Many of you are aware Edgewater Firefighter Reese Lewis' daughter Abbey had a blood vessel rupture on December 9, 2015. She is currently at Arnold Palmer Hospital after having brain surgery. She has a long road ahead of her and the firefighters are raising money to help out the family. You can check out the Go Fund me page if you would like to help out. I copied the post from the page below so you can become acquainted with the situation and the family.
Please help out if you can and keep Abbey and her family in your thoughts and prayers.
Friends and family are raising money to help out a special local family, Shannon and Reese Lewis, with medical expenses. Reese and Shannon's 10 year old daughter, Abbey, suffered a medical emergency on December 9, 2015, where a blood vessel in her brain ruptured. Unknown to the Lewis family, Abbey suffered from a condition called Arteriovenous Malformation (AVM). Abbey underwent immediate brain surgery to stop the bleeding at Arnold Palmer Hospital where she remains today. We are blessed that Abbey made it through the first surgery. However, we know that Abbey has a long road to recovery ahead of her, including additional surgeries and expensive medical treatment. Abbey's family continues to stay by her side, missing time from work and incurring expenses for lodging and food.
Both Reese and Shannon have been civil servants for Volusia and Brevard counties their entire careers. We are now hoping that the communities they have helped support will now help support them in their time of need.
