Car wash held for 6-year-old survivor of car crash

(WMC-TV) - A carwash fundraiser was held Saturday for the sole survivor of a car accident that left three family members dead.

Some may remember Cadence who lost her 26-year-old father Nicholas, 26-year-old mother Jessica, and two-year-old sister Brinley in the crash. Cadence is already experiencing a strong response from the community. Cards have been written and mailed for her upcoming birthday, money sent to Farmer's Bank & Trust in Blytheville, and Saturday a car wash was hosted in her honor.

Fundraiser coordinator, Katie Walker, said she doesn't know the family, but she is close with Cadence's aunt. After meeting Cadence, she wanted to do something special for her.

"The little girl melted my heart that's why I'm doing it and I think it will make her future brighter," stated Walker.

Donations were accepted at the free car wash today and the money went to the bank account set up in Cadence's name.
