'Feeling extra blessed': ‘Cheer’ star Maddy Brum glad to be alive after being hit by car
A 19-year-old star of Netflix’s ‘Cheer’ has reportedly been hospitalized after a car hit her while she was crossing the street. Maddy Brum took to Instagram to give updates to her fan after getting involved in the horrifying accident. She shared, “I’m feeling extra blessed today. Blessed to be alive and blessed to be surrounded by people who give me nothing but happiness and comfort.”
She then went on to explain what exactly happened with her as she wrote, “Two days ago, Angel, James, Jay and I were crossing the street at a cross walk, where a car turned and drove into me at 20-30 mph. Luckily, I only left with bruises and cuts on my body.” The teenager continued, “Thank you to my people @amazingjamestho @qangel_rice @thejaykendrick for being by my side and making sure I was safe and okay. I have the bestest friends. 🥺”
Brum also expressed her gratitude towards cheertourofficial as she added: “Thank you to @cheertourofficial for helping me at the hospital, as well as getting an orthopedic surgeon to make sure I was okay to still do what I love. I will be doing the tour to the best of my ability for the next few shows. I am so unbelievably thankful that I am still alive and still get the opportunity to do what I love.”
Along with the long post, the cheerleader, who is part of Netflix’s docuseries that “follows the ups and downs of Navarro College's competitive cheer squad as they work to win a coveted national title”, posted two pictures as well. One showed her posing in a face mask while holding a coffee cup on a hospital bed. The other photograph was of fellow 'Cheer' star Angel Rice, who was seen checking up on Brum.
In her social media share, she also thanked fellow Navarro cheerleader Deidra Lizette for filling in for her now. She noted: “Thank you @deidraa_lizette for being a ROCKSTAR and coming in on such short notice while i’m recovering. I love you all! Thank you❤️.”
The comment section of Brum’s post was filled with well wishes for her. Rice wrote, “Love you mama ❤️🔥 you are so brave and strong 💪🏾.” TikTok star Markell Washington said, “I’m so glad your ok my love 🥺🥺💕💕 I know that had to be scary , I’ll keep you in my prayers.” Gabi Butler commented: “I love you, Madison!
