Reminder: Jacoby is NOT ready for visitors and no flowers at this time because they are not allowed in her room.
Keep the prayers coming...
Although Jacoby's physical needs are in Gods hands there are some things we can do to help. In addition to our prayers, we can help to relieve the financial burden this is going to have on the Mile's family.
Here are the ways you can help:
Fundraiser #1 - Book Sales:
On the same day of the accident, Melanie Roach's new book "Lift: Enjoying the Journey of Life" was released on Amazon. Melanie has committed to give 100% of the book sale profits to aid in Jacoby's recovery and ongoing expenses. You can purchase the book at Amazon.com.
Fundraiser #2 - Cash Donations:
Roach Gymnastics is accepting cash, check or visa donations on behalf of the Mile's family until a charity account can be set up in Jacoby's name.
Donate online at Roachgymnastics.com. Please specify it is for the Team Jacoby Fund.
