Money shared a photo of her daughter hooked up to machines at a children's hospital in Salt Lake City, Utah.

"Brielle was in a terrible skateboarding accident and is in the ICU on life support. She suffered a serious brain trauma and a fractured skull. She is in a medically induced coma to relieve pressure on her brain," Money captioned the post.

Money asked for prayers and support for Brielle, calling her daughter's accident "the worst experience" of her life. She said Brielle was not wearing a hemet at the time of the accident and was found by neighbors on a walk.

"ALWAYS MAKE THEM WEAR THE HELMET. ALWAYS. EVEN WHEN THEY PUSH BACK," Money told fans.

"I would not have found her in time. My heart is forever grateful," she said. "Thank you to all of you who have sent prayers and messages and love. Brielle has been through so much already this year. She has proven how strong she is. I know she will pull through."
