Joan Mitchell

As most of you know Joan was involved in an accident Tuesday morning.  She is in the Trauma ICU at the Regional Medical Center (The MED) in Memphis.  She a broken arm, shoulder and her back is also broke.  Doctors are saying she may never walk again (Paralyzed from above the waist down) but they have been wrong before.  Joan is in good spirits and will talk to you when you get to see her.

They are going to need help during these hard times in any way we as friends and fellow HAMs can provide.   As may of you know being over there cost money so We are asking you for any help you can give being money, food cards, gas cards and hotel room reservations.

If you want to buy him a room there is a Comfort Inn (42 S. Camilla St.) a few blocks away 901-526-1050 rates are from $83.00 to $93.00 a night(mention hospital rate).  ANY help would be greatly appreciated!!

All money raised from the site will go to Joan and Henry.  I will forward any info as I get it.   If you have any questions about anything give Travis a call 870-931-8743.
