Amber Briley.

The event will include a silent auction of 120 items, including a guitar autographed by Kenny Chesney.

Those who were close to Brianna said they’re excited to have the event.

"I don’t even know how to describe how awesome it is that so many people are like, donating," said Brianna’s brother, Triston.

And they want you to be part of it.

"More people there, the better," said Brianna’s boyfriend, Harley PIckett.  "Just to see everyone come together and just have a good time and try to get closure and try to start healing a little bit."

Again, the fundraiser is 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. this Sunday at Lost In Fun, 8431 Cody Drive.

Norris High School junior Brianna Titterington died following a automobile wreck on March 23, 2018.

Now, the 17-year-old’s family is holding a fundraiser in her memory.

The fundraiser is this Sunday at Lost In Fun, near 14th and Yankee Rill Road.

The family said insurance won’t cover the medical costs from the effort to save Brianna’s life and are afraid it will bankrupt them.

"I have insurance," said Brianna’s mother, April Jensen.  "I work.  I’ve worked there 10 years and to think that even though I have insurance, it doesn’t matter.  That’s really frustrating."

The fundraiser starts with a silent auction with prizes from local businesses, as well as some big ticket items like a guitar autographed by Kenny Chesney.
