Michelle Money, who competed on season 15 of the ABC reality series, revealed on Instagram Monday that her 15-year-old daughter is on life support after a skateboarding accident left her with serious trauma and a fractured skull.
Money shared a photo of her daughter, Brielle, in an intensive care unit at Intermountain Healthcare’s Primary Children’s Hospital in Salt Lake City. The teen was put into a medically induced coma to relieve pressure on her brain.
“Please – I am asking for prayers. I believe in the power of communication with whatever God you believe in.” She continued. “The energy of your conscious focus to send healing to my daughter is real. In Whatever form you commune with your Higher power, please as a desperate mother, I am begging you to do so.”
“She needs support and healing right now,” added Money, 39. “And if you could send one up for me as well, I would appreciate it. This is the worst experience of my life.”
Money also used her post to implore parents to “ALWAYS MAKE [your kids] WEAR THE HELMET. ALWAYS. EVEN WHEN THEY PUSH BACK.”
“Thank you to the neighbors who happened to be on a walk and found her and called 911. You will never understand. I would not have found her in time,” the former reality star Wrote. “My heart is forever grateful. Thank you to all of you who have sent prayers and messages and love.”
“Brielle has been through so much already this year. She has proven how strong she is. I know she will pull through. #PrayForBrie,” Money concluded her post.
A few hours later, Money gave an update in another Instagram post. According to the former reality star, Ryan Money, her ex-husband, and Brielle’s father was waiting in the hospital’s parking lot due to coronavirus restrictions that allow only one parent visitor at a time.
