Mayci to benefit

Mayci to benefit

“Mayci’s Miracle Day” to benefit 7-year-old Mayci Hogg of Samburg is set for Saturday at Tiptonville’s National Guard armory, located at 2375 State Route 21 East. Barbecue plates and Boston butt will be available for sale to the public starting at 11 a.m. and continuing until the food is depleted. Other activities will include a huge bake sale; a silent auction featuring many large items, including a Jiffy Steamer and Ducks Unlimited print; pay-to-play Nintendo Wii; and children’s events, including Mayci’s Fishing Pond. At 1 p.m., Kim Roy from Styles Salon in Dyersburg will have her head shaved, which she has promised to do if $3,000 in donations are received. The goal has not yet been reached, though, and donations are still being accepted. To volunteer to work during the event or to donate items for the event, contact Alicia Tippit at (731) 676-8539. Mayci, the daughter of Richard and Kristi (Roberson) Hogg of Samburg, was born with a rare mitochondrial disorder. She is currently undergoing Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy at the Integrative Hyperbaric Center in Fitchburg, Wis. An account has been established to help with Mayci’s medical expenses. Donations may be mailed to the Mayci Shea Hogg Fund, c/o Commercial Bank & Trust Co., P.O. Box 370, Union City, TN 38281. Updates about Mayci’s treatment are being posted on her Web site at: www.westtennesseecares.com. The site also allows visitors to sign a guest book and leave messages of encouragement for the family, as well as make donations through PayPay to help with medical expenses.
