An old family friend, Tammy Parker (Woodlanders will know her as Tammy Garrison, daughter of Doug and Vickie Garrison), and her daughter, Taylor, were in a bad car accident last month. Tammy escaped relatively unscathed, but Taylor suffered extensive spinal cord injuries and, I believe, is now paralyzed from the neck down.
As you might imagine, the medical bills incurred in caring for young Taylor are enormous, and the Parker family is having trouble coping. Fortunately, some of their dedicated friends and family have set up a fundraiser to help offset some of the financial burden. If you live in the Chico, CA area, you can help out by purchasing a pizza from a local Round Table Pizza restaurant. 20% of the proceeds will go to help pay Taylor’s medical bills.
Round Table Pizza Night Fundraiser/Bake Sale: Thursday, December 14th 5:00-9:00
All 3 Chico Locations 20% of all orders (including take-out, pick up, and eating in) will be donated to Taylor’s fund!
More details about Taylor, her Hope Fund, and her progression through recovery are available at a blog set up in her name:
If you would rather make a direct donation, there is a PayPal link set up on the blog.
Please spread the word. The Parkers need all the help they can get right now, and I know they will be appreciative beyond words for anything you can spare, no matter how big or small.
