Helping Harmony Foundation

Heather TwiggAs most of you know, on May 1, 2011 Heather Twigg past fiddler with the bluegrass band Ed Schaeffer & Rattlesnake Hill and her boyfriend Cory Wharton were struck by a car in Johnson City, TN when they were crossing the street to pass out fliers for DelFest. They are both home and healing up from severe injuries, but are now facing substantial amounts of medical bills. Heather does not have health insurance since she is unemployed and was cut off from her unemployment benefits due to separation from being hospitalized. Cory was unable to start his summer job that he got hired for while studying at ETSU and they cannot play gigs just yet until the doctor gives them permission. They would both like to thank everyone for the cards, gifts, prayers, visitors and phone calls. It means a lot to them.
