The Harringtons Need Our Help

When I decided to open my furniture store in Ventura, I knew NO ONE.  Thank God for my realtor and former roommate from USC, Joanne Carolan.  Joanne immediately introduced me to her friend Valerie Harrington, who had always wanted to own a Vintage store. 

The rest is history….I couldn't have wished for a better person to start my team.  She was, and is, instrumental in the Lynn's Consignment success.  I love this lady, as an employee, and as a friend.  I am sure that those of you in Ventura LOVE seeing her smiling face in the store,  her willingness to help and the way she calls us all "honey".

I have been included in so many aspects of her family….as a guest to her and her husband Ron's daughter Taryn's Wedding in October of 2018, Super Bowl Sunday spent at their home in 2019 with Ron cooking up his delicacies, and just sharing in their daily joys and struggles.  I am blessed to have both Ron and Val in my life.

That is why it is with a heavy heart that we have started this Go Fund Me Campaign.  Val had been worried about Ron for a while.  He had lost a lot of weight and fainted at a recent function.  After a scary incident at their home, he wound up in the ER where he was diagnosed with Esophageal cancer on January 22nd.  It is stage 2/3 and the tumor is about 6" long.

Ron will start Chemotherapy the week of 2/25.  After a two month intensive round of Chemo, he will rest for four weeks, and then they will operate to remove the tumor.

Time is of the essence as Ron is unable to work.  As the chemo takes its toil, Val will also have to spend more time away from the store.  The financial burden of this medical emergency on Val's family is overwhelming and keeping them up at night with worry. 

Cancer is a terrible diagnosis, but one that will NOT win against the Harrington family.  Our financial donations will help them to focus on this IMPORTANT battle and not spend their precious energy worrying about money or being able to afford treatment.

Please do anything you can to help the Harringtons.  Let's help Val and Ron smile again as they embark on this fight that they WILL WIN.
