“Cheer” star Maddy Brum is counting her blessings after surviving a car accident.
“I’m feeling extra blessed today,” Brum said on Instagram Thursday, alongside a series of photos of herself in a hospital bed in Kansas City, Missouri. “Blessed to be alive and blessed to be surrounded by people who give me nothing but happiness and comfort.”
The cheerleader revealed that the accident had occurred two days before her post, she had been crossing the street with cheerleaders Angel Rice, James Thomas and Javon “Jay” Kendrick as “a car turned and drove into me at 20-30 mph.”

“Luckily, I only left with bruises and cuts on my body,” she 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 thanked the Cheer Tour team for providing her with an orthopedic surgeon that made sure she “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,” Maddy added. “I am so unbelievably thankful that I am still alive and still get the opportunity to do what I love.
