Jim & Jill Kelly sign in support of Hunter's Hope

Sat, 18 Sep 2010 01:42:00 +0000

We are honored to be hosting a very special event on Thursday, September 23rd at 7pm.

Many of our customers have already heard that Pro Football Hall of Famer Jim Kelly will be in out store signing his book next week. What you may not know is the powerful story behind the book he co-wrote with his wife, Jill Kelly, titled Without A Word.

Jim and Jill Kelly were blessed with a very special child, Hunter, who was severely disabled and terminally ill. In the time that Hunter was alive his family learned a great deal about Leukodystrophies, inherited, progressive disorders that affect the brain, spinal cord and peripheral nerves. They struggled with caring for their son and relied heavily on their faith to bring them through. The Kelly's decided to turn their own trials into something that could benefit other families and created Hunter's Hope, and organization that provides support to affected families and works to educate the public about Leukodystrophies.

If you'd like more information about how you can get involved in the fight against these severe disorders, or if you'd like more information about Hunter's Hope or the Kelly family we hope you'll stop by the store on Thursday night and visit this wonderful group of people. Members from Hunter's Hope will also be on hand with information about how you can get involved.
