In a Coma 87 Days

Posted:

HUDSON (KWWL)

Katy Lynk needs your help, and you'll get a chance to help Katy and her family this Sunday, June 7, at the Hudson Elementary School. Katy is a Hudson High School graduate, recovering from some very serious, life- threatening injuries she suffered in a traffic accident just before Christmas last December. For several days, Katy's very survival was in serious doubt, as she lay in a coma for 87-days, from December 16 until March 12, before slowly awakening from the coma.

Needless to say, it's been a long and challenging road back for Katy and her parents, Dee and Gary Lynk of Hudson. Katy has been slowly, but surely making progress in her struggle, and is now undergoing extensive treatment at the "On With Life," brain injury rehabilitation facility in Ankeny. www.onwithlife.org.

This Sunday, June 7,  The United Methodist Church of Hudson will sponsor a huge benefit day for Kat Lynk at the Hudson Elementary School, 136 South Washington Street, from 10:30 AM until 2 PM.  This very important three and a half hour benefit will feature a variety of activities, including a Grilled Pork burger ‘Free Will; lunch, pie auctions, regular auctions and a silent auction.

The ‘Free Will' lunch, in addition to pork burgers, will include hot dogs, cole slaw, baked beans and beverages. Three separate pie auctions will be held at 11 AM, Noon and 1 PM. The regular auctions will feature a variety of items, including sports equipment. The silent auction features a Grand Prize of a weekend getaway to Galena, Illinois and the Farm House Bed and Breakfast.

For more information, please contact the United Methodist Church in Hudson at 319-988-4535. If you can't make Sunday's benefit, you can still mail any donations or contributions to the Lynk Family Fund, P.O. Box 268, in Hudson, IA, 50643. Checks should be made out to the Hudson United Methodist Church, Lynk Family Fund.

Again, it's the Katy Lynk benefit, Sunday, June 7, at the Hudson Elementary School, 10:30 AM until 2 PM.
