Friends and Fam,I am asking for your help in supporting my life-long "extended family" members during this difficult time. Many of you already know that our friend Ryan Hedgpeth was involved in a terrible car accident this week that resulted in her being flown to a hospital in West Virginia where she is expected to under-go surgery, and will likely have a complicated and lengthy road to recovery. BUT... if there is one thing I know to be true, it is that Ryan is a strong-willed lady and a fighter to the core, and she WILL persevere. Her loyal friend "Blue" the Bernese Mountain dog was riding with her at the time of the accident, and despite having a broken femur, was able to stay with Ryan until help could arrive; the definition of man's best friend. He is also under-going surgery to repair his leg and will later require physical therapy to help with the healing process.This family has been a rock for me and my family through some very dark and trying times, and they have been active members of the Hurt and Altavista communities for many, many years. They are constantly giving to others and would never ask for anything in return even in a time of need... and they shouldn't have to. As a tight-knit community I should hope that it goes without saying they deserve any help we can provide, and this page is just one way of making it easy for those of us looking to help, but don't quite know how.Todd, Judith, Ben, Ryan, Sarah... we love you guys and are thinking about you all and praying for you and your family and sending nothing but positive vibes your way!! Many thanks & much love to all!-Meagan#RyanStrong

#RYANSTRONG Update: Ryan will have a procedure (chest tube) put in through her ribs and will run up to her lungs. Unfortunately, she is still having difficulty with her left lung but she is where she needs to be...at the Shepherd Center...and will begin her rehab. Judith and Sarah are with her. Keep praying....that lung wants to slow her down, but something tells me she is not going to let it!

Meanwhile, if you have seen my prev FB posts, “Blue” has began small doses of rehab as well. Today, he and I will head to the Lynchburg Humane Society around 3 for more intense rehab with Kirstin & Dr. Milligan. Dr Mulligan does rehab, laser therapy and acupuncture at LHS on Wednesday’s.

This dynamic duo is unstoppable! Keep the thoughts and prayers coming. They are working! For those who would like to send cards, etc....here is the address:
Ryan Hedgpeth
C/o Shepherds Center
2020 Peach Tree Rd NW
Atlanta, GA 30309

Thanks everyone! We are #RYANSTRONG!!

#RYANSTRONG: update.... I just spoke with Judith. They have settled in at Shepherd center. Sara is staying in the apt. And Judith is by Ryan’s side. Ryan’s is having some difficulty with her left lung again, so she will be having a procedure to help identify the problem. Once her breathing is better and her lung is healed she will start intensive therapy for her back and spinal injuries. Judith said she is more talkative now. The following is Ryan’s address:

Please continue to pray for Ryan and her family. Her journey is just beginning, but she is strong and God is good ❤️Blue is doing fabulous and is walking and giving wet kisses

You actually can just call Peaks View Animal Hospital at 434-385-1300 and just say you would like to make a donation for “Blue” Hedgpeth and they will just credit Ryan’s account. Also, Evelyn Brumfield Vaden is still collecting funds also. I can’t tell you all how much I appreciate you reaching out and wanting to help....I’m just in awe! If I haven’t responded via text message or FB message, I will....I promise...it’s just so dang many of you that care! Ha and I can’t THANK YOU ENOUGH! Todd and Judith are just so thankful for everyone’s generosity, prayers and concerns!!! God is good and his people are too! #RYANSTRONG
