A benefit spaghetti feed and silent auction will be held from 5-7 p.m. on Saturday, July 26 at the north campus of Harvest Christian Fellowship for Kim Bolden, who was paralyzed in a 2010 traffic accident.
Bolden, 44, is the daughter of Ron Ellis and Cindy Hastings.
In September 2010, a man pulling a boat ran a stop sign and Bolden was unable to miss him. She ran clear through the boat and trailer and collided with a septic truck.
Friends say life as she and her family knew it changed in an instant. Bolden was paralyzed. The insurance money she was awarded was soon gone.
Bolden has been through many surgeries, and now is in a fight for her life as infection has spread through her body via pressure sores. She weighed 165 pounds before the accident and now weighs just 87 pounds.
She recently went through another surgery and is trying to heal her broken body and her broken heart from domestic trouble. Supporters say Bolden needs help to return to Nebraska to be with her children and her parents.
"Please search your heart and give what you can," supporters say. "And above all, please pray and ask God to help them and bless them thru these difficult days ahead."
