Friends and family are raising money to help out a special local family, Shannon and Reese Lewis, with medical expenses.  Reese and Shannon's 10 year old daughter, Abbey, suffered a medical emergency on December 9, 2015, where a blood vessel in her brain ruptured.  Unknown to the Lewis family, Abbey suffered from a condition called Arteriovenous Malformation (AVM).  Abbey underwent immediate brain surgery to stop the bleeding at Arnold Palmer Hospital where she remains today.  We are blessed that Abbey made it through the first surgery.  However, we know that Abbey has a long road to recovery ahead of her, including additional surgeries and expensive medical treatment.  Abbey's  family continues to stay by her side, missing time from work and incurring expenses for lodging and food.  

Both Reese and Shannon have been civil servants for Volusia and Brevard counties their entire careers.  We are now hoping that the communities they have helped support will now help support them in their time of need.

The Lewis family is overwhelmed by the outpouring of support, generosity and kindness by everyone. Words cannot express their gratitude to each and every one of you!

After a series of tests doctors have found three additional areas of concern that will require additional surgery. Abbey continues to grow a little stronger every day but still needs your love and support. She is resting now for the strength she will need on her journey ahead. Please continue to spread the word and share the link.
