Aid: Fund established to defray medical costs

By John Severance and Tris DeRoma

A special fund has been set up for Divine Fellers, the girl who was riding in the same car involved in the accident that took the life of Nikolas Ventura-Arencon the day before Thanksgiving.

According to her father Elgin, though his 13-year-old daughter came home from the hospital earlier this week, she still has quite a way to go in her recovery.

“She’s doing well, considering she’s had her pelvis broken in four or five places and her spleen removed,” Fellers said.

Both parents, Elgin and Nicole, said the outpouring of support they’ve received since the accident has been touching.

“We’ve definitely had our ups and downs, but the community has been very supportive,” Nicole said. “Everyone’s been so sweet and helpful; bringing us meals and giving us hugs everywhere we go.”

Even in their time of mourning and need, Nicole said the Ventura family, especially Jennifer, has been by often to talk with Nicole and the family.

“And of course, our love and condolences go out to them as well,” Nicole said of the Ventura family.
Some younger members of the community have also been looking for ways to help the Fellers family defray medical costs.
