Today and Tuesday: Benefit for 17-Year-Old Lindsey Nick @ Sicilian Oven
|Get well soon, Lindsey!|
Lindsey's loved ones say that
she juggles school, volleyball, and a job. From them: "The cause remains unknown, and the diagnosis has varied as her condition progressed. The current diagnosis is Interstitial Pneumonitis. The inflammation in her lungs has begun healing, but it is unclear as to the extent of the damage. An initial pathology report indicated severe fibrosis (scar tissue). A second report indicated otherwise. We are awaiting a third opinion from the experts at Texas Children's Hospital which will hopefully give us a better understanding. While we hope and pray that her lungs heal completely, her long term prognosis remains unclear."
The proprietors at Sicilian Oven in Lighthouse Point -- we gave them our Best Pizza award this year -- are donating 15 percent of all sales today and tomorrow; they will also host a silent auction and raffle tomorrow from 6:30 to 10 p.m. Neighbors will hold a garage sale on November 13 to raise money for her; and donors can write checks to a trust account set up for her at Wachovia Bank.
