Trash becomes treasure during yard sale

April 12, 2008

Lee County -- Someone's trash truly is a treasure for one Lee County family. Phelima Road Baptist Church held a yard sale Saturday to raise money for Easton Blanchard.

Easton was diagnosed with Muscular Dystrophy and is on call for a transplant at the Children's Hospital in Pittsburgh.

Easton would have to stay in the hospital for six weeks after the transplant and have to stay in Pittsburgh for six months to a year in case of complications.

The money raised will go toward those expenses. "Picking up and relocating and stuff like that. We have to be able to deal with the expenses up there and here. So all the money that is being raised will be used for transplant related expenses to help us survive up there," said mother, Heather Blanchard.

The items that were not sold went to the Albany Rescue Mission.
