Coddington Update

Staff Uncategorized 0 Comments

I had this update to “Journalism Generosity” sent to me on my personal blog and thought I would share:

UPDATE: Because of people like you who have been willing to share Steve’s struggle with others, we have raised nearly $20,000.00 for Marian Coddington’s desperately needed therapy. We are deeply grateful for all of the support you have already given Steve and Marian.

Our greatest hurdle has been reaching as many people as we can to help raise the money Steve needs to get Marian the intensive therapies she requires to recover as completely as possible. Marian CAN recover. She is not a vegetable. She is there, trapped in a body she cannot control. But she is in there.

Today, a short video was released by Brave New Films that features Steve and Marian’s story. We appeal to you, once again, to help us. Please, go to the blog (http://savestevesfamily.blogspot.com), watch the video and pass it along to anyone you think might be willing to help. We are already so thankful for the hundreds of people who have gotten us this far. We just haven’t gone far enough yet. But we will. And you can count on it.

PLEASE, tell your Facebook friends about Steve, twitter it out to all your tweeps, share it with your coworkers, but keep telling his story.

Good job!
