JACKSONVILLE, Fla -- Teysha Silva-Roman is reliving her life over the past year.

Friday will be the first anniversary of the day she lost her mother.

"My mom was murdered and it's been a year. My mom was murdered tomorrow," said Silva-Roman.

Silva-Roman was the guest speaker for the breakfast.

Her mother, Zuheily Rosada, a mother of six, was shot at point blank range at a gas station in Palm Coast.

The bold attack was caught on surveillance video.

It took police about 7 months to arrest Joseph Bova.

"I've been trying to stay strong knowing she's gone," said Silva-Roman.

She says the justice coalition is that strength for her.

Thursday, they were there for her again.

The organization awarded her an SUV, gas cards, and an iPad.

All were donated from members of her community.

"I'm in shock I'm a teen it's like every teenagers dream to get a car be able to go out places," said Silva Roman.

The coalition also raised thousands of dollars meant to help other families just like Silva-Roman.

"It will help us so we may be able to to help a family like Zuheily Rosada," said executive director of the Justice Coalition Ann Dugger.

Families of those who died last year say today was emotional but uplifting. They hope money raised for the coalition today will surpass $75,000.

Last year the Justice Coalition says they collected somewhere around $60,000.

The organization said it has almost met its $75,000 goal.
