Carmen’s Legacy tells the story of a family’s journey of tragedy and hope. At Age forty-two, John Maher was involved in a fatal car crash in which he was severely injured and the eighteen-year-old driver of the other vehicle was killed. Thankfully, John was not at fault. His injuries were so severe that doctors informed him he would never work again. Married with four daughters in either secondary school or university, this was a tremendous blow to this young family.
