Thoughts and prayers for little Lucy
October 6, 2016
When tragedy strikes in small communities like Grand County it is deeply felt, not just by those directly impacted but also by the friends, neighbors and coworkers of those who experience such calamities.
Tragedy recently struck one of the members of the Sky-Hi News team, Cynthia Washburn and her family.
On Sept. 14 Cynthia's three-month-old baby girl Lucy was taken via Flight-for-Life to Children's Hospital with difficulty breathing. Since Sept. 14 little Lucy has remained under the constant watch of doctors in the pediatric intensive care unit at Children's with ongoing kidney issues.
Doctors have not yet diagnosed Lucy's exact disorder and an update from a You Caring Compassionate Crowdfunding page states, "Lucy is a mystery case to the team of Doctors at Children's Hospital Colorado."
Cynthia and her husband Brad are well known in Grand County, especially within the National Sports Center for the Disabled (NSCD) community where they both work and volunteer. They are kind and selfless individuals who are struggling through what can only be described as one of the most difficult experiences any person can endure.
We at the Sky-Hi News ask you to keep Lucy and her parents in your thoughts and prayers.
If you feel inclined to help the Washburn family in other ways you can check out the You Caring page set up by one of the Washburn's family friends. You can find it by going to http://www.youcaring.com and searching for "Little Lucy".
