Mothers are precious, and Jillian Easton is grateful to be one today.

Long before she was pregnant with little Juke, Jillian found herself fighting for her life after being t-boned by a semi while en route to a doctor’s appointment. She was in critical condition when STARS flew her to a trauma centre from her hometown hospital, but she went on to make a full recovery, and less than two years after the accident, her son was born.

Now Jillian is an active ally for STARS, and we couldn’t be more grateful.

Watch Jillian share her story here.
