Fundraising for her Granddaughter

1 Apr

Whitney Williams has a great attitude and is always ready to offer up a smile. She bravely and gracefully lives her life despite the many difficulties she faces.

Since birth, Whitney has been affected by the condition cerebral palsy, which is a common congenital disorder that affects about 500,000 children and adults of all ages throughout the United States. Cerebral palsy involves the brain and nervous system, affecting muscle tone, movement and motor skills. While there is no cure, the utilization of stem cell transplants is often used to try and combat this condition.

Hoping to provide her granddaughter with every opportunity, Carolyn Brasher was able to raise the funds for a first stem cell transplant, which she says has helped Whitney tremendously. Showing great improvement, Whitney is now able to play cards, which is one of her favorite past-times.

Carolyn is trying to raise money for a second transplant, which could continue to improve Whitney’s ability to use certain functions and her overall quality of life. Carolyn shared that she has raised almost $1600 so far with Popcorn Palace’s fundraising program!

“I just wanted to give Popcorn Palace a big thank you for helping us get the fundraiser for my granddaughter off the ground and started. Thanks so much for your help and advice.”

If you would like to make a donation to help Carolyn raise the funds needed for Whitney’s transplant, please send any gifts to:

FBO for Whitney Williams
Happy State Bank
PO Box 7865
Amarillo, TX 79109

Popcorn Palace would like to wish Carolyn and Whitney all the best in the future!
