Kayla Rath

Kayla Rath was 9 years old when her father, Brad Livingston, was injured on the job in a 100% preventable accident.  For 3 months, as Brad fought for his life, the lives of his family were uprooted and devastated.  You will hear from Kayla what it’s like to be pulled from school only to be told your father may not survive the night, and you’ll face the reality that the decisions you make on the work site don’t affect only yourself, but the ones you love most. 

Kayla lives with her husband, Eric, and their 5 children in Canyon, TX.  She travels the country speaking about the impact of growing up with a handicapped father and how a decision made 27 years ago still impacts her today.
