In one of my January newsletters, I shared information of a young Stittsville girl with cerebral palsy named Lamitta looking to fund an important surgery to give her the ability to walk.
The selective dorsal rhizotomy surgery is an expensive procedure which costs upwards of $200,000. Residents all year have been coming together to help raise funds for this brave and joyful girl in whatever ways they can including carwashes, bakesales, and fundraisers.
Lamitta’s surgery is currently scheduled for September and it is not too late to help out.
A fundraiser bottle drive is taking place on Monday, August 7th for Lamitta’s Wish! Bottles and cans will be collected from 9am-2pm and residents may drop off donations at 104 Par-la-Ville Circle.
If you are unable to drop off your empty bottles/cans or would like to make arrangements for an early drop-off, please message Kim Hine on Facebook. Volunteers are also welcomed to help out.
I highly encourage all residents to support this great cause and help out a resident in need. Alternatively, if you would like to donate funds to Lamitta’s family directly, you can do so here.
