A family is slowly getting back on their feet after an accident kills a mother of four. Just a little over a week ago, a rollover crash on I-440 killed 30-year-old Ashley Atkins and sent her son to the hospital. Atkins was on her way to home to the bus stop so she could pick up one of her sons from school.

Nancy Myers, who is the aunt of Ashley Atkins, has set up a memorial fund at FirstBank in Fairview, TN.

Atkins leaves behind a husband, three sons, and a stepdaughter. They sons are 15, 12, and 3 years old.  Her stepdaughter is 11 years old.

With Christmas right around the corner, Myers hopes she can still give the kids the Christmas of their dreams.

"We have four little kids who need  help and a dad who will need help down the road," said Nancy Myers. 

Myers says you can also donate over the phone.  All you have to do is give FirstBank a call and tell them the account number, which is 87690566.

Myers adds that the son, 3-year-old Hunter who was in that crash, has been released from the hospital and is doing well.
