UPDATED: Here is the story about Jaydon.
I’ll have a story in the paper soon about Jaydon Griffith, the little boy from Garrard who received a heart transplant in Arkansas last year. There was a big event held to raise funds to cover his medical costs, so I think many people will be interested and glad to hear he’s doing well and continuing to grow up with a new heart. It’s quite amazing to hear his mom talk about all the surgeries, complications and other obstacles Jaydon has been through, and then to see him sitting in her lap, alive and content.
There are also plans in the works for our newest reporter at the Advocate, Mandy Simpson, to profile a very special Garrard County person. Mandy started here on Tuesday, and she’ll be helping me cover Garrard County as well as helping David Brock cover Boyle County.
I’ll post links here when those stories become available.
