Little Girl Needs Our Prayers and Support
Jackie Shenk is a sweet little girl from Broadway who is in the struggle of her life, and she could really use all our prayers and love right now.
Jackie is undergoing treatment for Hemolytic Uremic Syndrome at U.V.A Medical center.
Please join me and Dianne to let the Shenk Family know that we support them in this time of need.
Here is a note her Dad, Josh sent out this evening:
"We will be anointing Jackie with oil around 7 pm this evening, this is not last rights at all, its a way of giving jackie up to the Lord and putting her into His hands and under His care more than likley Jackie will be heading into surgery at some point tomorow. Tonight it will be Me and Melody, all Jackies siblings, jackies grandpearents, and her great-grand parents, plus Melodys new boyfriend and my brother Ian and Amy (by phone) and all of you in spirt! Thank you all for all your support!"
Here is a Facebook group set up by her Dad.
Her family is getting worn thin folks.
Would you please send them your well wishes in care of Josh's Mother? (Jackie's Grandmother)

I know these good people would never think of asking, but I know that spending so much time in Charlottesville would have to be taking a toll on their emotions, but also has a tremendous cost. I'm asking you to consider tucking a little money into the get well cards for Jackie.
You could make checks to her Dad, Joshua Shenk with "Get Well Jackie" in the memo line.
I know you are good and caring people. You've shown me that many times during the past years...
Let's be there for this little girl and her family when they need some friends.
Thank you sincerely,
Lowell and Dianne Fulk
A very good man in our community (Rockingham County) has offered to hold a chicken BBQ to raise funds for Jackie's family. He understands very well.
He will provide the equipment and use his employees to do the work, and has a ready market so no one will have to stand on street corners with coolers.
Will you help me pay for the chicken and charcoal so that all the proceeds can be donated?
If you can help, send me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
