Help Grace GO!

Hi, my name is Melissa and I am fundraising for the Pitts family. Grace Pitts, a 16 year old Junior at JHS, was in a car accident two weeks ago that shattered her L3 vertebrae. She had emergency surgery at the NN Riverside and stayed for about 9 days. Despite her drive and determination and the best efforts of the incredible staff there, Grace needed therapy that couldn't be provided locally. This past Tuesday, she and her mom boarded a private medical flight to be transferred to the Shepherd Center in Atlanta, GA for an extensive rehabilitation program lasting 4-6 weeks in duration (followed by more to be done at home upon their return). Initially, the flight wasn't going to be covered by insurance and whether it will or not remains to be seen. Now, the family finds out insurance will likely only pay for one week at the Shepherd Center but they are projected to be there for at least one month. Grace NEEDS this rehabilitation with the experts to learn to use her leg again and the last thing the family needs to be concerned with is finances. The Pitts do for others in our community all the time. Now it's our turn to support them. Grace is an honor student who participates in Key Club (community service club), Gang Green, Spanish Club, and the English Honor Society. She is also an avid piano player, Girl Scout Ambassador having earned both her Bronze and Silver Awards, and Fife and Drum Junior Corp Alumni. She's brilliant, kind, and beautiful - inside and out. Let's help this warrior in the fight to recover. #GoGraceGo
