A family in Antioch raising a child with special needs got some help on Friday from a band of volunteers.
Jaeana Careathers, 16, has a life full of limits. Cerebral palsy makes speaking and moving difficult for her.
Her grandmother, Betty Careathers, a 29-year veteran as a Metro schools bus driver, is her everyday caretaker.
“She’s a happy child,” Betty Careathers said. “She’s real happy.”
Friday, volunteers from the business side of the Nashville Predators, along with DP Builds Construction, created a new ramp and a newbathroom that works for a wheelchair.
“It’s going to be a relief,” Betty Careathers said.
