On Tuesday, March 4, 2014, Melanie Ponce De Leon, a 9 year old 3rd grade student at Golden Grove Elementary in West Palm Beach, Florida, experienced what no child or adult should ever have to! While walking home from the bus stop she was struck by a car. Her injuries were so great that she had to be flown by helicopter to the hospital, where she now remains in critical condition.
We need your help to show her that her community and the nation cares! Remember, many are mightier than one, and if you can simply make a small donation we can make a difference!
Please take a moment to look at the newspaper article regarding the accident (Click on the link below). Golden Grove Elementary's PTO has set-up this website to assist the family with expenses so that they can concentrate on and spend time at their daughter's side rather than worrying about less important things.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us directly at 561-904-9734.

Sorry it has taken me so long to post an update regarding Melanie. A few weeks back I was able to watch a video of her walking and I was told she was able to answer questions with a thumbs up or down. I went to visit her last week to delivery 3 huge Easter Baskets filled with lots of purple. Unfortunately she had a procedure a few days prior and it seemed to have set her back. She was not able to communicate with us and was not moving her right arm or leg. I have no doubt that she will overcome her injuries but she has a long road ahead of her. Please continue to pray for her and her family.
