2: The | The Richard's family life changed in an instant when a horrific automobile accident left a five-year-old Terry Richards in the hospital for five months. Each and every day, Terry's mom drove 80 miles there and back to be by her son's side. Terry's brother, Tom, remembers the emotional toll it took on his family. “My experience occurred a long time ago, but my situation is not so dissimilar to that of so many other families,” said Richards. Because of what happened to Terry years ago, Tom Richards was compelled to help others who were in need like his family. Terry is the inspiration behind Terry's House, which was named in his honor. | Beginning | Terry and Tom Richards | 2
