She was taken to the hospital in Rosebud, then air lifted to Rapid City Regional Hospital. Rachel is now being cared for at Madonna Rehabilitation Hospital in Lincoln, Neb. She is comatose and has a tracheotomy to help her breathe; she is being fed through a feeding tube. “Every day since that day, Rachel has been fighting for her life,” said Rachel’s sister-in-lawMichele Eagleman. Since that day in May, her mother, Norma Sorace, has been taking care of Rachel’s four children. She also cares for the two children of another daughter who was killed in a wreck two years ago. Money is tight for the family and food is scarce. Norma Sorace has not been able to travel to see her daughter in Nebraska due to a lack of funds and a van that is in dire need of repair. Eagleman has set up an online fundraising account to help Norma Sorace care for her grandchildren.
