This is Roxy Tyler asking for your help to fill a need that can make a major difference in a young girls life. Her name is Teysha and her mother was killed in a brazen robbery in Palm Coast nearly one year ago. The "Justice Coalition will honor this brave young lady at it's "Together We Can" breakfast on Thursday, February 20th at 7am.

Here is her story from the Justice Coalition.
On February 21, 2013, Zuheily Rosado, 32-year-old Palm Coast mother of six, was shot to death in the closing moments of her shift as a cashier at the Mobil gas station. It took only nine seconds for an unidentified man to walk into the convenience store and turn the lives of six children upside down. Not only did the children lose their mother, the apartment complex where then 16-year-old Teysha was left to care for her five younger siblings served an eviction notice; effective the day after the funeral. They were able to move in with their grandparents next door,
but were faced with even more challenges. The couple spoke only Spanish and had an apartment so small they ended up having to move for exceeding the apartment complex’s occupancy limits.
In addition, Teysha had been working to add much needed funds to her mother’s household, but lost her part-time job for being absent following her mother’s death, busy tending to her siblings. She is now 17 years old and will be sharing her story at the upcoming 12th annual Together We Can Campaign Breakfast.
If you can find it in your heart to donate the iPad for this brave young lady.
I would like you to personally be my guest at the Prayer Breakfast to help present it to her.
Please contact the Justice Coalition as soon as possible if you can help.
The donation is tax deductible. Thanks.
