The Journey Home Harvest Event: Weekend Fundraiser For Tri-State Teen
Mary Frances Lewis-Fulkerson is an Owensboro teenager who was injured in a horrible car accident in September. Although doctors didn’t expect her to survive 24 hours after the accident, Mary Frances still continues to prove them wrong. She’s a feisty little fighter!
One of five children, Mary Frances is now at the Craig Institute in Englewood, California. Although she has already far-exceeded all expectations put on her, she still has an incredible journey ahead of her.
The Journey Home Harvest Event this weekend is a way for YOU to help and support this young girl and her family.
The event is Friday, November 15th 4:00pm-7:00pm, Saturday, November 16th 8:00am – 4:00pm and Sunday, November 17th 1:00pm – 3:00pm at the Agape House, 508 West Second Street in Owensboro.

Here is an excerpt from her Facebook page, written by her Mother…
Mary has a long road ahead of her. She has to re-learn so many things. Health wise she is doing great, but ability is where we are going to face our greatest stepping stones. This may be a two year process. I use the words us and our, because I will be by my daughter’s side until she reaches every goal she needs to. I think the hardest part for most to understand is that when we leave here, our entire house must be wheelchair accessible. My truck also will have to accommodate Mary’s needs. She will have countless hours each day of speech, occupational, and physical therapy. Not only do we have to go to different facilities, but we have to have the things at home she will need as well.
We need the help of our community and private donors to ensure that Mary Frances will reach her maximum potential. I don’t want to beg for anything, but in retrospect I will do anything for my child to have the things she needs. If I could at this time give a concise idea of how funds will/would be allocated, I would. The best I can say is that all monies will be used to benefit Mary. It may be for medical expenses, medical equipment, and helping with making our home accessible to Mary, medicine, or bills. All in all, the money will be spent on Mary and helping her.
