A terrifying and scary situation for the Braxton family as Tamar Braxton was hospitalized recently. As those who are familiar with the family know, Tamar and Toni’s sister, Traci Braxton, passed away earlier this year at the age of 50. So, the hearts of this family were very much in their throats during Christmas week after Tamar was rushed to the hospital via ambulance because she was having trouble breathing.
