Help needed for Shelby

Posted: 07.17.2018

Dear Region 8 Colleagues and Friends,

It is with a heavy heart but unwavering hope that I send you this news. TBT, Florida USAG, Region 8 and U of Kentucky Alum - Shelby Hilton is facing a second bout with brain cancer and we need your help.

A lot of you know Shelby's inspirational story of illness and then recovery. She is an amazing young woman from a great family and she is one of ours! We banned together last time she fell ill and it is my hope that we can do even more this time. Shelby's friends and family have started a Go Fund Me Page  please help in any way that you can.

In addition to the Go Fund Me page, another "Flight Against Cancer" is being organized for September 8th at Albert Whitted Airport in St. Pete, Florida.  We will post more information as it becomes available.

In the meantime, please do what you can for Shelby and her family in these trying times. Even if the donation is just a few dollars, she will feel the overwhelming love and support of Region 8 and remain #SHELBYSTRONG!

Thanks in advance for your help!

Brad Harris
Region 8 JO Chairman
