Sherri LaFountain Wiegand Benefit Hog Roast
One of the many lessons we teach our students is helping others in need. We have an opportunity to help a member of our community as well as a member of the family here at North Liberty Elementary School.
Sherri (LaFountain) Wiegand, a lifelong resident of Walkerton, Indiana was recently diagnosed with a spinal cord injury called Transverse Myelitis. This condition was caused by her immune system attacking the spinal cord, destroying its lining and exposing the nerves that control the lower half of her body, leaving her paralyzed from the waist down. While doctors have given Sherri a 33% chance of a full recovery, she has kept a positive attitude and works hard every day towards her recovery goals.
Sherri’s treatment plan includes a projected one-year regiment of intense physical therapy and additional medical treatment. At this point, Sherri and her family live one day at a time, waiting to see if her body will heal. Hoping for the best, but preparing for the worst.
The friends and family of Sherri are organizing a benefit to assist her with her uncovered medical expenses, transportation costs (to and from physical therapy) and any other needs that may arise due to her condition.
