At the end of this month,
there will be two separate benefits to assist Lyndie Jones and her family.On March 22, the second annual
memorial Run for Annabelle will take place, beginning at 8:30 a.m.

Lyndie Jones is the daughter of
Katie Alsup and Justin Jones of Mount Pulaski. She was born June 20,
2013 — 17 weeks premature. She
weighed 1 pound, 5 ounces at birth and has been in the St. John's
Neonatal Intensive Care Unit since birth. To date she has had three
surgeries, including heart surgery, a tracheotomy and a feeding tube
installation. When Lyndie does get to come home, she will require
in-home nursing care.
The Run for Annabelle was first
held to assist the family of Annabelle Phillips. Annabelle was born
in November of 2012 and soon after diagnosed with a malignant brain
tumor. For Annabelle, there was no solution to her sickness and she
died in January of 2013. The run was to assist her parents, Darin
and Amy Phillips, with the expenses they incurred.
This year the Phillips couple asked
that the Run for Annabelle continue as a means of paying forward the
generosity that was shown them by the community. They are hopeful
that the community will come out and support the family of Lyndie in
the same loving way they did a year ago in memory of Annabelle.
