Sydney Vickery, a young girl from our community, has been suffering from many seizures caused by an auto- immune disease called Anti- NMDA Receptor Encephalitis. This disease attacks certain brain receptors and causes these seizures, as well as memory loss, and loss of motor functions.
There have been many fundraisers held already, such as a bake sale, “Shoots for Sydney”, and t- shirts. The second round of ordering for t-shirts has not yet begun, but will proceed once the first round of orders arrive.
Coming up this weekend more fundraisers will be held. On Friday August 24th a Bubba Burger Sack Lunch will be held at the Granite City Hardware parking lot from 11:30 in the morning to 1:30 in the afternoon, and on Saturday August 25th a “Car Wash for Sydney” will be held at NorthEast Georgia Bank starting at 10:00 in the morning.
All funds raised this weekend will go to benefit Sydney and her family.
