Benefit to be held for wreck victim

August 18, 2006

Moultrie - Family and friends of a South Georgia woman seriously injured in a wreck are asking for your help.

Heather Taylor is a sonography student at Darton College. In July, her car collided with a semi-truck. She was unconscious when first responders arrived. Taylor still hasn't woken up.

Now, friends and family members are holding a poker run and concert to raise money for hospital bills, and hotel rooms for her family members who have to travel to Jacksonville to see her.

Cousin Shannon Allen says, "It's hard not having her close, and we want her to wake up. We can deal with anything in the world that's wrong with her, if she would just wake up."

The poker run and concert take place next Saturday, August 26th, in Moultrie. There has also been a Heather Taylor fund set up at Southwest Georgia Bank. For more information, contact Shannon Allen at 229-850-0511.
