Lyndsay Harmon Update

The quest to bring Lyndsay Harmon home healthy from Vanderbilt Medical Center continues. I spoke to The Captain today for an update and the news is mixed. First for the great news; the Lindsay Harmon Fund at CAP has raised nearly $1600 to assist her family who are under severe financial strain. The funds are allowing Lyndsay’s mother to spend more time with her and meet with her doctors. The bad news is Lyndsay has developed an infection and while it’s under treatment the setback has been another blow to her emotionally. She needs her family and friends now more than ever to help her maintain a positive outlook as she recovers. In another round of great news our good friends at CanAffco will be staging a Lyndsay Harmon benefit to help us raise more money to help the family out. Michelle will be posting full details at CAP and I urge you to take part in the benefit as well as providing support via the fund The Captain is administering. If you can lend a hand, a prayer or even a few lines of encouragement please join us here.
