St. Louis (KSDK) -- Friends, family and even strangers are pulling for and praying for a young woman from Fenton tonight.

The local soccer player was severely injured in a scooter accident in Cape Girardeau where she attends school.

Meghan Herndon was hit by a truck this past Sunday.
She is in a coma with what doctors call 'potentially devastating injuries.'

Thursday night her alma matter Rockwood Summit High School paid tribute to her with her number "2" painted on the soccer field.

Herndon is a soccer player at Southeast Missouri State. Teammates dedicated a game to her earlier this week.

And support is coming in online from around the country and even the world.

"You think you're teared-out and you find out two seconds later you're not," says Ian "Scooter" Herndon, Meghan's father. "Seeing the outpouring of so many people...it's amazing and those are the types of things that keep you going," says Ian Herndon.

Earlier this week Meghan's father received a call from St. Louis native Cardinal Timothy Dolan, the Archbishop of New York. Cardinal Dolan told Ian fear does the family no good, they have to trust in God.

The Herndon's say they are praying for a miracle.

A fellow soccer player and high school friend is selling bracelets for Meghan that read, "Pray4Meg."

The family says all proceeds will help with mounting medical bills.

The email address to find out more information about ordering the $2 bracelets is:
