Twin rallies for sister injured in car crash

Posted: Updated:

Tanya Wagner says her life changed in a matter seconds almost one month ago.

"On March 20th my life stopped. I looked at my phone, it was 7:30, and I just did not feel right. I did not feel right at all, and that is when it happened. Now I am living a new life," said Wagner, of Mechanicsburg.

Tanya's twin sister, Sanya Wagner, was in a car accident. Her car was struck when she tried to cross Route 15 in Dillsburg.

Sanya was flown to Penn State Hershey Medical Center with a broken pelvis and a severe brain injury. Doctors told her family that Sanya only had a 5-10 percent chance of waking up.

"Within eight days she woke up," said Tanya.

Sanya is now at the at the Fox Subacute Center in Mechanicsburg. She is still on a ventilator. Her sister is by her side every day and says Sanya continues to make improvements like pointing and giving them a thumbs up.

"There's still a connection there, and I can feel it when I look at her," Tanya said. "She is definitely a fighter, and I am right along with her. I will stay with her the whole time."

The family has set up The Sanya Wagner Fund at www.gofundme.com/7y7v0s. They hope to raise enough money to bring Sanya home so she can be with her 4-year-old son.
