As many of you are aware Devon Hamilton from Wheelersburg was involved in a terrible accident the day after Christmas. Currently Devon is at OSU Hospital receiving care and rehab. However, as many of you understand insurance only covers so mu ch and Devon is being released earlier than expected, requiring intense home rehab. At this time several friends and community volunteers are involved in a project to build a room addition onto Devon's house so she may come home soon, this must be done to avoid being placed in a nursing home by the end of March. As I'm sure all of us would rather see our child at home rather than in a nursing home if we were in this situation. We currently have several volunteers to to assist with this project, although any help is welcome. What I am asking is for anyone who can contribute monetary donations to build this room for Devon please give to Christ Community Church in Devon Hamiltons name. Any and all donations would be greatly appreciated as the project is expected to cost around 30K. At this time we have approximately 4-5K. We have alot to get done in a short time as Devon could come home by the end of the month. However, due to her hopefully temporary paralysis and need for medical equipment/wheelchair, this will only happen if the room addition meets Medical Disabilty Act Standards. Thank you for your time in reading this message. A dear friend of Devon's father.

Mr. Clay at Christ Community Church is a good contact. Or just come lend a hand, just east of Tan Land pool on Old Gallia in Wheelersburg, two story yellow house, can't miss it. Mr. Chuck Yealy is heading up the project. God bless and thank you.

I knew nothing of this terrible accident, I will send prayers and ask our church members if they could contribute and maybe get some of the other churches to chip in. Or maybe you have already done this? I know that church and they do a lot of good things, if they have some type of fun raising event I would be glad to help. I will bring it up at church next Sunday, our prayers are with you.

Thanks Cliff, I'm really not sure what all has been done as far as contacting other churches. I only know Mr. Yealy who is overseeing the project gave an estimated cost and I'm trying to do anything I can to get the word out. Mr. Ralph Clay is a good contact at Christ Community if you have any questions.

Please people help, we send millions over seas to people that hate the USA and now a local child needs our help. I ask everyone to chip in a couple of bucks and give it to Mr. Clay at Christ Community. Start a fund or neighborhood drive or yard sale or anything I feel so helpless.

Also I want to let anyone who can not donate there time to help with fund raisers but would like to help out with expenses for her and her family that there is an accout set up in Devons name at Desco Federal Credit Union. All you have to do is go there and tell them you want to put money in the account for Devon. Thank you ahead of time.

I believe the footer was dug and poured yesterday. Come on folks, stop by Desco this week and drop a 5 in Devons account, we can all spare 5 bucks. It will add up quickly if we ALL jump in!

What's the status of this sad story about this young lady? Is she permanently in a wheel chair or is she home? Or what?
