HOW Event Honors Martha Medina

OAKHURST – The local chapter of the nonprofit organization Helping One Woman (HOW) will meet on Wednesday, Feb. 15, at the Elks Lodge, in support of Coarsegold resident Martha Medina and family, on behalf of son, Nicolas.

Nic was in an auto accident on Oct. 28, 2016. He sustained traumatic brain injury and was airlifted to Community Regional Medical Center and, much later, transferred to Children’s Hospital.

“Martha has been by Nic’s side since that day and has documented his miraculous journey for the community, which has given hope and inspiration to so many around her,” say organizers.

Event sponsors include Kimberly Vinson, Bettie Perry, Jen O. Yates and Cheryce Chartier.

Nic is now at the Centre for Neuro Skills rehabilitation facility in Bakersfield, which is very good and very costly.

“It’s been majorly helpful to Nic that Martha has been with him every day,” says Cheryce. “We give a high recommendation to the Centre for Neuro Skills. Nic would not be doing so well it weren’t for that amazing place and their live-in program! I was in awe when I was there to see it.”

Those participating in the HOW benefit will place $10 or more toward a contribution for Martha and family, and pay for their own dinners. Proceeds from the evening go directly to the Medinas at the end of the evening.

RSVPs are requested by Thursday, Feb. 9 for this HOW dinner, so the Elks can know how much food to make. Please note that dinner is optional, and attendance and participation are encouraged, even without dining.

The Elks Lodge is located at 42484 CA-41 in Oakhurst.

Attendees are asked to leave a message, or text RSVP to Cheryce Chartier at (559) 760-2874, or RSVP on the Facebook event page.

Monetary and gift donations or gifts for the prize drawing may be dropped off at Pak & Page, located at 40108 CA-49 C in Oakhurst.

HOW says that “one woman with $10 can buy another woman lunch. Ten women giving $10 can buy another woman’s groceries. One hundred women giving $10 can make a real difference in another woman’s life.”
