Joran’s Special Needs

My dear friend Kay has been caring for her 21-year-old daughter, Joran, since a car accident left her with a Traumatic Brain Injury last March.  Kay has turned her living room into a hospital room, moving in a hospital bed and caring for Joran around the clock.  Kay has learned to feed Joran through a feeding tube and care for the tracheostomy tube in her throat.  Kay and her family are doing an amazing job, and they are full of hope for Joran’s recovery and keep Joran surrounded with positivity and love.  Ellie’s 50’s Diner has generously agreed to host a Fundraiser and Spaghetti Dinner Buffet for Joran on Sunday May 1, and Whitestone Band and Elvis are donating their time and talents.  Please come out and support Joran and her family, and see what HOPE is all about.

Special thanks to BP, IP, PS and HS for coming up with the amazing idea of making jewelry to support Joran.  They have raised $16 so far with their handmade jewelry.  That will almost pay for an hour of nursing care to give Kay a break.  WAY TO GO, GIRLS!!!!!!
