The Faces of Tragedy

More Info

Gina Vargas is 39 years old.  She has committed her life to being a Mom.  She has five children.  She has worked in the Dental field for 22 years.  Gina’s whole life has been doing whatever it takes to provide for and keep her kids safe, spending most of her life being a single Mother.  On November 3rd, 2016, Gina and her family experienced everyone’s nightmare.  A speeding drunk driver hit Gina and 3 of her kids as they were coming home from one of her Daughter’s cheerleading games.  Unfortunately, Mercediz Elanii, only 5 months old, did not survive the crash.  With the other two girls severely injured and losing the life of their precious Baby Girl, Gina and her family want to share their story and spread awareness.  I hope that their story will save at least ONE life so no family has to go through what they have been through.
