Savannah Welch, an actress, known for her roles in many local films including Boyhood and Tree of Life, as well a member of the popular band The Trishas, was hit by a vehicle on November 2 at a farmers market in her family’s hometown of Wimberley, Texas. She was accompanied by her father, noted songwriter Kevin Welch, and her four-year-old son Charlie, neither of whom were injured. Savannah was Life Flighted to Brackenridge Hospital in Austin where doctors determined the impact injury sustained to her right leg was beyond repair resulting in amputation.
Although Savannah does have insurance, there are immediate needs that must be met before any insurance claims will be settled and a vast amount of costs that will be incurred for her family from this life-changing injury that are unknown at this time. Savannah is facing all this with mind-blowing strength, positivity, gratitude and determination to begin building her new life with her son, life partner, family and friends. Beyond extensive medical fees, there will be needs for child Charlie-care, family travel expenses, an appropriate living situation that will cater to her physical therapy and healing needs, assisted home care, clothing (you know she’ll be gigging again in no time) and many more things well beyond what can currently be thought of. Savannah is a living miracle and an inspiration to us all and is fighting with all her might everyday to move forward. Let’s help her begin again and join in the celebration of being blessed with her beautiful soul on this earth.
“Thank you for your support and prayers,” Kevin Welch says. “We’re so grateful for our friends, and incredibly inspired by Savannah’s bravery and strength throughout this whole ordeal.”
“Savannah is a warrior woman, strong in will and spirit,” Dustin says. “Her life – as is ours – is doubtlessly altered, but in no way diminished. We are fortunate for that. My sweet, beautiful sister is truly my hero.”
